Partnering with Northwoods Community Church

In a world plagued by extreme poverty and sex trafficking, Hope Partners International, under the leadership of Kirk Nowery, President of our organization, he stands as a beacon of HOPE. With 10 Hope Centers spanning six countries on five continents, our mission is to rescue children from the clutches of despair and transform their lives through acts of compassion in Jesus’ name.

During his visit to Northwoods Community Church in Peoria, Illinois, Kirk expressed his overwhelming gratitude for the invitation extended by Jonathan Rychener, the senior pastor, who Kirk has known since childhood. He commended Jonathan’s earnestness and the anointing in his message. Kirk’s heart swelled with pride for Northwoods Community Church, which had achieved a historic milestone in its first-quarter performance. Unfortunately, this success story was overshadowed by the disheartening fact that more churches closed than opened last year.

But last weekend, a remarkable story unfolded at Northwoods. Reminiscent of the legendary missionaries George and Mary Mueller, who founded schools and orphanages while serving as a missionary in Bristol, England, in the early 1800s and relied on God’s provision in every way. Kirk shared this inspiring story with the congregation, setting the stage for a weekend full of miracles beyond anything we could have imagined.

In a time of great need, Northwoods Community Church stepped up to the challenge, generously meeting the needs presented by Kirk, including purchasing a van and providing support for 450 Ukrainian women and children. The outpouring of love and support didn’t stop there, as close to 80 children were fully sponsored in Romania and India during this extraordinary weekend event.

“Your generosity is a mark of being fully devoted followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

– Kirk Nowery, President, Hope Partners International

This father was explaining "child sponsorships" to his daughters and then let each daughter choose a girl to sponsor.

Child sponsorship is a vital aspect of Hope Partners International as it creates a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of the children we serve. By sponsoring a child, you are not only providing them with access to food, education, and a safe environment but also giving them the opportunity to grow and thrive in the love of Jesus Christ.

Through your sponsorship, you are empowering these children to break free from the chains of poverty, overcome challenges, and become all that God created them to be. By partnering with us in child sponsorship, you are contributing to the long-term transformation of their lives and helping them build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.

At Hope Partners International, our mission is to rescue and transform the lives of children in extreme poverty through food, education, and the love of Jesus Christ. With 10 Hope Centers in 6 countries across 5 continents, we’re dedicated to walking long-term with each child, equipping them to overcome the obstacles they face. The extraordinary generosity shown by Northwoods Church during a recent weekend event has made a significant impact on our organization and the children we serve.
