“Reading about my dad’s past and how it has made him into the man he is today has been very impactful for me. The person you see on stage or in this book is who he is at home. He is a man of integrity and character, and
he is a very hard worker. I know that if you read this with an open heart, it will impact you.”

Daughter of the Author

“You could say that Brian wears his heart on his sleeve, but it’s hard to tell because he rolled up his sleeves a long time ago to be the hands and feet of Jesus to this world. He is one of the greatest examples of how to live a life that pursues God’s calling in every season and embraces whatever comes his way. Whether you are in a season of change or a dry spell or looking to keep your momentum soaring, the impacting stories in this book will give you limitless inspiration on how and why you were Meant 4 More.”

“Pastor Brian Thomson is a modern-day hero.

His passion to help the helpless and make a difference in the world has inspired me in my businesses to also step up and want to make a bigger difference!

As you read this book, I know you will also be inspired.”

“Pastor Brian is a great man of God. He heard God's calling and started an organization called Home of Hope to help desperate children and women.
Home of Hope has been a big blessing for ourselves, our Churches (Home Church Rwanda) and even our country of Rwanda. Home of Hope has been helping many vulnerable children with education, food, clothes and shoes. I have seen the children grow up to be great people. I am hoping Pastor Brian's book will be a blessing to many people.”


Fidele Binyonyo
Home Church Rwanda Overseer

“Meant 4 More is a window into the heart of Brian Thomson, founder of Home of Hope, and into the heart of the ministry happening through Home of Hope in many places of our world. You will read about the people who
discovered their “more” as he trained, equipped, and inspired them to be part of the work being done to rescue the perishing. And you will read about those who have been rescued so that they might discover their “more.” I know you will be impacted and inspired to greater purpose as you recognize no matter what age you are or what you have already accomplished, you were Meant 4 More.”
