We desire that everyone who calls Blessed Hope home will take their responsibility to grow in Christian Discipleship seriously. One of the best ways to meet people, develop relationships, and grow as a follower of Christ is by finding a place to serve. God has given us all different gifts and talents to use to further the mission of the church. There are many ministry teams and volunteer roles to serve in here at Blessed Hope! Contact the Ministry Team Leaders listed below to get plugged in and find the right fit for you and your family!

Adult Discipleship Team

This team understands that discipleship happens in relationships. Through community, with truth and grace, we are growing Christians from where they are, discipling them to become more Christ-like. They plan, coordinate and oversee our small group ministry, accountability groups and adult Sunday School classes with these core values at the center of everything: Bible-based, Relevance, Relationships, Discipleship, and Prayer-Dependency. This team is always looking to develop leaders to serve as small group leaders/co-leaders and Sunday School teachers.

The Celebrate Recovery Team is made up of individuals from the church who are responsible for holding weekly Celebrate Recovery meetings, overseeing all elements of the CR ministry, and training/overseeing all CR group leaders and volunteers. Celebrate Recovery is for anyone that has a hurt, habit or hang-up that hinders their walk with God and holds them back in life. Celebrate Recovery meets weekly and anyone on the CR Ministry Team needs to be an active participant in the group.
