Answers for Hope is a ministry that empowers believers to boldly walk in faith. Our website’s purpose is to assist soldiers in God’s kingdom by giving them the equipping they need to effectively engage in spiritual warfare whether that be abstaining from sin, helping others who are struggling, defending the faith by answering objections from those who don’t believe, or getting guidance on living life in general.
At the age of nine, Jason Petersen was told by God that he would ‘stand up for the Christian faith.’ He did not know what that meant at the time, but throughout his life, it was clear that we was called to preach the Gospel and defend the faith from attacks from unbelievers and misguided believers.
In 2011, Jason discovered that he had cancer and this is when God once again called him into ministry. In 2013, Jason answered that call by starting an apologetics ministry called ‘Answer for Hope.’ Answers for Hope was a popular website for apologetics. His family convinced him to focus more on his secular job at a local utility company. Jason was also in school and did not have a lot of time to devote to the Answers for Hope ministry so he took a hiatus.
Over the next seven years, Jason grew in his faith and learned about the power of faith. In 2019, Jason restarted Answers for Hope with a different purpose. Instead of being only an apologetics ministry, Answers for Hope is a ministry that gives answers to questions, empowers believers to walk boldly in faith, and provides provision for those who are in poverty.
