In a celebration filled with prayer, laughter, new shirts and cake, we were blessed to come together (virtually) with our entire Christ’s Hope team to praise the Lord for all he has done, and look forward to what he will do through this ministry! We had nearly all of our staff members, as well as a few board members, join our call from 14 different countries! We got to celebrate together and hear more about the branding, vision, and mission change for Christ’s Hope International.
While our logo is not completely different, as we still have our signature yellow flower, the handwriting font is meant to represent the ministry’s personality. Our values are translated into our visual identity which reflect the love of Jesus, sincerity, competence and excitement. The style and colors are meant to show the joy and nature that is experienced in Africa and the Light of Christ. The little yellow flower in our logo reminds us of our hope in Christ and the new life He freely gave to us after His death on the cross, and we rejoice whenever we see it! We pray when you see our logo, Christ’s Hope is not only read, but felt! We are thankful for Annet van de Berg of Montio, a volunteer at Christ’s Hope Netherlands, who graciously agreed to design this new branding style for us.
Just as our branding is new and improved, so are our vision and mission statements! After much prayer and evaluation, our new vision statement is “Transforming the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children in extreme poverty.” Our new mission statement is ”Empowering orphaned and vulnerable children to break the cycles of extreme poverty, AIDS, and spiritual brokenness through family-based care and discipleship in Jesus Christ.” We want to see a dramatic change in the lives of children living off of less than $1.90 per day with lack of access to education, health care, food stability, and clean water. We will do this by giving them the tools they need to go from “orphaned” or “vulnerable” to valued, chosen, loved, and redeemed in Christ Jesus!
