Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Hope Church supports missions and missionaries as well as church planting networks.

Our Missions focus starts first in our city, then to our region, and then to the nations of the world. We also partner with disaster relief organizations and other churches and ministries because it raises our effectiveness in fulfilling our mission.
