The exciting details of everything that is going on at Hope Rising will be shared at the fundraising Gala on October 20 at Sinclair Conference Center. It is an event that you won’t want to miss!

We have an incredible speaker lined up. With courageous inspiration, Steventhen Holland has been transformative as a national pro-life speaker and worship leader at a variety of events around the country for over twenty years. You will love his warm and compassionate speaking style and will be stirred by his personal testimony of foster care, adoption, and meeting his birth mom for the first time. His story points to the inherent value of ALL life and the need for Christians to bring hope to the broken and speak truth in love to the next generation.

Steventhen is an author, recording artist, youth leader, founder of Broken Not Dead Ministries, a husband, and a dad. His miraculous testimony will have you rejoicing at the goodness and power of God.

You are likely aware that November’s Ohio ballot will include a radical abortion amendment that would allow for unrestricted abortions up until birth and eliminate parental consent laws. We all must join together and fervently pray for this initiative to be defeated. Regardless of the outcome, Hope Rising’s mission will remain unchanged. Now, more than ever before, we need pro-life people like you who are willing to partner with us during this crucial time in our state – to rescue babies and protect women from an abortion decision.

Please consider your support for the 2023 Gala!  At Hope Rising, we are going on the offensive to turn the tide against Satan and his lies. Roe v. Wade has been reversed, and now we must work to reverse the damage of the culture on our youth and younger generations. We must keep fighting for the sake of the unborn and for the sake of our youth.

We’d love you to join us for this very special evening, or if you’re not able to attend, would you consider a financial gift to help us reach the $480,000 goal?
