RELEASE: Hope Media Group Announces New Leadership

HOUSTON, Texas (May 31, 2022) –After recently joining forces with WAY Media, Hope Media Group, a faith-based media organization headquartered in Houston, has promoted several leaders within the merged entity. “We are blessed with an incredible leadership team to...

Our Core Values

Hungry

We are committed to contribute in any way we can, showing a strong work ethic as well as teachability, recognizing we can always grow and learn more. This means we are not complacent or proud but driven and committed. We care about ministry results and feel our mission at the very core of our being.

Romans 12:11, “Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.” Fervent means having or displaying a passionate intensity”

Others-oriented

We recognize it is about God and others, in that order. We are helpful team players knowing that your success equates to ministry success and my success. Being others-oriented, we are compelled to be good stewards of the ministry, the resources provided by its donors, and each other’s time. We embody a servant’s heart, reflecting what Christ shared with his disciples when he described how leaders typically lord their authority over others and said,

“…not so with you. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:26-28)

Positive

We see the glass as “half full”. This shows to all others a pervasive spirit of joy and lightheartedness, absent of cynicism, negativity, and drama. Positive people have a can-do attitude. We seek to brighten and lighten any room we walk into and believe wholeheartedly that, with God, all things are possible.

Philippians 4:8, “Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”

Engaged

We are fully involved with our cause and our team. The opposite of love is not hate, but apathy. Therefore, loving and caring – and being engaged – means we love God, love people and love the ministry’s God-given vision. Others can quickly see how we involve ourselves with the people and work around us as we find ways to encourage each other. This core virtue of being engaged is perfectly described in greater detail in Colossians 3:1-17.

“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” (Colossians 3:14)
