Our Origin Story

Hope for the Soul began as the faith story of David and Debbie Siniscalchi. It started in 1992, with a back problem that would require surgery and a 3-to-6-week recovery to restore my daily functioning and relieve my pain. Immediately after the surgery I knew something went seriously wrong. From that day on, my life and family were forever changed, but not ruined or wasted...

In the spring of 1993, Debbie and I were introduced to a faith in God in a very different way than how we were taught growing up. We started off by applying the Biblical principles and values that we were learning into our everyday family life, and almost immediately we began to see a change. Our marriage grew healthy, stable, and strong; and family life with our two children was no longer out of control. We went from a potential divorce to a workable and agreed upon game plan that followed the teachings and beliefs of the Bible. Our life, however, did not get easier. I was permanently disabled (I was also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1999); our income was drastically reduced; and we lost our home, my pension, and our medical benefits. Despite all this, our faith continued to grow, and we made it our mission to live out the “Love thy Neighbor” principle to share our faith in a tangible way.

From our introduction to faith in 1993 to years later in 2007, I received a bible-based education from Moody Bible College, did some basic study with the American Association of Christian Counselors, served in youth ministry, and began ministering to marriages that needed help. After years of extensive volunteer ministry work, I began to feel the calling to start a ministry of Hope.

It was this same year in 2007, while ministering in a nursing home to a person I had never met before, I was asked by the nurse why I was there and why I cared about a stranger. Without thinking, I shared from Hebrews 6:19, which implies that no one should leave this world alone or scared. Instead, we have this anchor that is a HOPE for our soul, firm and secure, and that HOPE comes from understanding why faith in Jesus Christ matters above all things. With all these things coming together, Hope for the Soul was officially born.

The hidden part of the story is how God uses me to do all these things daily while in constant pain. I require extensive chiropractic adjustments weekly and daily 2–4-hour rehabilitative time to maintain my mobility and health. As stated earlier, in 1999 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and since then have had to deal with the repercussions of that disease every day.

When others witness a miracle unfold in one person’s struggle, it proves it can happen in others’ lives as well. God has given me the ability to share my story along with teaching about God’s love and mercy and be able to show others the power of faith, the need for daily direction; and ultimately, lead them to a HOPE for their souls. Never did I imagine that my simple story would morph HOPE for the Soul Ministries into what it is today.

Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to be a multi-tiered lighthouse and anchor of safety and acceptance, to help those with any need or struggle experience hope through the transforming power of God's love--mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and relationally.

Who We Are:

We are HEART.

Every moment we are mentoring, praying, listening, encouraging, and coming alongside someone right where they are. Everything we do comes from a place of showing we really do care.


We pour out into the existential needs of the community without wanting anything in return, including recognition or praise. We will unreservedly serve the needs of those around us, so no one feels invisible or disregarded.

We are grounded by a dependence on and leading of the Holy Spirit as the one who empowers us to serve, lead, and invite people into a community and culture full of His Love, Grace, and Truth.

We are PEOPLE.

We bring people together in a space where everyone can be who they really are, not who they were taught and wired to be. The expectations, facades, and status quo are washed away. We can laugh, cry, and scream together without restraint to celebrate we are loved individually and collectively just as we are.


We get to the roots underneath the surface of symptoms and struggles to help individuals through their pain. What once felt like a lost battle and a never-ending cycle of feeling defeated, helpless, invisible, and flawed, becomes a continual journey of perseverance, small steps, help that really cares, and evidence that we really can accomplish all that the lies in our head and the world around us say that we can’t. And we firmly believe, the more we continue to learn and grow ourselves, the more we get to empower others to do the same.

Culture and Beliefs

The Gospel of Jesus not only brings us into true intimacy with God but empowers us as His followers to speak into the brokenness of humanity found in our communities, neighborhoods, and our world today.

The Gospel is not limited by culture, language, demographic, or location. We enter in, and become a part of, the community around us–knowing that we are a small part of this greater mission that gives life purpose and fulfillment.

As humans, we crave safe and simple answers that give us comfort rather than searching for God in the discomfort. To say God will never allow something puts our faith in a box. Neither doubting nor fanatical, but always securely biblical, we trust that God is still in the business of shaking things up and doing something new; we avoid giving easy answers to complicated questions.

We are grounded by a dependence on and leading of the Holy Spirit as the one who empowers us to serve, lead, and invite people into a community and culture full of His Love, Grace, and Truth.
