Living Hope Haiti Christian Mission exists to witness the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Northern Haiti (St Michel de L'Attalaye area) through educational, medical, economic development, and a variety of related services.
Haiti is widely recognized as the poorest country in the entire Western Hemisphere.
Two of our members, Calvin and Becky Babcock, started with a calling to help the Haitian people over 14 years ago. Today, Living Hope Haiti now has 5 schools, 4 churches, an orphanage, a guest house, a medical clinic, a visiting surgical program, and a variety of other programs.
The Springs began in an office building in 1994 with only 21 people and now with three locations averages over 3,500 in weekly attendance. While leading a fast-growing church, Ron learned firsthand the value of mentoring & coaching. As a result, Ron started NEXT Churches, an organization that equips lead pastors nationwide. Ron and the NEXT team have coached hundreds of church planters & pastors to start & lead healthy churches. Ron also leads networks as one of the few certified in the well-known Tom Paterson Strategic Planning Process, using the process to help pastors think & act strategically in the local church. Ron is the author of Launching a Purpose Driven Church conference curriculum and authored his story and methods in the book, Starting New Churches on Purpose.
