Looking for a Place to Grow?

Hope Local KC has a growing young adult population connected to our REVIVE Young Adult Ministry in West Des Moines, Iowa. Alpha is Hope’s major discipleship course offered in a small group format three times per year in the winter, spring and fall. In partnership with Hope West Des Moines, we offer PowerLife for junior high students in grades 6-8 as Hope’s confirmation ministry. Missions is also a focus for us through local outreach and service trips. Hope Local KC attendees have access to all of Hope’s many mission trips both locally and abroad.
