Hope Through Everything At A Glance
“Hope Through Everything” exists to disciple and provide jobs to those who are committed to God, are going through the systems established at “Life Church Waco,” and who are below the poverty line and/or who once were incarcerated or living the “street life” and are now choosing life change. Hope Through Everything was birthed out of Life Church Waco which is truly a “church for the streets.” Founded by Pastor Gabriel Dominguez, who comes from a poverty and street background himself, the church is able to reach this demographic through its healthy systems that emphasize accountability.
As an extension of Life Church Waco, "Hope Through Everything" plans to continue the "Life Champions" discipleship program our "Hope Boyz" and "Hope Girlz" go through at the church where they complete a series of "Life Steps" and attend "Life Groups." "Hope Through Everything" is looking to build off the positive momentum generated throughout the "Life Champions" process to develop in our "Hope Boyz" and "Hope Girlz" good work ethic, conflict resolution skills, people skills, and a healthy outlook on finances.
Our goal is to create jobs where this population can learn how to show up consistently and on time, handle responsibility, and gain employable skills in a safe and loving environment. The people we plan to reach out to will come from Life Church Waco and, in addition, our community partners, “Safe House and Empowerment (SHE) is Freedom” and “Mission Waco.” (Learn more about our partners at sheisfreedom.org and missionwaco.org.)
We do not want to provide jobs to just anyone because they need a job, but rather because they truly want one. We have healthy accountability systems already in place to ensure everyone we accept into our program is there because they want to be. This is crucial so that we can sow seed on fertile ground where life change is possible because it will be unforced and organic.
Upon the establishment of Hope Through Everything, we envisioned a non-profit that gives as much to the community as it receives. We want to be givers, not takers, and we want to be as self-sustaining as possible while carrying out the mission of Jesus Christ in our community.
The core reason for our existence is to provide jobs and discipleship for those looking to improve their lives despite their struggles.
There are several branches of Hope Through Everything, including: Hope Through Concrete, Hope Through Threads, Hope Through Muzic, and Hope Through Lawn Care. Looking to the future, we plan to implement a Hope Through Finances branch and others that may inspire action as we move forward. Our Hope Girlz and Hope Boyz will go through an 18-month program wherein they will work for one of the branches and receive the support they require on a case-by-case basis. The Waco community has shown great interest in our vision. Many in McLennan County and beyond are willing to pour into these men and women going through our healthy accountability systems who are desperately seeking God’s love and a feeling of belonging.
