Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Ministries that operate in silos and focus on their specific lane of ministry miss out on the collaborative results that can be achieved by bringing ministries together to impact the Kingdom. Separation and isolation increase costs and minimize the efficiency and overall impact of individual ministerial efforts.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Hope Center is a one-of-a-kind 50(c)3 Christian nonprofit center that leases office space to over 60 Christian nonprofits. Funded through donations, The Hope Center offers these ministries significantly less than market rate rent, free event space, and many other accommodations in a servant-minded culture. Our efficiency, growth methodologies, and collaborative culture multiply the Kingdoms impact around the world. By resourcing Christian nonprofits to reach their full potential, more people in more places are being transformed by the hope of the gospel.

To achieve these goals, The Hope Center must first be creative with space in their 185,000 square foot building. THC is frequently remodeling and adjusting office suites to open up more space for more nonprofits to lease. In addition, tenants are encouraged to evaluate their unused space so that they can sublease to nonprofits on the wait list. Currently, there are over 25 ministries on the waitlist. In addition to these efforts, THC is always sharing with others about the possibility of a second Hope Center in the U.S.

The Hope Center has been blessed with excellent capabilities to achieve their goals. These include a professional staff with a Property Manager and Building Engineer, a Board of Reference and an active Board of Directors. In addition, THC also has a partnership with Holt Lunsford Commercial, a leading commercial real estate provider in the DFW area.
The significantly reduced market rate rent that THC receives from its tenants covers the basic costs of the building but not necessary upkeep and improvement costs such as security and IT upgrades. Because of this, The Hope Center must continue to grow the number of donors, both major and new donors.
The Hope Center also rents out its event space to external Christian organizations, providing another source of income and an avenue to maintain relationships with outside nonprofits.

Over the last 15 years, The Hope Center has accomplished many things, including being a host site for National Day of Prayer for the last 7 years, creating a nonprofit job board platform called THC JobLink, and remodeling to transform common space into rental space. In the future, THC hopes to repurpose space for Admin offices so that growing nonprofits can expand, reduce the amount of time that nonprofits spend on the waitlist, eliminate security risks, and keep donations high enough to continue offering a significantly reduced market rate rent.
1. Provided opportunities for learning, collaboration, and cost savings to Christian-based ministries inside and outside of The Hope Center by providing tenants with significantly discounted rent rates, hosting speakers and educational events, and offering shared resources and a synergistic environment. 2. Maintained full facility capacity with a waiting list of 30+ ministries. 3. Successfully served ministries, resulting in survey ratings of "Excellent" or "Above Average" for 97% of participants for Campus and Billing, 99% of participants for Guest Services, and 92% of participants for property management.
