Sanctuary of Hope Groundbreaking on KSAT News
SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — On Sunday, John Hagee Ministries (JHM), a San Antonio-based international Christian ministry, broke ground on the Sanctuary of Hope (SOH), a state-of-the-art facility that will provide expectant mothers and their children a safe space from which to build a strong foundation for a fulfilling life.
SOH residents will receive on-site medical care, parental training, counseling, educational opportunities, and job placement assistance, among other services, free of charge. Building such a facility has been a lifelong dream for JHM founder Pastor John Hagee who spent time working at an orphanage during his formative years.
“As Christians we are mandated to help those in need. This facility will not save every mother and every child from poverty, but as my Jewish friends have taught me, if you save one life it is as if you saved an entire world. We are going to do what we can for everyone we can,” Hagee said.
“Actions speak louder the words, and I can think of no more impactful action than giving a leg up to those in need at such a critical point in their lives. I certainly believe people should pull themselves up by their bootstraps, but we cannot ignore those who cannot afford boots for themselves or their kids,” said Matt Hagee, Executive Pastor of Cornerstone Church.
John Hagee Ministries (JHM) is an international Christian Ministry led by Pastors John and Matt Hagee. John Hagee is the founder and senior pastor of Cornerstone Church, a non-denominational evangelical church with more than 22,000 active members. Matt Hagee serves as the Executive Pastor of Cornerstone Church and is the sixth generation in the Hagee family to carry the mantle of the Gospel to America and the nations of the world.
The Sanctuary of Hope will be a home for expectant mothers in need, which will provide them a real choice to bring their children into this world with the knowledge that they will have critical and comprehensive assistance in building healthy, loving and fulfilling lives.
