A BIT ABOUT US
In 2008, God began to place in a young man a hunger to “See God move in such a way that everyone knows this move is a supernatural miracle.” No longer satisfied with a church status quo, Brandon Greene began a 7 year journey of fear, frustration, and ultimately, faith. Brandon would often say things like, “It has to be God. Nothing else will do.”, or “ I want to be used to show the world that God, in fact, still uses humble people and situations to show Himself Great.”. This God-given motivation is still the fuel that drives Hope Station to this today.
With empty hands, a vision, and a multitude of prayers for an opportunistic breakthrough, Brandon began to share with others what God had laid on his heart. In 2015, that breakthrough happened. Today, Hope Station continues to express great gratitude and respect to its predecessor, Sanctuary House, a non-profit organization designed to offer “A Hand Up, Not Just A Hand Out.”. As Sanctuary House came to a conclusion, God had already prepared the next runner to receive the baton. As you probably guessed it, that runner would be called Hope Station, “The Grand Central Station for Life Transformation”. February of 2015 marks the very first steps of this race of endurance and hope.
Hope Station’s ministry operates with a “Teach a man to fish…” philosophy. Homelessness is much more than a physical issue. Usually there are many factors surrounding a homeless condition. These factors are not resolved with a free meal or shirt, although those basic needs are very important. We offer opportunity for life change, and we walk alongside those who are ready to take that opportunity.
Hope Station’s plan is to become the tool for the Church and community to progressively address the many needs surrounding homeless ministry, such as transportation, job prep and placement, child care, drug and alcohol accountability, financial education and accountability, topping it all off with transitional housing. Brandon Greene often says, with much hope,” If the Church can work together and provide biblical welfare, that welfare will potentially work itself out of a job. Can you imagine that? No more welfare lines. Just an engaged Church and a community of contributing citizens.” Now that is the hope of Hope Station.
