What is Hip Hope?
Jesus is our hope-1 Tim. 1:1, 1 Peter 1:3. A lot of young people believe Christ is not relevant to their lives today, but it is important for them know that He is never "out of Style". "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever"-Hebrew 13:8. Jesus is relevant to youths today and they are to bring worship to HIM.

Biblical background of Hip Hope
Theologically, hip hope is about one the central nature of God, which is unity. In the Godhead there are three distinct persons-the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit yet they are one. That is why we believe that the unity of the body (churches/ministries) is one of the central themes of this Hip Hope outreach. Unity is very much in the heart of God, because it is central to who God is. In John 17:21 Christ prayed that His people would be one just as He is one with the Father. Without Unity (Unity is only produced through the spirit(prayer)-Ephesians4:1-4. Unity is not uniformity)) we can’t see transformation in the youths of our communities
Missiologically, hip-hope is about reaching young people so that they can become disciples that bring worship back to God through every aspect of their lives. The goal of fulfilling the great commission (Matthew 28:18-20) is so that God will receive worship from every tribe, tongue and nation-(Revelation 5:9-10, Revelation 15:4, Isaiah 61:11)
This organization is for un-churched, unsaved and nominal Christian youth and for the body of Christ to relevantly engage youth culture. The purpose of Hip Hope is help young people discover their talents, develop Godly character and helping them walk in their God-given destinies, so that they can bring worship back to God (Psalms 145:4, Psalm 146;10 ). We are created to worship. A lot of young people have talents and gifts given by God, which need to be used for him. Also when young people see other youth using their talents it encourages them to do the same. We are passionate about pointing young people to the fact that God has given them their talents and they have to use it for him (1 Peter 2:9-10). So, we use our Hip Hope Outreach(youth rallies & musical tours) and Hip Hope Institute. We also will provide discipleship resources and training for churches to disciple the youth coming through their churches (especially if they don't have pre-existing discipleship program/system). Ultimately we want to mobilize these young people to help others in their communities and the nations to bring worship to God.
