Hope in the Gate is Moving Forward

No doubt you have seen the first video Citygate Network did at Amy Grant’s Hidden Trace Farm. It is still having a lot of impact as many people are continuing to show it to friends and churches are using it to explain what rescue missions and similar ministries are doing every day. (If you haven’t seen it, you can watch it here.)

But this initiative is just getting started. We’ve now run two retreats—the first for Nashville Rescue Mission (NRM) and the second for Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM). Three more are planned this year, plus a festival at the farm. And we are excited to announce that we will soon be taking this on the road. Watch this new video in which Glenn Cranfield from NRM and Burt Rosen from KARM talk about our Hope in the Gate retreats and why they are fully behind this initiative. There is even an opportunity for you to engage at the end.

NOTE: Even as you read this, a third video is in production that explains why these retreats are so dynamic, and this one will focus on several of the songs that were written about the participants. It will debut in San Antonio at our Annual Conference and Exposition.
