For Pastors

Receive Materials

After completing training, a My Hope America representative will contact you to send you one Matthew brochure for everyone who attends your church on a Sunday morning and Matthew resource kits for each Matthew volunteer in your church. If you haven’t heard from us, contact us here.

Recruit Volunteers

Using the brochures, host a Matthew Sunday to share your church’s vision for My Hope America and encourage every Christian in your congregation to follow Matthew’s example.

Train Volunteers

After Matthew Sunday, teach the content of the Matthew Resource Kit to each volunteer. Use the videos. Train at your own pace. The training will teach each Matthew Volunteer to practice the 5 looks with those they know.

Outreach and Follow Up

Encourage each Matthew to invite friends, family, & neighbors to their homes or other gathering places to watch the My Hope America programs. Involve each new believer in the life of your church so they can grow in Christ. Encourage your Matthews to use My Hope America resources in discipleship.



Involve Your Church

Talk to your church leaders about My Hope, and encourage them to attend a training meeting in person or online. Volunteer to be the My Hope contact point for your church. Contact us to let us know you are the point of contact for your church so we can send you materials.

Put Your Training into Action

Follow through with the 5 Looks you learned in Matthew Training. Identify your friends, neighbors, co-workers, fellow students, and family who do not know Jesus Christ as their Savior. Pray every day for each person you have identified and look for opportunities to build your relationship with these people.

Outreach and Follow Up

Follow Matthew’s example by inviting friends, family, and neighbors to your home or another gathering place to watch the My Hope America programs. Meet regularly with those who pray to receive Jesus Christ. Use the provided My Hope resources to study the Bible together. Teach them to walk daily with Jesus.
