Hope D. Blackwell is a woman of God called to serve His people while accurately and effectively sharing His Word, love, and sacrifice for mankind. She is the founder of Back to the Garden Ministries, Inc. an evangelistic ministry birthed in October 2003 to reach the lost and equip the believer for purposeful and victorious living through various community programs and services. In 2006 the ministry launched its global outreach and since has traveled to African and Asian countries doing evangelistic missions, empowering women, and equipping and encouraging Pastors and Christian leaders in advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ in remote and poverty stricken areas. In addition, Hope has published four books which include the Back to the Garden Purpose Series (The Man, The Woman, and The Marriage), and the 2012 release, The Purposed Woman, Transformational Truths for Purposeful Living.
Hope’s passion for God is fueled by her intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, prayer, and deliverance from the many strongholds that began in her life after being both saved and molested at age nine. Low self-worth, rape, promiscuity, teenage pregnancies, sexual and physical abuse, divorce, and depression are only a few of the struggles she faced for over a decade prior to surrendering her life and total self to the Lord Jesus Christ. At age 24 Hope finally embraced the fullness of God’s mercy, forgiveness, and love, as well as His enabling grace for the call upon her life. Nearly 20 years later she is regarded as a woman of integrity and strength, and is a unique and prophetic mouthpiece in this hour.
Above all, Hope is the passionate mother of four sons and a daughter, and the grandmother of two. Hope’s greatest prayer is that people will experience the unconditional love of God through believers and be drawn into an intimate relationship with Christ where they grow as healthy, holy, and mature examples of God’s daily mercies and enabling grace.
