Selling to Give Initiative
Many of you already know how our story together began. We first met on a missionary ship known as the Logos Hope that sails around the world bringing knowledge through books, help through practical and humanitarian aid, and hope through sharing the love of Jesus Christ and His redemption story. During that journey God instilled in our hearts a bigger story; a greater purpose and the reason behind why we do what we do, which has led us to launch our ‘Selling to Give’ initiative!
This initiative is a commitment to contribute ten percent of our firm’s gross revenue to ministry partners around the world with whom we share a personal connection.
Not only will we be in the business of sharing our local expertise and knowledge to help people find a home, but now each home sold will be affecting change in the life of someone else around the world. In addition to giving back we hope to build increased awareness for each one of our ministry partners. We plan to accomplish this by providing our clients the opportunity to learn about the impact these ministries are making and to choose where we allocate the Ten Percent of funds from their transaction. When we partner together, we accomplish more! Local Focus, Global Vision.

Mission: Releasing Children from Poverty in Jesus Name
Summary: Compassion International offers a holistic approach to children’s ministry in developing countries through sponsorship. Each child sponsored is better positioned to break free from spiritual, social, economical, and physical poverty, therefore allowing them the opportunity to live up to their God given potential.
Our Connection: We personally sponsor several children through compassion and have seen firsthand some of the benefits this organization offers by helping serve compassion children in a remote village in Ecuador. In addition two of our dear friends Russ & Stephanie Williams work with Compassion.
Mission: Bringing Knowledge Help and Hope
Summary: Known as the worlds largest floating book fair and with a crew and staff of over four hundred volunteers representing at least fifty different countries, the Logos Hope has welcomed millions of people up her gangways to bring knowledge through books, help through practical and humanitarian aid, and hope through sharing the love of Jesus Christ and His redemption story.
Our Connection: Having both served onboard the ship and having looked into the faces of the nations and heard their stories, the Logos Hope holds a special place in our hearts as it continues to sail the waters to destinations unknown, changing the world one person at time.
Having first begun as a church and quickly growing to include nine campuses with over 20,000 members, Watoto has changed the country of Uganda from the inside out. One of it’s best known ministries is the Watoto children’s villages created to rescue vulnerable women and orphaned children and to raise them as leaders in order to rebuild the nation. We have led multiple teams to these villages and fallen in love with the people we’ve met as they have opened up their homes and their hearts. We have stood on ground once riddled with war and the cry of the child solider but now filled with beauty and the hope that only comes from the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.
Believing that the church is the hope of the world and the avenue in which God has chosen to spread His message, Hope Community Church has partnered with a local Haitian pastor by the name of Jean Alix to start a church in Port Au Prince, Haiti where people can come as they are and encounter the love of Jesus Christ, thus affecting change within the community and the nation. We have led multiple trips to Agape to help reach the community and train up and empower national leaders to bring restoration through Biblical teaching, authentic worship, small groups, and an active children’s program.
Hope Community Church
Reach the Triangle and change the world is a phrase you’ll hear over and over as the church gathers together on a weekly basis to dig deeper into God’s Word and worship Him through song and prayer. Hope Community Church is the place we gather to love people where they are and encourage them to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that the only way we can affect change in ourselves, our churches, our communities, and the nations is through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and living out His command to go and make disciples.
Meaning “your Nicaragua” or better known as “God’s Nicaragua,” founding members Josh Pease and Alan Wilser were given a passion to see the country of Nicaragua (the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere) thrive through access to clean water, education, and by developing leaders through Christian discipleship. David has traveled to this beautiful country and seen the needs that exist and the progress that’s being made. Spending time with the children and walking through their communities, he knows firsthand the benefits that would come from your sponsorship and the transformation waiting to happen because of your generosity and sharing the love of Jesus Christ.
