Welcome to Hope Youth

If you’re visiting us for the first time, welcome!  Hope Youth is a ministry of Hope Church for 6th to 12th grade / 12 – 18 year old students. 
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions

Together we learn to talk and walk with Jesus.  Central to our gatherings are conversations about following Jesus based on study of the Bible.  Various activities help us grow, think and enjoy being with one another.  In everything we do, our hope is to share the life-changing hope of Jesus Christ as we gather, grow, give and go together. More about the 5G’s of Hope Church
