Plano, Texas (Vocus) October 8, 2009
The Hope Center Foundation today announced that Need Him Ministries, Liberty Institute (formerly known as Free Market Foundation), and Hope For The Heart are among the first of nearly 40 distinct Christian ministries to occupy the new Hope Center campus located in Plano. The nine-acre campus serves to facilitate like-minded nonprofit ministries coming together to share resources and to participate in joint ministry ventures with the aim of more effectively furthering the cause of Christ all around the world. The Hope Center Foundation's ultimate goal is to create a setting that promotes synergy, financial stewardship, and global expansion among Christian nonprofit organizations.
Paul Nelson, former president of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability says, "Many people have talked about creating a community of partnering organizations before," he explains, "but it has truly become a reality at the Hope Center." When describing the structural design and size, Nelson says, "You have to see it to appreciate it." The 185,000-square-foot campus includes a chapel, conference center, atrium, café, bookstore, multiple broadcast studios, call center, fitness center, and postal facility for the ministry tenants. The conference rooms, integrated telephone system, fulfillment center, and shared server room are designed to minimize costs and increase opportunities for collaboration.
The Hope Center is located on the northeast corner of Plano Parkway and Custer Road, one block north of President George Bush Turnpike. The building resembles a mountain lodge and features walking paths and a prayer garden. From building materials to structural considerations, the Hope Center campus is designed for minimal environmental impact and meets LEED certified standards, all the while blending with the area's natural beauty.
About THE HOPE CENTER: Based in Plano, TX, The HOPE CENTER FOUNDATION was established to own and operate the nine-acre Hope Center multi-tenant campus.
