The Little School of Hope

The Little School of Hope meets Thursdays at 11am at the Little House of Hope & Prayer, 1328 Main Street in Sanford Maine. The first course, which is geared toward training those in attendance to go out and share the Gospel with people we meet is nearing completion. Students learned how to quickly find scriptures and give an answer to everyone that asks them for the hope that lies within them. At the conclusion of this course, we will be heading to the mall to put into practice what we’ve learned.

Our next course will be on the Making of a Christian Leader and will begin in the spring. If you are interested in enrolling, please let us know when you contact us. You can send an email to, call Pastor Wayne at 207-337-2296, or simply use the contact form on this website to reach out. We hope to be seeing you soon at the Little School of Hope

The Greatest Gift Music Ministry

The Greatest Gift Traveling Music Ministry

View Accomplishments              View Event Flyer

The Bible calls us as Christians to go out into the highways and bi-ways and compel the lost to come in. For this reason, the primary thrust of The Greatest Gift is to travel from place to place, spreading hope and encouragement through our music and message, and leading people to the Cross of Jesus Christ for salvation.

What we Provide:

  • Complete Service – The Greatest Gift will sing, and share brief testimonies and exhortations between songs, followed by a message by Pastor Wayne. When we minister at retirement communities, we have included communion in our worship services. Ask about this when you contact us, if you’d like us to do this.

  • A Selection of Songs for your worship service – We often participate in worship services, sometimes singing 3-5 songs, other times more. This depends on the needs of the individual venue.

What We Need

  • Love Offering: The Gospel of Jesus Christ is free, but it takes money to put gas in the vehicles, haul the trailer,  The Greatest Gift does not charge! Instead, we come for a love offering, and sell our merchandise. This not only helps us get from place to place and meet our expenses, but it also helps to support our outreach, the Little House of Hope & Prayer, which ministers to the homeless and others who need the new life in Christ that we share at this facility.

  • Set-Up  – We have an ever-expanding line of merchandise, and our sound equipment. To set all of this and do a sound check takes two hours. Please ensure there is someone to open the door for us 2 hours before the event is to start. We also need helpers to get everything unloaded in a timely manner. Many hands make light work, so we appreciate any volunteers you might have to lend a hand.

  • Gas and Accommodations – If your event is more than 2 hours away from our home base in Sanford Maine, we may ask for additional help with gas and accommodations. We can discuss this when you contact us.

For more information, you can reach Pastor Wayne at
207-337-2296, or you can email us at
