  • mobilize followers of Christ to personally and effectively present God’s Word to every child and youth of the world.
  • collaborate and network with other organizations within the Kingdom of God.
  • encourage new believers to enter into fellowship with the local body of Christ, resulting in a life of discipleship.
  • lead followers of Christ in intercessory prayer for the children and youth of the world.


We believe these endeavors will result in…
  • children, youth, their families and communities coming to a saving knowledge of Christ.
  • the furtherance of Christ’s great commission to His church.
  • the building of the Kingdom of God in every community where we work.

Our story

Our ministry name, OneHope, reflects the desire to present the Living Word of God in an engaging way to children and youth all over the world. Jesus Christ is the one and only hope for eternity — and when we present Him to the next generation … lives are transformed.

OneHope began in 1987 when the nation of El Salvador asked for the Scriptures for every schoolchild in the nation. Today, by God’s grace, the ministry of OneHope has touched nearly 900 million young lives with God’s Word through our innovative Scripture engagement tools in print, film, web format and much more!

Since 2001, we have been serving the Japanese church with scripture engagement tools for children and youth. Our partners have reached over 1.5 million using OneHope products. These tools have been developed in Japan based on research and partner requests. It is our desire to work with ministry partners to provide products that are clear and relevant to Japanese youth and children today.
