Around the world, more than 1 in 4 people live on less than $3.10 a day, limiting their access to necessities like food, shelter, and clean water. A similar number are disconnected from financial services—without a way to invest in a small business or a secure place to save money for their families.
In response to these challenges, HOPE International is leading with both (1) the Good News of God’s love and (2) financial tools to promote income-generating activities. Through discipleship, biblically based training, a safe place to save, and loans, we equip men and women around the world to invest in their dreams.
Join us as HOPE’s vice president of development, Chris Horst, shares how HOPE helps families flourish.
Chris Horst is the vice president of development at HOPE International, where he employs his passion for advancing initiatives at the intersection of faith and work. In addition to his role at HOPE, Chris spends an alarming percentage of his free time tending to his yard with all of the loving care normally afforded to newborn children. He and his wife, Alli, have three human children of whom they are even prouder than their lawn—Desmond, Abe, and June. As a dad to three kiddos, Chris has recently undergone a radical transformation from self-proclaimed foodie to a man who prepares far more trays of chicken nuggets than avocado toast. He wouldn’t change it.
Chris serves on the boards of the Denver Institute for Faith & Work and the Mile High WorkShop. He loves to write, having been published in The Denver Post and Christianity Today and co-authored Mission Drift, Entrepreneurship for Human Flourishing, and Rooting for Rivals with Peter Greer. Christianity Today, WORLD Magazine, and the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association named Mission Drift a book of the year in 2015. Chris was a very average student, but he did graduate with both a bachelor’s degree from Taylor University and an MBA from Bakke Graduate University.
