Who We Are

Loving. Inclusive. Affirming. 

We are a fun and imperfect community of Christ-followers, committed to grow deeper with God and  others and reach wider to serve and share God's love with the world. What's more, we look a lot like the universal Church: a multi-ethnic gathering of all ages, affirming the worth of every human being.

Launched in 2012 as part of 1001 New Worshiping Communities of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), we aim to bring our unique blend of Reformed understanding and passion for Jesus Christ to this emerging community.

Hope is loving, inclusive and affirming -- welcoming people of every race, gender, orientation, age, physical and mental ability, national origin, economic station and political perspective to full participation in the life of our community. All of us are made in the image of God – and each of us is a work in progress.

We believe every Christ-follower is a minister -- and that we live all of our lives unto God.

In a nutshell, here are our priorities:
  • God before All
  • Kingdom before Congregation
  • People before Property
  • Love before Doctrinal Precision
Though the list isn’t comprehensive – and frankly, it’s always percolating – we think these convey our posture when we’re at our best.

Wow!! Hope far surpassed our $5K goal  to  abolish $500,000 in medical debt for those in need, via the nonprofit RIP Medical Debt.  (A gift of $100 forgives $10,000 in medical debt.) In December, Hopesters and friends designated $7,685 for RIP -- which will abolish $768,500 in medical debt!! Way to go! 
As of 1/1/2020, Hope Pres has provided 877 microloans in 80 nations (totaling $22,375) via our lending team through Kiva, a nonprofit agency vetting microloans to entrepreneurs in the developing world and the United States.
