Mango Languages is an online language learning program that teaches practical conversation and cultural awareness. It uses a methodology called Intuitive Language Construction which "increases what you learn, AND your ability to use it. Each lesson covers all four key-language components - Vocabulary, Pronunciation, Grammar and Culture - while maximizing comprehension and retention. A working knowledge of each component, and the ability to combine them correctly, is crucial to being understood and accepted by native speakers." Learn more on their website

Teaching Pastor
Central Christian Church
Mesa, AZ

"At Hope, I received Biblical training from passionate leaders that care about what they are teaching and the people they are teaching it to. The professors have shaped my ministry in numerous practical ways because they are doing ministry themselves. Their influence continues to show itself through how I now interpret and use Scripture in my personal life and in teaching God’s Word each week. If you want to get serious about following after Jesus Christ, Hope will give you an education that will push you to bring healing to a broken world with a relevant message.”

Student Ministries Pastor
Pantano Christian Church
Tucson, AZ

"The graduate ministry program has been a great fit for me in my current position as the Student Ministries Pastor at my church in Arizona. Between the block program and online courses, I can take the classes I need and ensure that I get plenty of time with my two young sons. I really appreciate Hope's standard of a balanced education between Scriptural, professional, and personal development. The flexibility in the program allows me to take classes that not only will help me in the future, but in my current ministry as well."

Placement Services Manager
Food for the Hungry

"The HIU International Development MBA gave me better tools for daily management challenges and problem-solving. I didn't have to wait until I finished the degree – I used some of my class projects to make positive changes in teams I worked with at my NGO and at my church. I learned so much not just from the highly experienced faculty but also from my fellow students, who came from all over the world and from many different professional backgrounds."
