We believe that God can do “immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20), and we call upon Him as a first course of action.
HOPE isn’t the only place our talents might be put to use, but we believe HOPE is our calling. We’re dedicated to the organization and its mission.
Jesus has called us to lives of service and humility. We’re constantly looking for ways to bless one another, our clients, and our supporters through service.
Our time, talents, and treasure are not our own. They have been entrusted to us for God’s service, and we give them back to Him daily.
It’s not enough to point out problems. We strive to find creative solutions and offer ideas and approaches that improve upon the status quo.
Our work brings us face to face with extreme poverty and the myriad obstacles to overcoming it, but in the face of opposition, we remain positive, encouraging, and hopeful.
We take care of one another, through both our formal policies and procedures and informal acts of kindness, generosity, and compassion.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
This guide will help you to understand where you are in the process and what to expect next.
We start each posting with prayer that God would prepare and lead the right person to this position and that we would make a wise choice.
A small group of relevant people connected to the open position is formed to discuss the needs and requirements.
The job description is posted, and we review all applicant resumes.
We review and screen candidates for skill, culture, and mission fit, and then invite them to an initial interview.
We will then pass along qualified candidates to the hiring manager for a second-round phone interview.
We will select several top candidates to bring in for face-to-face interviews.
At that point we will make a decision. Our process typically takes about 60-90 days, but of course varies depending on the role and candidate pool.
First, check out HOPE’s open positions. If there are any roles that could be a fit, please email your resume and cover letter (and any other documents requested) to email@example.com. This account is checked daily. Due to the volume of applications received, we are unable to answer individual phone calls or email requests for status updates.
We cannot accept hard-copy materials. Thank you!
After you email your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org (including any additional information requested in the job description), you will receive an email indicating that we have received your materials. You will be emailed again with any relevant information regarding your application. Due to the volume of applications received, we are unable to answer individual phone calls or email requests for status updates.
HOPE’s interview process is extremely collaborative. We begin by screening resumes. The next step is an initial phone interview with human resources. Candidates who move beyond the initial phone screen will interview over the phone again, this time with the hiring manager. There is sometimes a third phone screen with an executive team member, and finalists are brought to Lancaster to interview in person with the search committee. Our goal is to complete each hiring process within 120 days.
This process may vary a bit for international roles.
If you ask different people this question, you’ll get different responses. Some people love HOPE because they get to make an impact for the Lord while utilizing their gifts and abilities. Others love the culture. Often, people say their favorite thing about HOPE is that they get to pray and worship with colleagues. Many love to see the pride on clients’ faces when they are able to lift their families out of poverty. It varies, but everyone has long lists of things that bring them back to work each day!
There is no “typical” day at HOPE! Daily responsibilities will depend on your role, but there are some things that you can count on if you are a domestic staff member: staff prayer times on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays; staff devotions on Tuesdays; and staff meetings every other Thursday. These are times that domestic staff get together and intentionally study the Word, pray, celebrate, and hold one another accountable. We look forward to these times of building relationships with each other and with the Lord.
“We take our work really seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.” –Peter Greer, President & CEO
Our culture is something we’re really excited about. So excited that we have a whole section on this page dedicated to talking about it. Read our P.A.S.S.I.O.N. statement, manifesto, and statement of faith above.
The process varies across countries and programs. In many programs, HOPE relies on social collateral, lending to groups of people who cross-guarantee each other’s loans. As a result, members select others they believe will be able to repay. Loan officers provide training so clients are prepared to manage their loan, and they review a variety of factors in the approval process: business plans, amount requested, the current economic market, etc. In savings and credit associations, where members save their own money, the group decides if and when to loan to one another from their pooled savings.
HOPE provides loans to people in poverty regardless of race, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, or marital status. There is no financial benefit or preferential treatment associated with conversion to Christianity.
At HOPE, our efforts to love and serve the poor are rooted in our allegiance to our Lord and Savior and our desire to see His kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. Believing that true transformation can only come from a relationship with Jesus Christ, HOPE engages in culturally appropriate evangelism and discipleship in each of the countries in which we work. HOPE is committed to hiring Christian staff and equipping them to be disciple makers in their communities, and we seek to partner with local churches in each of our areas of operation to provide clients with ongoing discipleship and support.
For our domestic staff members, we share in times of prayer and devotions four days a week. Often, individual departments take that a step further. For example, the marketing team has time set aside each morning for personal reflection and time with the Lord. The administration team meets weekly for Bible study and prayer. These are just a few examples of how we encourage one another to grow in our relationships with God.
