Welcome to the Hope Network

Lutheran Church of Hope happily assists local churches by providing curriculum and consultation for confirmation (PowerLife), Vacation Bible School and adult faith exploration (Alpha). In addition, Hope may also be able to assist in providing full contemporary worship services (high-definition network feeds) to your church or fill more traditional pulpit requests based on staff availability. Ministers at Hope can also assist local groups or churches in the exploration of establishing a Hope Local Site, partnership or campus, or consult in areas of strategic ministry development.

If you’re a local group looking to establish a regular worship location or community, or you’re a church needing specific resources to help your ministries grow, we’d love to talk to you!

How to Get Involved in Your Community

Hope Local Sites

Hope Local Sites are volunteer-led worshiping communities that worship via livestream from Hope in West Des Moines, Iowa. Volunteer teams consist of eight or more dedicated Hope members who have completed the Hope Local Site training prior to launching in their city.

Hope Online Community Groups

Not ready to form a Local Site but want to worship with your friends? Consider forming a Hope Online Community Group in your area. Whether it’s in your home, a clubhouse or other appropriate space, Hope Online Community Groups are worship “watch parties” where you and your family and friends gather for worship.

Become a Partner Church

A partner church is an existing, incorporated congregation that is seeking a partnership relationship with Hope for the purposes of church revitalization, ministry support and/or shared ministry opportunities. Reach out to learn more about how to get your church partnered with Hope.
