Missions @ the springs
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.
