This model is a a perfect fit for the Philippines, the 13th most populated country in the world with 108 million people, where the average person earns $6.50 per day.
Sadly, 25 million people make less than $0.75 per day.
Government resources are stretched too thin. Economic development isn’t keeping pace with growing needs. People are yearning for spiritual nourishment.
All of these problems seem unrelated to the casual observer, but we think they’re connected, and God is using us to step into the breach to do something about it.
The founding couple of Reignite Hope have been married 29 years. Since becoming Christians in 1992, they knew one day they would serve abroad. Gary’s business and leadership experience and Cindy’s talent for mentoring have equipped them for this unique calling. Even though their work is only beginning, with God’s help and a talented team in the Philippines, their work has already been fruitful beyond their expectations.
Equip individuals with sustainable life skills training to help transform families and communities in programs that are firmly rooted by the good news of the Gospel.
Current activities are centered around our main facility in the city of Cebu. From our presence in the city center, we’re able to reach out into the community to serve various needs.

Stop the cycle of poverty.
Instill confidence to pursue their callings.
Lead with Kingdom Values
Our ministry is modeled after Acts 18, where Paul inspires us to use our talents and skills to cultivate relationships, promote healthy lifestyles, and restore broken communities in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Paul used his vocational skills to support himself and to be a blessing to the community. Therefore, whether you’re preaching the gospel or working to earn money, both serve as a witness and ministry for the Lord.
