Founders, Seyi Olagunju, and his wife, Ronke, are missionaries in America with Nation Worship Ministries and they also formerly served as campus pastors in southern California.
A decade ago, while in Northern California, the Lord put a heavy burden to reach unsaved young people by helping them discover that they have been created to worship God with their talents. Out of this burden God gave them a strategy to use a unique type of evangelistic rally to reach young people. God also gave them a diverse team of people from many ministries and churches to carry out this vision. In 2005, the first hip hope outreach took place in Antioch, CA USA in partnership with the help of some local churches. They saw many salvation's and transformations among the youth that attended. They partnered with a number of churches to carry-out this outreach in the United States and it became a big success. Recently the lord as also given them the grace to partner with ministries in Europe and Africa. Hip Hope International is a subsidiary of Nations Worship Ministries, which is affiliated with many other ministries. Over the years, Hip Hope International have continued to partner with many civic and christian organizations all around the world.
