A Message of HOPE

Good news! God is still at work, there is hope for every person, neighbor, neighborhood and nation. For every kind of person there is the kindness of the Saviour. The gift of God is for everyone and is needed to heal our world. We are committed to preach Christ because the love of God calls all of humanity to have a living relationship with Him.

Email Updates

Our email updates are the best way to stay in touch and celebrate what God is doing

Our Approach

It is important that our approach allows the good news of Jesus Christ to be shared broadly, realized within community, and expressed personally. Therefore, we work together in the three areas below:

Proclamation

Making the good news of Jesus known is essential and central. We do this online as well as personally and through city-wide campaigns; to call people to salvation, bring unity to churches, help people find healing and renewed faith.

Conversation

People grow when faith is shared in community and inspired dialogue. We do this through small groups, round table conferences, and leader training to put Christ at the center of interpersonal relationships and daily interaction.

Activation

Everyone who knows Christ has something to offer. We activate faith by creating opportunities and special projects that harness personal and professional skills to do good and make a kingdom-difference in the world.

Betler Family

Our Story

Jason Betler is the founding evangelist of The Nations Hope and regional minister with The Foursquare Church. He has served at the side of Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke and has also pastored a church in San Jose, California USA. He is a passionate preacher of the good news of Jesus Christ and of the body of Christ in Asia where he has ministered since 2005. Jason and His wife, Angelique reside in Singapore with their three children..

Long Version

Jason Betler is the founding evangelist for The Nations Hope; a ministry reaching people with the saving news of Jesus Christ.

Background

Jason was raised in the Northeastern part of the United States near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Raised in a small church, he became familiar with the word of God and the hymns. However, it was not until later that he came to faith in Christ.

Calling

Jason responded to Jesus’ call of salvation and was born into God’s family at a music audition in Baltimore, Maryland (USA) in 1993. “Jesus found me right where I was,” Jason recalls. “No church service or preacher necessary; just Jesus and me. I had prayed, saying ‘Jesus, I could use you right now.’ It was not the most elegant prayer, but apparently that was all Jesus needed. Jesus stepped into my life and I suddenly felt so clean inside! I was forgiven of all guilt and I knew it. I also remember feeling loved like never before. It was amazing. My whole world was changed in a single moment.”

Jason quickly became a vocal advocate of the gospel to his classmates. He was a sophomore, studying music at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (USA) during that time.

A year later, while watching an interview on Christian television, Jason saw what the Lord was doing in Africa through a man named Reinhard. Jason remembers “something ‘clicked’ deep within me and I remember jumping up and yelling at the television, saying ‘Lord! That’s the real thing, and that is where I want to be!”

Jason relocated to Orlando, Florida (USA) in 1997 and was involved with various ministries in the local church. During a Sunday morning class, he met Matthias Schleier, who had just just moved to town with Christ for all Nations; the ministry of German Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. Matthias and Jason became roommates at the same time Evangelist Bonnke relocated to the United States. Jason was invited to join the office team and soon found himself traveling and serving as Bonnke’s Personal Assistant.

At Bonnke’s side, Jason saw the power of God in action – leading millions to salvation. Physical healings and a myriad of testimonies followed wherever the gospel was proclaimed. And Jason began to catch a vision for what God could do in other parts of the world; especially Asia.

A stop at the Christ for all Nations office in Germany caused a meeting between Angelique and Jason. Not thinking they had much in common, Angelique began speaking about her desire to be a missionary in China and Asia. The relationship blossomed and they were married in 2003.

Ministry

From Evangelist Bonnke, Jason caught the vision to form a ministry having a similar evangelistic nature. With Bonnke’s blessing, Jason and Angelique founded The Nations Hope in 2004.

The Nations Hope grew quickly and the Betler family, now with Juoleanne (3) and Jonathan (2 months), moved to Singapore in 2008. They soon expanded with an office in Jakarta, Indonesia for a time as well.

Jason’s activity was largely focused on Southeast Asian countries. Indonesia, Singapore, Myanmar, Malaysia, the Philippines are but a few. Taiwan and other Asian countries were also frequented. Anywhere the gospel could be preached!

Gospel crusades drew large crowds in unlikely (and often overlooked) areas. Multiplied thousands of people were finding salvation in Jesus Christ. Testimonies of physical healings happened in many meetings. The response to the good news of Jesus brought peace and reconciliation to families, churches, local governments, and cities.

Jason Betler often ministered in churches and training of church leaders and business gatherings.

Changes came in 2015 as the Lord led Jason and Angelique, and their family (now also with Jeremiah) to pioneer a church in San Jose, California where they pastored for 5 years before returning to focus on The Nations Hope in 2020.

They are currently in the process of returning to Singapore with the double-duty of serving as regional missionaries along with their other evangelistic initiatives.

Education and Credentials

Jason holds a Master of Arts in Christian Ministry from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS) in Springfield, Missouri, USA. He is an ordained minister of The International Church of the Foursquare Gospel and a regional missionary to Southeast Asia under Foursquare Missions International (FMI).

Family

Jason and Angelique have three children: Juoleanne, Jonathan and Jeremiah.

Evangelist Jason Betler speaks and ministers in churches, revival meetings, conferences, gospel crusades, or wherever the Holy Spirit allows him to go.

What others are saying

REINHARD BONNKE

Evangelist

“Evangelist Jason Betler is well known to me. He is of impeccable character and lives an exemplary life. Jason has a deep burden for the lost to be saved and carries a powerful evangelistic anointing. His heart is burning with the fire of the Holy Spirit to see the captives set free. Although he ministers across the world, the continent of his special calling is Asia. God’s hand rests mightily upon him and I believe the Lord will use him to shake whole nations.”

DENNIS BALCOMBE

Missionary (Hong Kong)

“Brother Jason Betler has traveled with us extensively in mainland China and has ministered in several major house church network leadership meetings. His ministry in China has helped hundreds of church leaders. We also know he travels to many Asian nations, has ministered all over Asia and understands the needs of Chinese and other Asian. I can highly recommend him.”

PAULUS WIRATNO

Missionary

“I have known Jason Betler for several years. I have no doubt that God has been anointed him in mighty way to reach the lost and the heal the sick. For several occasions, I witnessed the power of God manifested through The Nations Hope ministry. I would like to encourage our fellow leaders to welcome and even support him for His glory. I thank God for knowing and working together with Ev. Jason Betler.”

GEORGE BUTRON

Missionary (Asia/Global)

“I want to invite you to get to know the Betlers and be encouraged by their joy and passion to touch people with the truth, love and power of Jesus. Jason has a big, contagious vision and I have personally been challenged and blessed by his determination and faithfulness to serve and be an effective instrument in the harvest. I love, admire and respect this family and celebrate their lives and ministry!”

We are forever grateful to Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke (1940-1919) and the Christ for all Nations team. Pastor Bonnke’s example, mentoring, friendship and love has meant the world to us. We honor him as we continue to preach the glorious gospel of Christ; plundering hell to populate heaven for Calvary’s sake.

With Gratitude

Reinhard Bonnke entered into his heavenly reward in December 2019. He was mightily used by God as one of the most effective evangelists of our time. He was also a father in ministry to Jason Betler, who served as Bonnke’s personal assistant in the early 2000’s. The influence of this working relationship led to Jason launching a ministry with a similar evangelistic DNA; The Nations Hope.
