Hope Villa

Hope Villa

A beautifully situated learning and lodging environment for students and guests to make the most of their experience.

Phase 1 coming in 2021!

From the Founder

In 2015, I shared with one person, for the sake of testimony, this six-year vision God provided for the future of Surprised by Hope. We’ve been walking toward this vision these many years, though you may not have realized it, and I believe we will step into the early phases of making this vision a reality this year.

Not the typical sterile classroom environment, Hope Villa (for lack of an official name) will serve as a training center in Malindi, Kenya where the School of Kingdom Business students will meet. Ministry workshops and seminars will take place here as will skills training and a variety of other ministry activities. Hope Villa will also serve as a lodging space for learners, short-term ministry teams, and outside guests.

  • Phase 1: Identify a partner. Pray with us as we do.
  • Phase 2: Begin hosting events on an as-needed basis.
  • Phase 3: Assume full responsibility.

Please join us in prayer as we step into the early stages of this big, scary, beautiful vision that only God can make a reality.


This space will be used to display how far we’ve come in reaching our goal of $5,000 monthly. Your gifts are immediately useful as we host programs on an as needed basis and build both ministry and financial capacity.
