Operation Living Hope collaborates with a team of professionals to help people through their individual crises. The process is through love and caring.
Crises are as diverse as the people who have them. The assurance however is that, “ No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” (1 Cor. 10:13
The objective is purpose, peace, and a foundation to build upon. Activities take place in prison, in the living conditions of the disadvantaged, and elsewhere out in the field.
We mentor, career counsel, life coach, and also give Hope Baskets to suffering families, children, and teens. . We operate on a grass roots level, and our team effort is to help those in serious crises get back on their feet, realize their purpose and potential, giving hope to a promising and a productive future. Because our way is love, friendship, counsel, guidance, and ultimately hope, the time and effort is often demanding and sometimes exhausting. However the reward of seeing a changed life is an amazing blessing.
"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;" 1 Peter 3: 15.

Serving & Helping North Minneapolis Community in Crisis
Thank You Pastor Lee
In North Minneapolis during CoViD 19 season, to the many with whom OLH partners in crisis, our plan is to deliver Baskets of Hope curbside and inspire people of broken families to employ principles of practical change.
This means emotional self-control, personal responsibility, forgiveness, reconciliation, and accountablility to the staff of OLH by means of phone. We document many true stories of transformed people
