Hope4Nations is composed of like-minded, field-tested, cross-cultural workers who share God’s heart for the nations.  With more than 50 combined years of ministry experience, living and doing ministry overseas & stateside, Hope4Nations is the natural result of the growth and merging of several ministries pursuing the growth of God’s Kingdom around the world.

Our Team

Mark & Michelle

H4N Co-Founders

Mark & Michelle Moore have been involved in ministry as a couple for more than 20 years. For 16 years, they have lived with their 4 children in the Middle East planting churches and equipping leaders to lead lives that transform nations. In 2020 they relocated back to the U.S. in order to more strategically engage, equip, and empower followers of Christ to pursue their purpose in advancing the Kingdom of God. They have hearts to see the culture of the Kingdom of God advanced throughout the world, especially in the nations of the Middle East and Central Asia.

Caleb & Lydia

H4N Co-Founders; Restorative & Listening Prayer; RaphaHouse

In the mid-’90s, Caleb and Lydia had a profound experience with the Gospel through a group of Christians that showed them the love of the Father.  This experience sent them on a journey from a life of drugs, alcohol, and self to pursuing disciple-making among the nations.  Along the way, they have learned much about the Father’s heart for them and the nations, and have continued to grow in God’s grace and healing.  Their desire is to bring others into a place where they can discover who they are in Christ and experience intimacy with God.  Through discipleship, training, and restorative prayer, they have been engaging countries in the Middle East, Central Asia, and Europe in some form (both short-term and long-term) since 1999.

Mehmet & Nihal

Lead Pastors - Ephesus , Turkey

Mehmet & Nihal both come from Muslim backgrounds. They were born and raised in traditional houses in Turkey. They met Jesus as teenagers at different times. They were married in 2003 and soon after went into full-time ministry. They have 3 children. They are Lead Pastors at New Covenant Church of Ephesus which is in the region of the ancient biblical city of Ephesus. They are responsible for teaching & equipping, Men’s & Women’s discipleship and Children’s Ministry.

Turkey has a population of 80 million people and at the most, 10,000 are Evangelical born-again believers. BUT, God is bringing revival to this land again. Mehmet & Nihal are excited about seeing lives transformed in a country that was home to the Gospel 2000 years ago.



Ministry Leader/Pastor - Ephesus , Turkey

Nese is the youngest of 5 children and grew up in a Muslim home.  In 1999, she met Jesus in an open vision and gave her life to follow Him and lead others to Him.  Since 2000, Neşe has served faithfully with various ministries in Turkey. In 2015, Neşe began serving as the co-leader of Hope4ME, a refugee ministry founded by Michelle Moore. For 6 years they have served the refugee community in their region through practical care and sharing the Gospel of the Kingdom.  She has lived in the city of Selçuk, also known as modern-day Ephesus, for the past 22 years. Last year, Neşe opened a new fellowship and community center called First Love Fellowship.  Neşe & her team have a small building for times of corporate fellowship, but continue visiting members in their homes, prayer walking daily through the town and helping to care for those that are shut-in due to age or illness.

Neşe has a heart to see the Kingdom of God advanced in her community and her nation through lives that have been transformed by the love of Jesus Christ.


D & H

Refugee Ministry/Pastors -  Middle East

D & H are Arabic speaking refugees that came to know the Lord through a miraculous encounter in 2015. They were so profoundly impacted by His presence that they immediately began to share about their encounter with other refugees.  Through their testimony, hard work and love for other refugees like themselves, many have been miraculously healed, set free and come to know Jesus! They have been meeting with these new followers of Christ in their homes and in their tents, wherever they can find them. They have recently rented a building as their community of believers among the refugees has grown exponentially.

D & H and their ministry to the refugees in the Middle East serve alongside H4N. It is our honor and blessing to serve them financially and provide pastoral care and oversight. They model the heart of Hope4Nations!


Lee & Meridith

Global Ministry Team - Middle East
God brought Lee & Mer together in 2013 with powerful words and visions about being a ministry team. After a year serving on different continents, God brought them back together and they were married in January 2015. Two days after the wedding, Lee joined Mer in the Middle East.
After a season of growing and pouring into their family here in the US, they are now preparing to return to the Middle East for the long term. Their hearts are to focus on the refugee population in their host country, with an emphasis on essentials, education and employment.



Global Ministry Team - Middle East
J & M serve in the Middle East engaging unreached Muslims through house church ministry, sports, and English conversation clubs. They are also connected with local believing refugees. When you partner with them by one time donation or by monthly partnership, you are giving Muslims who have never heard the gospel the chance to respond to the gospel.  


Global Ministry Team - Aegean
Chase serves in the Aegean Sea Region engaging with Greeks and refugees from multiple African, Middle Eastern, and Central Asian countries. His goal of making disciples begins with "hello" and building relationships with people. He shows God’s love in tangible ways. Intending to create an atmosphere where spiritual conversations can happen, Chase works with other believers to empower people to ask questions, to be equipped with the Gospel, and to go back into their communities to make disciples.

Favor – It’s Not What We Think It Is (Part 2)

June 13th, 2022

By Michelle Moore In the previous blog, we talked about what the favor of God is, what it looks and maybe feels like.  But, like everything in the Kingdom and in the Word, what has been said or discussed is never complete because the Word is alive and active; because we go from revelation to revelation…
