House of Hope Construction Is Underway

Dear Friends And Family

 The House of Hope will provide ministry and a safe place for girls caught in the horrors of sex trafficking. These girls will be referred by law enforcement, schools, and other community outreach partnerships. Crisis Aid International will manage and staff the House of Hope, and it will be located right here on the ResLife property.

A 2nd CAPP office in Ottawa County and plans for one in Kent County have begun. The House of Hope will also be a tremendous blessing in our community.

Jeanie and I cannot Thank You enough for your unconditional love and support. You are the ministry and without you we would have nothing. We thank and praise God for you and your family. He is going to multiply the seeds you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness.

In Jesus name,
Pastor Duane & Jeanie

    Global Missions


    We partner locally and globally with other ministries. Last year we gave over $2,500,000 to send the gospel all around the world!



    The Children’s Anti-Exploitation Partnership (CAP) Program here in West Michigan is located inside the Wyoming Police Department. This program helps police officers connect children and teens identified with at risk behavior and their families to a CAP advocate for counseling and mentorship. ResLife funds this program through Crisis Aid International to manage and staff it to the highest capability. This is a tremendous blessing in our community!

    House Of Hope

    With the ground breaking recently, construction began on the safe house to minister to young women and teens rescued out of sex trafficking. These girls are referred by police or FBI. Crisis Aid International will manage and staff the home, and it will be located right here on the ResLife property!  We have raised 4.5 million of the  $8,000,000 project. We will be able to share the Gospel with these girls, and their lives are going to be changed!
