Rev. Stephen Hogge
Rev. Stephen Hogge arrived at Hands on Missions as the director in January 2019. His passion for the mission field is best expressed through his ongoing involvement in the Great Commission and our Lord’s calling. “I firmly believe that mission involvement is the catalyst to growth within the local church”. Stephen has been actively involved in world-wide missions since 1991 and led many teams to share the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
His journey of faith began as a young man growing up in the Tidewater area of Virginia. There, while attending vacation bible school, the Lord convicted Stephen of his sinful condition. “At that moment I realized that repentance was necessary in order for me to receive God’s gift of salvation through the person of our Lord Jesus Christ”. Shortly after his salvation, Stephen developed a discipline to study God’s word through the AWANA program. This scripture memorization program equipped Stephen to treasure God’s word into his heart. Now, God has opened the opportunity for Stephen to organize short term mission trips through the Hands On Missions ministry.
Stephen is married to Pam (35 years), they have two daughters and four grandchildren. “We have recently settled in the Shelby area and seek to develop relationships which have eternal significance”. Please use the information below to connect with Stephen. “Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ” (Galatians 1:3).
This is my second summer interning with Hands on Missions. My passion is to make the Gospel of Jesus Christ known worldwide. I am currently a student at Liberty University, majoring in International Relations; Politics and Policy with a double minor in Linguistics and Chinese. My dream is to one day be a missionary to the unreached, but for now I do not wish to neglect sharing the Gospel message in my hometown of Shelby, particularly through Hands on Missions.
