Young Hope is a kingdom community based in Houston, Texas, serving all over the world. We have a deep desire to see Jesus' Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven, to see young people released and freed up to use all of the gifts and passions that they were created to use.

We seek to come alongside many existing ministries in the Houston area and provide support and encouragement to them. We want to be involved in what God is doing in places where the world may say there is not much hope.

We also believe in having strong community and inviting others into our community at different times of the year. We want you to see the passions God has placed in your heart grow and just run in whatever direction He leads you. If in your time at young hope you find God pulling you towards one of these ministries in particular, we will help you to be more involved in them in your time with us.
