News. We work to establish a house church which will then birth another house church.
House to house, adding souls to the Kingdom of God!

After nine years of working and living on the Mercy Ship Anastasis, I departed the ship June 2005 while the ship was in Monrovia, Liberia (my 16th outreach in Africa.) The World Food Program flight service agreed free passage to Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa. Sierra Leone is the country just north of Liberia.
The Lord had been impressing upon my heart (ever since we began ministry in Sierra Leone in 2001) to begin a ‘house church’ ministry. A house church ministry would look much like the book of Acts church where Paul and other disciples went from house to house bringing the Good News to all who would listen.
I rented a three bedroom house with a garden, room for farm animals and out buildings to house a generator, storage shed, shower house and latrine. I have a local family who lived with me and helped me understand how to live in this African culture and who has a vision for the ‘house church’ ministry.
We ran a four week facilitator training course where four local participants comes to live with us in community with five hours of lectures. Each day we have two hours of work duties, one hour of study, two hours of apprenticeship, one hour of food preparation/clean up, two hours of devotions and prayer. In addition each weekend we have Bible School, Children’s Ministry and mentoring. These participants then receive a certificate of completion and return to their normal lives and begin to develop “house churches” in the sphere of influence each has.
Approximately every six weeks we have an all day Celebration Service with a gathering of all the ‘house churches’. In October (2006) one hundred and thirty five people attended the service with praise, worship, testimonies, prayer/ministry, messages, singing and dancing as well as a shared meat. In January the number of people increased to four hundred and fifty participating from the various ‘house churches.’ (At the end of the year, 2015, six hundred people participated.)
̶We deal with mosquitoes, witchcraft and religious spirits. We need people who will commit to a time of fervent praying for Hope of Glory Ministry that through those prayers we will overcome all obstacles.
̶Volunteers are need to come and work alongside in direct ministry. We invite those who would come and work developing houses of prayer and healing rooms. We invite teams to come and work in the areas of agriculture, construction, electrical, plumbing and maintenance. Perhaps your team could help with the building of a dormitory, a pig pen with a fenced in area and a chicken coop. There is always the opportunity for teams to commit to raising monies for supplies. The need is great for volunteers and we ask that you ask God what He would have you do….and pray. Contact us Today!
̶We need monthly support so that we might have a good base to budget from. We feed twenty five or more everyday, give out Bibles, incur transportation costs, schooling and completion of buildings. If you would like to partner with the Lord and us consider making a donation today. Your help is needed and greatly appreciated. You can donate here via PayPal, or mail your contribution to Sharon Burns, P.O. Box 150843, Lakewood, CO 80215.
May God richly bless you!
The Ministry was handed over to the local leaders in Hope of Glory Ministry, in October, 2014.
Twenty Chapters representing each of the facets of the Ministry, now have a designated
coordinator, a governing Council of the ten key leaders. They meet, pray and plan
together as the Lord guides them in the fulfillment of the VISION until Jesus comes.
Hope of Glory Ministry International became known as an indigenous ministry at that
time. Peggy Cummings, Founder-
Each time you visit us we ask that you pray for Hope of Glory Ministry. Pray that God will supply not only workers but the finances that we may flourish in His work. Like all missions, funds are a great challenge. Would you consider being one of our faithful partners? Donations small or large are needed. Pray and consider becoming a monthly partner.
Pray for the People of Sierra Leone
The Harvest is Great!
We thank God for His many blessings and for future blessings we know He has in store for Hope of Glory Ministry. Learn all that is happening through this ministry and discover the exciting ways God demonstrates His Love. Will you join us and commit to praying for special needs as they are presented? The need for workers and finances is ever so great.
Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Luke 10:2
