Who we are?
Houston Hope of the Nations was established in 2009 by Rev. Eid Abdelmassih Hanna to help immigrants and refugees from the Middle East. The mission of the center is to help the Middle Eastern community adjust life in Houston. They do this by helping them to grow in their relationship with God, providing physical help, counseling, job search, ESL (English as Second Language) and Bible study. The Center helps people from several countries, including Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Sudan and Lebanon. Our weekly worship meetings include people from many nations.
What we do?
To accomplish this mission, the center has several activates which include the following programs:
– English as a second language
– Helping with the job search
– Providing furniture and food
– Hope International Fellowship on Sundays
– Home Bible study groups to those who are new believers
– Outreach events
– Building friendship with American churches.
