One Hope is a ministry that networks Eugene/Springfield ministry leaders and churches for practical service projects and events that unify the body of Christ and expresses His love to our community. Project Hope is a 2-day event in late August focused on serving the public schools of Eugene and Springfield. Various teams of Christians from many different churches will work together on Saturday to clean up area schools. Then on Sunday, we meet at PK Park to distribute backpacks full of school supplies and clothing to disadvantaged families in the community. Haircuts, face-painting, games for kids and food add to the festivities on Sunday. Project Hope offers multiple opportunities to serve, including donating money to pay for the school supplies, organizing and distributing the supplies, and serving at the event in the many ways they need support.

Global Outreach: Lee & Lisa Schabel - Santiago, Chile (Year-Round)
CitySalt supports Lee and Lisa Schnabel's work in CDE training in Latin America.
Lee and Lisa Schnabel have been Foursquare missionaries to Latin America for over twenty years. They have served in Guatemala, Panama, Colombia and Chile. During their seven-year experience in Chile, they developed a training system for pastors called, Christian Dialogue Education (CDE). For developing a CDE training application in church planting, Fuller Seminary awardedLee with the 2015 Donald McGavran Award for church growth. The CDE training strategy relies on discovery, dialogue and Spirit-driven revelation to guide participants through an interactive time of study and discussion in small groups.
This system in its secular form, finds wide acceptance in training environments around the world. Jane Vella, founder of Global Learning Partners, developed dialogue education (DE) for public health in Tanzania. Now based in Eugene, Lee and Lisa have been invited to work in multiple countries in Latin America to develop in-service training programs for pastors using their field-tested CDE system. With 5000 Foursquare Spanish-speaking pastors in Latin America, the need for equipping leaders with state-of-the-art skills and knowledge for effective ministry grows daily.
Lee and Lisa have three grown sons, Kurt, Stefan and Hans who are all married. Their first grandson, Asher was born in March. They like to go biking along with hanging out around friends and family.

The cost of each well is approximately $9,000 and each Christmas season we participate along with East Hill Foursquare Church in Gresham in an “Advent Conspiracy”, whereby we raise funds to give the gift of fresh water to villages in Nigeria. This project brings fresh water at no cost to villages in need, while at the same time bringing a message of hope in Christ. Click HERE for more information. Make an online donation today!
