Who is Pastor Dion Todd?: Dion is the senior pastor at Refreshing Hope Ministries. His extensive background in computer networking as well as a love for God's word made him a perfect fit to start this online ministry. Out of his simple country background, Dion's writing emphasizes simple testimonies and truths, that resonate with the "working class". He presently lives in coastal South Carolina with his wife Sylvia. You can read a short version of his testimony by clicking here.
The Daily Word of Hope Devotional : The Daily Word of Hope is written by Pastor Dion each morning in his prayer room. After spending time in prayer and worship, he waits for that low whisper and then writes whatever comes. Many people find that the word speaks directly to what they are dealing with that day, and a timely word from God changes everything. The devotional is posted each morning about 3 AM EST, 7 days a week, and is then emailed to all the subscribers. You can sign up to receive it each morning by clicking here: Subscribe to the Daily Word of Hope Devotional.

Teachings by Pastor Dion Todd: here some of the most frequently-requested teachings from Pastor Dion, as well as thoughts on some topics that have especially high importance in a typical Christian walk.

  1. Bible Study: our ongoing chapter-by-chapter, and verse-by-verse study of God's Word.
  2. Prayer - Talk to Me: We hear from many people who think they can't pray "well enough". This article covers biblical principles for prayer - it is much simpler than you think.
  3. Fasting - A Lost Art Another one here: Fasting fasting is a biblical practice which has the power to change lives in a powerful way. Most of the big moves on God in our lives have involved fasting. If you need a change, we recommend that you look into this.
  4. Giving - The Key to the Cell Door: while there may always be other factors, tithing and giving are foundational biblical principles for living in God's abundance. If you are burdened in lack, this is the place to start.
  5. Marriage and Divorce: If you are having hard times in marriage, this is a truthful read. I have been on both sides of it.
  6. The Love Dare: This of course is from the movie, "Fire Proof." But we got permission to post it here, and I believe it is a valuable resource.
  7. The Holy Spirit: the Holy Spirit is our comforter, counselor and guide on this Earth and an important part of the victorious Christian life.
  8. Hearing God Speak: Most Christians would like to hear God's voice better. We believe this series will help you in that worthy goal.
  9. "What Time Is It?": This series is a biblical analysis of the end times, separating fact from fiction:
Books by Pastor Dion Todd: There have been a few books written by Dion and you can find them here on the Bookstore, as well as Amazon. Here is Pastor Dion's Author Page at Amazon. Individual Books:
Music by Pastor Dion Todd: Music has always been a part of my life and I began playing in bands when I was in my teens. When the Lord put us into ministry, I began to look for copyright free music that I could perform during our live meetings here at RHM, and to my surprise, the Lord began giving me original songs. I write them down as they come, record them in our home studio, and share them here at Refreshing Hope. We also use them during the live meetings. We have a music group here for those interested called: Make a Joyful Noise. For those wanting to give me something special, here is my musical dream list at Sweetwater Music. Don't laugh... a man can dream. :)
