Celebration of Hope Overview

Celebration of Hope

Celebration of Hope is Willow Creek’s annual global compassion campaign that seeks to bring awareness, engagement, and change through partnerships with churches across the world. Thank you for engaging your heart and mind in our world’s toughest issues—and playing a part in bringing all-encompassing hope to those in need of physical, emotional, and spiritual assistance.

Some highlights from COH 2017 include:

• More than one million seeds packs in one weekend! Over 19,000 volunteers linked arms to fill 1,039,000 seed packs that are sent to our partners in Africa. Click here to learn more.
