Prayer Evangelism and Equipping

Operation Hope Appeal for Kenya, Africa

Many in the developing world are in lockdown with no support or food to eat. The situation is absolutely desperate and getting worse.

It is my aim to raise as many thousands as possible and do all that we can to feed as many as possible. We have built up strong relationships over years with Bishop Raphael (Kakamega County, Kenya) and I can personally say that he is one of the most trustworthy people I have met. I do much of my mission planning with him. more >>

Kenya 21 - You could be coming!

In August 2021 we are going back. This time the team will be bigger. Personally for the first time I am taking my daughters Faith and Grace.

You or someone God lays on your heart could be coming too.

We will be away for two weeks, dividing the time between Eldoret and Kakamega. We will see gospel outreach, conferences and helping the poorest of the poor. There will also be a short time to relax and take in the beauty of Kenya. more >>

About us

Operation Hope is the ministry of Stephen and Lisa Pilkington

They have both been in ministry since 2007, Stephen graduated from Mission Bible School with a BA Hons in Theology and Missions. They have pastored churches, planted churches, hosted evangelistic and prayer based events around the country. They have been used in many other countries around the world in missions, leading thousands of souls to Christ, seeing countless miracles and healings as well as being privaliged to have set up an orphanage in Kenya. They are currently based in North Wales and are active in the region, believing God is about to move in a wonderful way.

Steve and Lisa firmly believe that all fruitful ministry should start with prayer, and is empowered by a lifestyle of prayer. Since 2008 they have been involved in and running Houses of Prayer everywhere, or Hope as it is known. Rather than making plans and asking God to bless them, it is their practice to seek God first, align with His plans and prayerfully partner with Him. Operation Hope is simply the outworking of all that God has commissioned them to do while in the House of Prayer.

Please take time to look through the different pages and see some of the activities they are currently involved in. God has been gracious to give Operation Hope all that is needed to bring tent missions and concentrated evangelistic events to your community here in the UK. Check the pages and contact us for more information. Stephen is available to visit churches to preach, inspire or offer strategic Kingdom training.
