Hope Communities

When Hope Communities meet in homes throughout our city, we truly live out our name, “Hope in the City.”

Grow in Christ through College Hope Communities

Hope Communities are where “church” exists as students gather, worship, encounter the Bible, live in accountability, pursue God’s mission and pray together. We grow in Christ by practicing spiritual gifts, allowing ourselves to be known, encouraging and challenging one another in community.
