Our Story

Lee & Peta Taberner

Lee & Peta's passion is to see the lost encounter the love of Jesus! To see the church equipped & activated, to see the Body of Christ so in love with Bridegroom & united with each other that they overflow His love to those around them.


Hope Ministries International (formerly the Tent of Hope) is an Evangelistic Ministry taking the gospel throughout Australia & beyond to stir up & unite the churches, to train & equip the saints & to present the gospel to the “unsaved”, through street ministry, outreaches, school visits, homeless programs, mission trips, fun days & crusades.


The two tents are pictured below...original peg & pole tent is 18m x 27m & the newer Clear-span marquee is 15m x 30m.


Traditionally, evangelical tent crusades are very ‘successful’ on their own as stand alone outreaches, but we prefer to work with the local churches & together touch your community, offering Hope through Jesus Christ.


We do take up offerings in public meetings as we operate completely on donations & partnerships- trusting & relying on our Heavenly Father for all our needs.

Statement of Faith

We believe that the Bible is God's Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our every day lives (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21).

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy (Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 43:10-11, Matthew 28:19, John 17:11, 1 John 4:16).

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives (Isaiah 59:2, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23).

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life (Isaiah 53:4-6, John 1:1-14, John 14:6, Colossians 2:13-15, 1 Corinthians 15:20).

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the 'new birth' we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives (John 3:3) (Acts 2:38) (Romans 10:9) (Ephesians 2:8-9) (1 John 1:9).

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us we need to be baptized in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues (Mark 16:16, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:4, Galatians 5:22-23).

We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer and the 'breaking of bread' (Matthew 16:17-19, Acts 2:42, 1 Corinthians 11:17-34).

We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live (John 4:23-24, Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:10).

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively (Joshua 1:8, Matthew 8:16-17, 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 3 John 2, 2 Corinthians 9:11).


We believe that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:36, John 5:28-29, 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9, Revelation 20:11-15).


We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised (John 14:1-3, Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
