Many of you are well aware that HOPE isn’t your typical medical clinic. We celebrate our medical expertise and the services we are able to offer, but this is not all we do. We, thankfully, are able to serve our patients holistically…mind, body, and spirit. We understand that many of our patients’ needs go far [...]

Looking Forward

The first post of the New Year is a difficult one. Should I reflect on the past year? Should I discuss our year-end fundraising efforts? Should I tell a story? Should I provide statistics? Should I discuss what is to come? I find it impossible to only focus on one thing. I could devote the [...]

Year End

Dear Friends of HOPE, What a difference a year makes. We have been blown away at the work of our Lord in 2015. We consider it an honor to partner with you in this gospel work as we seek to impact this community in a very big way. The staff here at HOPE is truly [...]

Thanks for Standing

The staff at HOPE has been blown away the past couple of weeks with your generosity, heart, and engagement for life. I write and talk quite a bit about Christians being called to action. I encourage people all the time to get off the sidelines and get their hands dirty. We are always pushing and, [...]

Two Teams…One Difference

Christian Academy of Knoxville and Grace Christian Academy have been long-time rivals on the football field. Every year, the big CAK vs. GCA football game brings with it much anticipation and excitement. This game is even frequently televised as WBIR’s Prep Xtra game of the week or WVLT’s Rivalry Thursday game of the week. All [...]

It Only Takes A Few

This past week the news was littered with more death in the headlines. We saw another terrorist attack occur as an extremist looked to take the lives of innocent people on a railway car bound for Paris. This guy had enough ammunition to take out the entire train. His plan was an easy one. He [...]

Celebrate the “Not Yet”

The title of this post points to a joyful theological truth. I hear these words, “not yet”, and I am compelled by my God to move, to work, and to love. I am compelled because these words point me to a great and wonderful promise from our God. A promise that trumps all others. A promise that [...]

Thank You

The past few weeks I have received a number of notes from people in our community and surrounding areas simply saying thank you to HOPE for the work we do. These notes are flattering. These notes warm my heart. These notes provide further confirmation to HOPE’s staff that we are making an impact with the work we do. [...]

Going Deeper

One of Hope Resource Center’s greatest joys is coming alongside women as they choose to carry their babies by offering necessary, on-going support at absolutely no cost. Our favorite way to do that is by offering parenting classes that teach young women not only how to care for their babies, but how to be GODLY [...]
