About Restoring the Hope Ministries

Who We Are

Restoring the Hope is the teaching ministry of Dr. Everton A. Ennis. Our work includes biblical social action engagement, spiritual discipleship, and soul winning evangelism ministry that is passionate about helping as many people as we can in our community to discover or be restored in the transforming power of Christ-centered faith. We promote hope in the Word of God, hope in God's love for all mankind, hope in the restorative grace of God, and hope in the promised return of Jesus Christ.

We are a community empowerment ministry that strives to lift up Jesus Christ as the only real hope in a world that is spiraling more and more out of control. We believe that God restores broken people who trust in Him, and that one day soon, when Christ comes again... He will restore all things, making new heavens and a new earth "wherein righteousness dwells."

Until then, we are committed to the physical, emotional, social, financial, and spiritual development of His children. We are excited about witnessing to God's love and sharing Christ's message of hope.

Our Method


We recognize that many have lost their faith in both God and man. Too many have been disappointed even by the church. We understand the hurt, the pain, the lack of trust, the brokenness.

Our approach to sharing hope is multifaceted and effective. Everything centers on Jesus Christ. We labor to enrich people's lives and restore hope in their hearts by simply following Christ's method for restoring hope among the people when He walked the dusty streets of Palestine:

  1. He showed them authentic friendship
  2. He showed them sympathy instead of condemnation
  3. He ministered to their needs
  4. He earned their confidence through genuine kindness
  5. He invited them to follow Him and be His disciples
