About Groundwork

Groundwork is a half-hour weekly audio program that digs deeply into scripture as a foundation for our lives. Each week, pastors Dave Bast and Scott Hoezee cultivate our understanding of God’s Word by unpacking the richness of the Bible and applying it with insight for today’s world. Their casual conversation invites us to hear more of what God is doing in our lives. And on this website you can join the conversation, comment on past or future episodes, or exchange prayer requests with our prayer team.

Combining over 130 years of Christian broadcasting, Groundwork is a joint project from Words of Hope and ReFrame Media, the English ministry of Back to God Ministries International. Dave Bast, President of Words of Hope, and Scott Hoezee, Director of the Center for Excellence in Preaching, together share over 50 years of pastoral ministry. On this website, you can follow along in the conversation with the auto-scrolling transcripts, explore the episode and series library, and gain new perspective on the Groundwork Blog.

Seeing God's Story in Your Life

Groundwork is a production of ReFrame Media, the English-language mission of Back to God Ministries International. We produce a family of gospel resources online and on the air, all in order to invite you to see in a new way what God is already doing in your life. God restores and renews, and when God's story enters into your life, your whole life is reframed by the gospel.


Telling His Story... Sharing His Love

Back to God Ministries International uses a variety of media to reframe lives around the globe with God’s story. After more than 75 years, our mission remains to share the gospel, disciple believers, and strengthen the church through media resources in ten major world languages. We invite you to celebrate God’s story in your life and join us in sharing the good news with people around the world.


Proclaiming Jesus Christ through broadcasting

For more than 70 years Words of HOPE has pursued a single, well-defined mission: To proclaim Jesus Christ through broadcasting in the languages of the world’s peoples, seeking with our partners in ministry to build the church by winning the uncommitted to faith in Christ and by encouraging Christians in the life of discipleship. Today, in more than 30 languages on five continents, Words of Hope proclaims Jesus Christ by radio to a potential audience of staggering size. Together with our broadcast partners, we are closing in on our goal to make the gospel accessible by radio in the “heart language” of all the world’s peoples.
