The Radiant Experience is your exclusive opportunity to get an inside glimpse of the lives you’re helping transform in Bolivia and Uganda. We want you to feel like you know—really know—the people and projects you’re supporting.
Six great reasons to join the Radiant Experience:
Connection to a poor community
Knowing how you are making an impact is an amazing blessing. You will be connected to an impoverished community to witness firsthand the transformation in people’s lives from extreme poverty to self-sufficiency.
Exchange prayer requests with your community members through Radiant’s Prayer Exchange. Build a spiritual connection that transcends resources and geographic distance.
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
As you participate in the Radiant Experience, we’ll guide you to act 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.
The Five Indicators of Radiance
The Radiant Experience is filled with opportunities to grow in your understanding of poverty and your compassion for the poor. We’ve identified five “Indicators of Radiance” that we’ll help you pursue throughout your involvement in Radiant:
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, what tactics hinder development, and learn about economic development and the risks of focusing on handouts and relief aid.
2. Community Connection
Knowing where and who you are helping is a key part the Radiant Experience. To begin our journey an expert will introduce us to key church leaders, lay leaders and community members who are receiving the help you are giving. During the introduction material you 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. Special missions trips to visit our Radiant Communities are in the works too.
4. Celebrating Transformation
As you will soon see, while God is transforming the people we are helping, He will also be transforming 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 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.
