Your exclusive opportunity to build meaningful connections with communities living in extreme poverty and learn how to make a lasting impact in the lives of the extreme poor begins July 27.
Five great reasons to be a Radiant Ally:
Connection to a poor community
Knowing who you are helping and where your gifts are making an impact is an amazing blessing. You will be connected to an impoverished community to witness firsthand through videos and stories the transformation in people’s lives from extreme poverty to self-sufficiency.
Exchange prayer requests with your community members through Radiant’s Prayer Exchange and a special gift exchange will be offered every year after that.
Exclusive Facebook Group
Gain access to a members only, “Closed Group” Facebook group including Live sessions with C.H. Dyer and your new overseas friends and community, and have opportunities to get your questions answered.
Biblical Perspective on Poverty
By joining the Radiant Membership Program, every month you’ll be obeying and acting on scriptural principles and start receiving the blessings promised in Scripture when you give to the poor.
Your host, C.H. Dyer, has traveled to over 75 countries and run programs and projects across the globe.
“It’s a great way to connect and understand the issues and opportunities involved in meeting the needs of the extreme poor. And it’s the best way I’ve seen yet to connect on an individual level without jumping on a plane.”
Mike H., ILCurrent Radiant Member
“Radiant brings you up close and personal to the people in poverty you are helping. I experienced this firsthand with videos, Skype, and even being able to ask questions. Bright Hope has immense experience in this area.”
Trish R., AustraliaCurrent Radiant Member
“Radiant has reinforced to me how important it is to target our giving in a connected way. To be able to see and hear from these Christian leaders in Bolivia has been quite meaningful for our family.”
Brenda S., OHCurrent Radiant Member
A new type of community.
Radiant connects you personally to our partners in Bolivia. You’ll meet members of the community, share in their hopes and challenges, and exchange prayers. You’ll know them by name. You’ll see their innovative ministries. And you’ll see firsthand the impact you’re making in their daily lives.
Through Radiant we will be growing in each of the Five Indicators of Radiance:
1. Understanding of Poverty
We will be exploring, in depth, what works and what doesn’t work in helping communities rise out of extreme poverty. We will also learn how a holistic model of development improves our impact and what tactics hinder development as well as about economic development and the risks of focusing on handouts and relief aid.
2. Community Connection
We have chosen a community for you and your monthly contributions to impact. As part of this, a mutual transformation expert will introduce us to key church leaders, lay leaders and community members who are receiving the help and assistance Bright Hope has to offer. Each week for the first two months we will be hearing from our community host and be inspired by their lives and faithfulness to God.
3. Sharing of Our Talents
This is where Radiant is breaking barriers and plowing new ground. Our goal is to have one to two activities per year where you can employ your spiritual gifts, beyond the gift of giving. During the first two months, we have an activity planned as well as other surprises in store that will have us engaging with our community in poverty.
4. Celebrating Transformation
As we will soon discover, God will not only transform our community and the people living there during the months to come, but He will also transform our lives. We need to recognize the changes happening in both communities and celebrate by giving God the glory for His great work in their lives and ours.
5. Sharing Our Story
One of the best things we can do is share our stories of transformation with others. We will have a chance to do just that in the first eight weeks.
Meet Your Host
As President of Bright Hope, C.H. Dyer (Rev., MATS) has 25 years of experience in engaging, working with, and bringing Hope to communities caught in the despair of extreme poverty.
Inspired by church leaders and congregations located in the slums and rural villages across Africa, Asia and Latin America, C.H. believes “if only we can empower and train these fledgling churches to administer excellent programs that lift people out of poverty and give eternal Hope, millions more people can break the chains of generational poverty.”
Bright Hope is a trusted name in serving the poor.
