About 517 Ministries

Our Mission

517 Ministries is an evangelistic ministry that provides biblical teaching on faith, freedom from sin, and living a victorious life in Christ!

Our focus is dedicated to reaching people who have never heard the gospel, taking care of orphans and widows, feeding the hungry, and supporting the local church. 

We help believers know who they are in Christ. When you know who you are in Christ, you can live free from depression, anxiety, fear, addiction,  bitterness, and sin.

Meet Christopher Sakai

Christopher has served in full-time ministry for over 20 years.  He began in the inner-city of Baltimore where he served for over 10 years. He is committed to teach people how to thrive with Biblical faith, to live free from sin, and to live a victorious life in Christ.

He is dedicated to reaching people who have never heard the gospel, taking care of the “widow and orphan”, and supporting and ministering to the local church.

Christopher serves in the ministry with his wife Kelly, their daughter Katelyn, and son-in-law Tyler.  Their number one ministry is to their children, Katelyn, Gabrielle, Kyle, Gavin, Cameron, and now Tyler.

Christopher and Kelly have a passion to see America enter into another Great Awakening.  They believe Revival is Now.  They both have a heart for the church and to help people live the best life possible in Christ.  He believes in the mission left for the church by Jesus Christ: to go and make disciples of all nations…

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."

2 Corinthians 5:17

Hebrews 11:6

Hope, compassion, love

Hope in Action

Hope in Action is the compassion arm of 517 Ministries. Through Hope in Action, we show the love of Christ in a practical way.  Hope in Action ministers to local communities.  We have a 2022 goal of helping 1000 families in the surrounding Winchester/Frederick County communities.

We host Festival of Hope gatherings which are large, fun, family events for local communities that offer support for those who are in need, and present the HOPE that can only come from Jesus.  We introduce each person to Jesus Christ, pray with them, and strive to help them connect with a faith-filled, Bible-believing church.  Our goal is to minister to the whole person: spiritual, physical, and emotional.

Through Hope in Action, we also provide 6000 meals each month to 200 children in the most at-risk parts of the world through our partnership with Feed the Hungry.  Our global impact affects more than a child’s nutrition. It also provides access to an education and allows the Gospel of Jesus Christ to be shared.

Hope in Action partners with local churches.  Consider hosting a Hope in Action event at or near your church.  We will train your church members in evangelism, set up your event, and help to funnel new believers and members into your local congregation.
