About Us

Thousand Hills is a ministry of Christ followers believing Christ is the answer and the church has God-given authority over peoples spiritual lives. Christ is the perfect example of caring for those in need, spiritually and physically. In truth, Christ demonstrated care and compassion to draw people to himself, restoring all things. We believe the tools and encouragement we provide church leaders are a part of bringing about restoration of ALL things.

It’s our mission to equip church leaders with tools and training to see people restored to being what God created them to be: people who understand that they are created in the image of God with gifts, abilities, and capacity to make decisions effecting Christlike change, people equipped to steward; their families and villages resources and relationships in order to bring Christ glory.

Matthew 13:23   “The seed that fell on good soil represents those who truly hear and understand God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!”

DIGNITY AND DESTINY – touching individuals directly

You’ve probably heard that giving a man a fish feeds him for a day, while teaching him to fish feeds him for a lifetime. But helping him farm feeds others, too. It changes communities, not just individuals.

Thousand Hills Ministry was founded in 2011 to support the life-changing efforts of Haitian Christians who believe God wants to bless their land and their people, through economic development and job creation.

By providing tools and training in agriculture, irrigation, and livestock care to church-based projects, we are helping demonstrate and declare the love of God to the people of Haiti.

Coming alongside local Christians as supporters and partners, we can help others in their community find hope and dignity as they are empowered to make a future for themselves.

Rather than creating dependency, we seek to call others to discover their destiny as co-laborers in God’s kingdom.
