Who we are

RailHope International, founded as International Railway Mission (IRM) is an interdenominational federation which connects christian fellowships with railroadmen all over the world. Beside this the IRM offers every three year an inspiring and recovering conference- and leisure week. It serves to exchange experiences and enjoy fellowship to the participants. Since the foundation of the IRM in 1926 twelve associations were added to this federation. Youngest member is Singapore (since 2017).

Vision

Christians who work with the railway shall be encouraged to start local or regional meetings and to form a national railway mission. 

Aim

The main issue is that Christians with the railway may find ways and possibilities to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in such a manner that their co-workers will recognize and experience the living God.
