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.

On Sunday 10/6, Hope hosted our sister congregation Washington Shores for our 4th annual shared World Communion Sunday. After worship we assembled 367 Love in a Glove Box kits -- ziplock bags with water and non-perishable food donated by members to give to those in need. We surpassed our September goals to walk "8 Million Steps for Change" (9.7 million steps recorded)  and raise $2.5K ($2,517) for Florida Rights Restoration Coalition. FRRC is raising funds to pay fines and fees for returning citizens who've completed felony prison terms (apart from murder or sexual assault), restoring their right to vote. While returning citizens face nearly impossible obstacles to finding work and housing, the right to vote gives them voice in the future of their loved ones and reduces recidivism. Both churches will continue to receive designated gifts for FRRC throughout October.
As of 10/1/2019, Hope Pres has provided 842 microloans in 80 nations (totaling $21,425) via our lending team through Kiva, a nonprofit agency vetting microloans to entrepreneurs in the developing world and the United States.
