Hope House Ministry gary  teresa pierce web size - small

Hope House is a vibrant and active ministry to the children and youth of the Pascagoula and surrounding areas of Jackson County. We are a unique ministry and work to show the love of Jesus Christ to the hurting, needy and hopeless children in our community. Under the leadership of Gary & Teresa Pierce, Hope House operates solely as an independent, ministry with over 30 years of experience in Children and Bus Ministry. We operate with the help and assistance provided by concerned churches, businesses, and individuals through gifts of offerings, time, and most importantly, prayer.

Today, in this evergrowing field of ministry, new and demanding needs and requirements arise on a daily basis. The current and most demanding needs are of monthly budget support and a larger facility. God has been so very faithful to show his favor to this ministry. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our Lord and Savior in this ministry. It is truly an honor!
