The Beginning of Our Vision...

In July 2015, Shoal Creek Baptist sent 23 people to Uganda. They served alongside Pastor Nassan Ibrahim at Daystar Church. This trip was truly a game changer for Shoal Creek’s involvement in Missions.


After returning from Uganda, the call of God has been clear to provide a home, education, and love to the orphans in Uganda. Therefore, Shoal Creek Baptist Church is stepping out on faith to build a Southern Baptist Convention Direct ministry, which will be called House of Hope. We have purchased six acres of land. We continue to seek God’s leadership in raising funds for building phase one of the House of Hope, which includes the kitchen and chapel. Much prayer and details have led to this point.


As Christian singing group Avalon states in their song “Orphans of God,” we also want to be able to say, “Come ye unwanted and find affection; come all ye weary; come and lay down your head; come ye unworthy. You are my brother. …grace was made for lives like this.”


We want you to be a part of God’s Kingdom work in Uganda as well. This may be through prayer, sponsoring a child, allowing a speaker to share with your congregation information about the House of Hope, hosting an Orphan Sunday at your church, or being part of a mission team. However the Lord leads you, we invite you to partner with us.
