Hope Now


Mission Statement

"To extend the Kingdom of God by the application of the truths of Scripture to meet the spiritual, physical and social needs of people in its various fields of operation."

Overview of Ministry Activity

Hope Now was established in 1985 as a vehicle for the evangelist, Vic Jackopson, to engage in missions mainly in Europe. However, though he is still very active in this around the world, the organization has grown especially in the last five years to become a full-fledged missionary agency working mainly in Ukraine and South Africa.

Full and part-time national and international staff and volunteers engage in mission under the organization’s four departments: Evangelism/Church Planting, Children in Need, Health, and Prisons.

Current projects include:

  • Church building in both Ukraine and South Africa
  • Supporting nine state-run orphanages in Ukraine, two Rescue Shelters, and seven of its own cottage homes for homeless orphans
  • Building chapels and churches in Ukrainian prisons
  • Cleft lip and palate program and leukemia program
  • Building a sports complex in the Langa township of South Africa

HOPE NOW has been working in the Cherkassy Oblast of Ukraine for the past 10 years. Its ministry is best described by utilising the first letters of the words, Health, Orphans, Prisons and Evangelism. HOPE.
