Leading the Way: Though he no longer leads OneHope, Bob Hoskins still provides a prophetic voice to the ministry he founded

Though Bob Hoskins handed over the reins of OneHope to his son, Rob, in 2004, he remains a prophetic voice to the ministry he founded

“Dad is still a visionary, and God is still speaking to him—and he’s still my mentor,” says OneHope President Rob Hoskins. “God will lay a nation or a part of the world on his heart and he’ll help open doors for us—first in the spiritual realm and then by traveling to those nations to build relationships.”

The senior Hoskins is no stranger to world travel. As a child evangelist he held mass crusades. When he turned 17 he set out to the mission field with a special focus on the Muslim world. The first home he shared with his wife, Hazel, was a thatched roof hut with a mud floor in Africa.

Now 76, Bob has been in ministry for nearly 70 years. He still travels 200,000 miles a year. He’s beaten cancer three times. And he believes he’ll live 20 more years to see the first stage of Vision 2030, OneHope’s vision to engage 4.2 billion young people with God’s Word in the next 18 years, completed.

“I began preaching at the age of 7, and that’s perhaps proof that God has a sense of humor,” Bob says. “As a child I preached to adults, and when I got old God shifted my ministry to children. OneHope is the vision of my lifetime, and I see it so clearly now.”
