Open Arms International Ministries (OAIM) was built on the foundation of the Holy Bible and the Great Commission, which Jesus gave to all those who profess to be His followers.

In July 2022, Jeff and Tonya Hoglen relocated to the Philippines for full-time missions. The mission is to reach those who are far from Jesus, make disciples, and plant churches.

Here’s a glimpse of the work your support can ignite:

1) The birth of RockFish Church – Philippines: A beacon of faith and community.

2) Leadership and guidance to the DOVE Network of Churches: Encouraging and strengthening a network of churches that plant churches.

3) Empowering pastors: Training dedicated leaders to create dynamic, life-giving churches.

4) Weekly Outreach Initiatives: Feeding programs, medical missions, and educational support in underserved areas.

5) Adonai Haven of Hope: Providing a safe, nurturing refuge for pregnant women facing challenging circumstances.

Your support can make a monumental difference.

Each contribution not only aids in sustaining these vital initiatives but also expands the horizon of what’s possible. If you feel moved to be a part of this transformative mission, we warmly invite you to click the ‘Donate’ button above.

Your generosity is not just a donation; it’s a partnership in spreading hope, faith, and love.
