The H.O.P.E. program was founded by Pastor Rick Carter Jr. Ph.D. in 2008. Pastor Carter has his doctorate in Biblical Counseling and is the Pastor of Beth Haven Baptist Church of Oklahoma City and President of the Beth Haven Baptist Seminary. It is his earnest desire to help people who have found themselves entangled in the snare of addiction to experience the freedom that comes through applying the Word of God to their lives. Pastor Carter has committed himself to the task of making materials available to Independent Baptist Churches that will help them to minister the grace of our Lord to meet the needs of life.
