Our History

Over the Years

^
2003

Founded

MOF originally served as the Richard L. Hamlet Evangelism Association, an evangelism and gospel outreach ministry. Dr. Hamlet traveled across the United States, utilizing evangelism and revival platforms in churches, at crusades, and in open air meetings to share the gospel with thousands of people.

^
2004

International Expansion

God enlarged MOF’s ministry scope to include the adopting, sponsoring, and supporting of gospel outreach initiatives in several countries around the world. Dr. and Mrs. Hamlet would travel to nearly 100 countries sharing the gospel until COVID changed everything in 2020.

^
2014

Ministry in the Marketplace

Dr. Hamlet began airing a weekly business as missions show nationally on Bott Radio Network. The show would be picked up by Salem Media Group and Truth Network in 2021. It currently airs on over 130 stations in the United States, reaching 170 million people.

2015

Stephen Olford Center

Dr. Hamlet purchased the famed pastor-training center in Memphis to continue Dr. Stephen Oford’s legacy of teaching expository preaching. The center also served as a Christian retreat and event center.

2018

Buenas Nuevas Network

God opened the door for Dr. Hamlet to purchase two Memphis Radio stations to bring the good news to Spanish-speaking residents. Buenas Nuevas Memphis evolved into the Buenas Nuevas Network upon expansion into the Jacksonville, FL, market in 2020.

2020

Marketplace Messages

With COVID restricting his usual means of sharing the gospel, Dr. Hamlet and his team developed an extensive Facebook Live bilingual sermon ministry that operated for almost 2 years. At its height these sermons reached nearly 1 million people each week.

2022

Today

MOF sponsors over 40 gospel-centered evangelism, church planting, and discipleship ministries in more than 30 different countries.

In order to facilitate these missional initiatives, MOF is actively engaged in “business as missions” platforms in real estate and multi-media.

BNN has continued to expand to Boston, MA, Albuquerque, NM, Durham, Winston-Salem, and Charlotte, NC.

Guiding Principles

Mission-Driven

We are committed to doing our part in fulfilling the task of discipling the nations so the Gospel message will be fulfilled.

Independent

We are an independent organization working for underprivileged, unreached people groups without regards to race, creed, religious affiliation or gender.

Strategic

We have developed a thorough process for selection and appraisal of the initiatives to be supported by MOF, as well as highly effective planning, monitoring and evaluation systems that are applied to each of the projects we help to fund or with which we partner.

Holistic

Our approach is broad and inclusive. We’re committed to providing a number of creative opportunities in which our constituents can participate.

Unified

We believe in a philosophy of partnership and unification. We also value diversity in those who want to be a part of our efforts. As a result, we have to balance many expectations, but we foster support for each other and never lose sight of our shared purpose.

Non-threatening

We choose not to engage in fundraising techniques or activities that are intimidating, manipulative, harassing or misleading.

Accountable

We are scrupulous about observing the highest standards of accountability and transparency. We support financial reporting in accordance with the requirements of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Committed

We are committed to glorifying God in all that we do. Our ultimate goal is to lift Him up as the source of all good that comes from this organization.

Our Beliefs

Bible

We believe that the Holy Scriptures, consisting of Old and New Testaments, were originally and inerrantly communicated by God and, therefore, are verbally inspired, and constitute the infallible authority in all matters of faith and practice.

Jesus

We believe in the essential deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His inerrant teaching, in His substitutionary and expiatory death, by which we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in His bodily resurrection from among the dead, in His ascension to Heaven, in His present priestly session, in His personal return at the end of the age to raise the dead, glorify the church, judge the earth, and to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.

Man

We believe that man was created innocent and in the spiritual image of God, that he was tempted by Satan and fell, and that through his sin, his posterity thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God.

Holy Spirit

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment, and to indwell and enable the Christian to live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present age.

Salvation

We believe that the salvation of lost and sinful man comes only through the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit as man repents toward God and exercises faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Church

We believe that the church on earth consists of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ who are committed to the worship and service of God through the proclamation of the Word of God, the observance of the Lord’s ordinances of His Church, and the administration of discipline.

Resurrection

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust. The just will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord while the unrighteous will be consigned to Hell.
