A Day On The Operation Hope Tent Mission Team

This was the first day of our first tent mission in Eldoret. After setting up in the morning, we went house to house giving the gospel, praying for the sick and inviting people to the meetings.

Operation Hope - Our Vision for Africa

God has told Operation Hope to buy a big tent, the one pictured in fact. A tent that could hold 3000 people and more with the walls removed. It is to be taken to Africa and kept in a base in Eldoret Kenya.

Then the team will take the tent throughout Africa preaching the Gospel, establishing the church and discipling the body of Christ. The Weather although hot in Kenya is often rainy and has been a hindrance to the open-air work in the past. A tent will be like a magnet to the lost drawing people from miles around... 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.
