Project Radical Grace
(Hope for Life Thailand)

Project Radical Grace’s vision is to see lives transformed as people experience God and receive healing, as broken relationships are restored, and as the church understands and lives out the radical grace of God. It seeks to see this transformation in individuals and churches by building relationships, caring for life, strengthening new life in Christ, and providing places and spaces for learning. Current key areas of effort include:

  • Prevention initiatives for vulnerable young people, including the “Looking for Love” workshop series focused on exploring God’s design for identity, sexuality and relationships
  • Care and support for people living with HIV
  • Encouraging and equipping the church to respond to issues of brokenness (including HIV) within its communities.
