Hope D. Blackwell is called
and anointed by God to reach the lost and equip the believer for victorious and
purposeful living. She accepted her call to Christian service in 1996. After years of prayer, teaching, and training, in October 2003 she birthed the vision of Back to the Garden Ministries, Inc. a global para-church ministry, which shares
the gospel message of Jesus Christ, while empowering people to become
spiritually, emotionally, and socially stable and productive members of their
Hope is also the author of five
books; The Back to the Garden Purpose Series (The Man, The Woman, & The

in 2008 and used for Evangelism training in local and global churches, and most
recently, The Purposed Woman, Transformational Truths for Purposeful Living,

In December 2013 Hope launched the
ministry's global internet radio station, Wisdom Speaks Radio, which reaches
people globally around the clock with quality Christian teaching, special programs and music,
prayer and the call to salvation. The mandate of the station is found in Proverbs 8:1-11, with a mission to cry out with the voice of wisdom and truth from the high places and at the modern day "gates of the city".
Since 2007 Hope has traveled to
countries in Africa, Asia, and Europe doing the work of missions and
evangelism, serving women, and assisting Pastors and Christian leaders in
poverty stricken and remote areas in advancing the kingdom of God. In July of
2014 she was invited to minister on KTN (Kenya Television Network) which
reaches over 7,000,000 viewers, as well as repeatedly as a special guest on HOPE FM and TRUTH FM, two of East
Africa’s most popular Christian radio stations.
Hope's unique testimony of
deliverance and healing from many strongholds from her youth, is evidence of the power of
Jesus Christ to save, heal, and transform everyone who believes, desires, and responds to His call. Hope's greatest desire is for people to experience
the unconditional love of God through believers and be drawn into an intimate
relationship with Jesus Christ, where they are delivered and grow up into
healthy and victorious disciples until His glorious return.
One of Hope's treasured scriptures is found in the final replies of Job after His deeper understanding of God's awesome and divine orchestration of his life:
Then Job replied to the Lord: “I know that you can do everything, and that no purpose of yours can be withheld from you… Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. Listen please, and let me speak… I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes” (Job 42: 1-6 NKJV)

For if I [merely] preach the Gospel, that gives me no reason to boast, for I feel compelled of necessity to do it. Woe is me if I do not preach the glad tidings (the Gospel)! For if I do this work of my own free will, then I have my pay (my reward); but if it is not of my own will, but is done reluctantly and under compulsion, I am [still] entrusted with a [sacred] trusteeship and commission. What then is the [actual] reward that I get? Just this: that in my preaching the good news (the Gospel), I may offer it [absolutely] free of expense [to anybody], not taking advantage of my rights and privileges [as a preacher] of the Gospel (I Co.9:16-18 Amplified).
