Our vision is to accomplish the following: (1) Provide Transitional  and Crisis Coaching to individuals. (2) Assist in developing Transformational Leaders.


Put simply, HOPE Initiative is executing a two-phase strategy:

(1) 5R Circle Process Coaching & Workshops. (2) Salt & Light Conferences. 

Dr. Jonathan C. Carey serves as  EQUIP's Regional Director for Salt & Light - Caribbean English speaking countries.

Dr. Eddie  Rivero serves as EQUIP's Regional Director for Salt & Light - Caribbean Spanish speaking countries.


Our efforts center around:

Developing and maintaining meaningful partnerships with Kingdom Minded Organizations.

Strategy begins with The 5R Circle Process Weekend. Leaders and teams will be facilitated through the process and emerge with a vision blueprint. Learn More...  


We also provide ongoing partnerships designed to help pastors, leaders and individuals produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. See below.



"Using powerful biblical references and practical illustrations of the process that leads to vision building, Rev. Carey provides for his readers a good guide for a meaningful achievement in life. Not only does he present the positive opportunities that vision building presents, he also speaks to the challenges that those seeking to do so must encounter and provides wisdom for overcoming those challenges.

This work will be useful to leaders in all kinds of organizations, be they church, business, school, or government. It will also be helpful for those simply seeking to gain a clearer focus in life. I recommend it to readers as a useful work by a truly gifted and insightful teacher.”

Then & Now

In 1996 John Maxwell and his brother Larry, along with several Christian friends, launched EQUIP with a God-given vision to see effective leaders fulfilling the Great Commission in every nation.  As a result, in less than 20 years over six million leaders were trained in every nation.

Having laid a foundation of Biblical servant leadership worldwide, EQUIP is now focused on the Salt & Light Global Initiative, a strategy to equip and mobilize believers to reach unchurched people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
