ministries of new hope

A key part of demonstrating God's love to others, as well as living out the values we hold dear is doing ministry:

meeting the needs of others around us.  We can't do everything, but we aim to do the following with excellence and great passion.


    Through the ministry of the Christian Counselors Collaborative of Pittsburgh, licensed Christian counselors are available. Some insurances are accepted. Help is available for those with demonstrated financial need.  Call 855-222-2575 to schedule.

  • elevate MEN's ministries

    During the summer, our guys get together on the third Thursday of each month for a Meat and Greet. During the rest of the year, they get together once a month for a Saturday breakfast, followed by a serving project of some type. Another long-term goal of Elevate is developing men for senior leadership at New Hope.

  • gateway cafe

    On Sunday mornings after our gatherings you'll find great fellowship happening around coffee, juice, fruit, and donuts. Come join us and get to know us better!

    One of the largest ministries at New Hope, folks serve as parking attendants, greeters, ushers, security, and Information Center staffers.

  • kingdom builder kids

    Another large ministry, Kingdom Builder Kids encompasses all of our Sunday morning kids ministries from birth up through 5th grade.

  • life groups

    Small groups for adults that meet inside and outside of the church building for most of the year. Group topics are varied and quite extensive. We encourage every adult to be involved with others during the week, through the Wednesday night teaching or in Life Groups.

  • missions & outreach

    We take annual mission trips to foreign lands. We also support local, stateside, and foreign missionaries and mission organizations with prayer and finances. Local outreaches to our community happen throughout the year, as well.

  • nursery

    Our incredible nursery is open to help parents get the most out of our gatherings on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. On Sunday morning, we love on littles ages 6 weeks to the 2nd birthday. At Family Night we love on them up until the 3rd birthday when they transition to Rainbows.

  • women's group

    Our ladies' Bible study meets on the 1st and 3rd Sunday mornings, from 9:00-9:45, to receive from the Lord through each other. Studies focus on Pastor Damian's message from the prior Sunday. In addition, many of our ladies serve in various ministries in and outside of the church. They also attend an annual fall conference in Hershey.
