The word that comes to mind when we think of working with Hope Is Alive Ministries is honored. We are truly honored to have the privilege of working with the humble, yet talented Lance Lang. His own story is powerful, but the fact that we have gotten to play an integral role in helping his ministry come to life is nothing short of amazing.

The first step to taking Hope Is Alive upward was to rebrand the logo under an element that resonated with the message and the audience they were trying to reach.

Adding existing and upcoming books and t-shirts and event details allowed the ministry to become more self-sufficient with less legwork.



Turning their event marketing up to eleven helped HIA quadruple the number of partners and event sponsors.

Without a doubt Upward Media pushed our organization to an entirely new level! They are a huge reason why we've experienced such success the last two years. Their dedication, and creativity are second to none.
