Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior,

and my hope is in you all day long.   

Psalm 25:5 


Our Mission:

Nou Hope is embracing the hope of Christ in the communities of LaMare and Terre-Salei as we love, learn, and work together.

Our Vision:

Nou Hope exists to see the kingdom of God realized in the communities in which we partner--where being the hands and feet of Jesus brings the community to a place where justice, love, faithfulness, and service abound.


How our mission and vision are lived out:

We aim to empower the people of LaMare and Terre-Salei to become more self-sustaining so that families can afford basic education and daily living expenses. One of the most important aspects of our partnership is building relationships with our Haitian partners, engaging in discipleship.

Nou Hope serves as the umbrella for the partnership between stateside churches and those in Haiti.  Nou is a Haitian Creole word that means “we” or “you” (plural). With its double meaning, pronounced as “New” Hope in English, it describes the new direction and hope for a sustainable future for our Haitian partners.  

Nou Hope is a Foreign Mission Society affiliated with Evangelical Covenant Church of Lafayette, IN. Evangelical Covenant Church of Lafayette, IN and Trinity Church of Indianapolis, IN serve as partners to the churches and schools of LaMare and Terre-Salei, in Haiti. Working with community leaders, three areas of focus are addressed: spiritual formation, education, and development.
