Partners in Ministry
This year SoulStock is partnering with three ministries to show love, mercy, and hope to people in need, close to home, as well as, far away.
Show Hope is a non-profit organization that mobilizes individuals and communities to meet the most pressing needs of orphans in distress
They meet these needs by providing 1) homes for waiting children through adoption aid grants, and 2) life-saving medical care for orphans with special needs.
Established in 2003 as Shaohannah’s Hope, Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife, Mary Beth initially founded Show Hope out of their desire to see more children find their way into forever families. Though many families they talked to were willing to adopt, the financial costs to adoption were simply too high.
Originally named after the Chapman’s first adopted daughter, Shaohannah Hope Chapman, Shaohannah’s Hope has grown far beyond the initial vision of helping a few orphans find homes. In 2009, after changing the name to Show Hope, this organization has seen an amazing explosion in growth. From a six-story caring facility in China, equipped to provide surgeries and medical care to special needs orphans, to multiplying the effects of the adoption grant program by assisting churches in setting up their own adoption funds, Show Hope continues to expand its remarkable worldwide impact.

Soles4Souls has a simple concept: we procure shoes and get them to those in need.
Soles4Souls collects new shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collects used shoes to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty. Soles4Souls’ other two divisions, Clothes4Souls and Hope4Souls provide the same relief and support through clothing and other necessities.
Soles4Souls receives large donations from footwear companies, retailers, churches, nonprofit ministries, civic groups, schools, and individuals and saw that this could become a full time organization. That’s why Soles4Souls was created – to facilitate the donations from these groups to the people who desperately need footwear.
Hands in Motion brings the music festival experience to people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
God’s leading in this ministry was evident from the start. Many interpreters have been recruited throughout the United States who are willing to volunteer their skills and time to reach the deaf community and co-minister with each festival. Focusing on Christian music, arts and personal Christian growth events, Hands in Motions goal is to make festival events fully accessible to the deaf community.
