Our Story


Church of Hope began in 2006. A handful of people began meeting in Elk River with the sole purpose of honoring and glorifying Jesus Christ. As we loved people, we prayed that God would use us to impact His kingdom. Because of our past experiences, we believed that God was calling us to “do church” differently. From the beginning, we wanted to make sure that we focused on things that were most important.

1. Being Real People: We don't pretend to have it all together; we are just regular people from different walks of life desiring to follow God and know Him better.

2. Experiencing Real Relationships: Life is not easy. It can feel like a real roller coaster at times with all of the ups and downs. We have found that it is much easier when we walk this journey together. We value deep relationships and know that God created us to encourage one another.

3. Offering Real Hope: We all need hope. We have found that God offers us true hope through his Son, Jesus. We want you to experience that same joy and hope.

As we remain faithful to share the Good News of Jesus Christ we are thankful that God continues to bring new people who want to join us on this exciting journey of pursuing God.

Whether you are just interested in spiritual things, seeking a relationship with God, or already have relationship with Him, all are welcome at Church of Hope. Church of Hope began as, and continues to be, a place to experience God in new and relevant ways through His word, through worship, through relationships and through serving others.
