Hope Education Network™


A Vision of Hope for the Future

The vision of the Hope Education Network™ is to train and educate students to think, communicate, and solve human needs through faith-based Compassion Ministry. With a heart of God’s compassion, Convoy of Hope partners with like-minded organizations to help the impoverished, hungry, and hurting. The Hope Education Network empowers a new generation with the knowledge they need to deliver hope.

The Hope Education Network is a network of universities, seminaries, churches, and Christian organizations that train others through education, workshops, and the pooling of resources.

Hope Education Network will train and educate students or partners to think, communicate, and solve human needs through faith-based compassion ministry.

We will operate on three levels: Universities & Seminaries, Certificates, and Badges.

A Message from Our Director

At Convoy of Hope, we are passionate about raising up a generation of leaders who will deliver compassion in everything they do — believing God has called each of us to serve the hurting and treat each other with respect, dignity, and kindness.

Dr. Wayde Goodall
Executive Director

Our Approach

Our Approach

The Hope Education Network™ provides:

  • A well-rounded academic program ready to be merged with the university’s learning management system.

These courses can also provide the foundation for classroom-based instruction.
  • Online courses that can be offered in the university’s academic system supporting undergraduate, graduate, minor, concentrations, badges, and certificates.
  • Field mentoring in domestic and various global settings.
  • Summer and spring break ministry opportunities for university students.
