Hope Communities make Hope Church... well, Hope Church. Getting connected in one of these smaller faith communities will help you connect to people, be loved by the church, learn more from the Bible, help meet needs in our community, be discipled by our leaders, find accountability and support, and learn how to live out the mission of Jesus in our city. These groups are the life blood of our church! You should make it a high priority to get connected today!!!
Someone asked recently "Where and when do your Hope Communities meet? ... I can't find it on the website." These groups are faith FAMILY that do life regularly together; they are not a "when" or "where"... they are a "who." Times and locations change constantly but family life continues to happen throughout the week.
We have groups living in the Mid-City/Lakeview area, in Metairie and in Kenner. We currently have 4 groups are are working toward expanding to six groups the next few months.
Here are some of our leaders & disciple-making teams:
- Jake & Jenny Bywater and Jeremy & Andrea Waterbury - Mostly young adults, mixed generation group, married and single.
- Reuben Foster, Angela Leblanc & Tyler Cotrell - Mostly college students.
- Andrew & Lauren Goolsby, John & Ricki Vancalcar and Sharon & Cory Lynch - Mixed generation group, married and single.
- Matt & Elaine Tipton - Married & single, children, mostly young adult.
