Journey into Hope

If you are ready to join our army of developing disciples, Journey into Hope is your first step. Our Journey into Hope process includes our four introductory ministries: 1st Touch Ambassadors, New Members, Volunteer Development and Baptism. Baptism is our auxiliary ministry in which you can be baptized at any point during your Journey into Hope.

1st Touch Ambassadors

You’ve decided that you want God to be the center of your life and you’re ready to turn to Him. Great! Our 1st Touch Ambassadors are here for you as soon as you answer the call. Our 1st Touch Ambassadors lovingly walk you through the entire Journey into Hope process from start to finish.

On Sundays, you’ll be able to connect with our 1st Touch Ambassadors directly after each service at each location next to our “VIP” sign. You are our VIP and your salvation is that important to us.

New Members

After you’ve decided to answer the call, you are joined with a 1st Touch Ambassador and you are on your way to your next step, “New Members.” You are introduced to the who, what, why and how of Hope City Church through our New Members class. Here you get the chance to learn more about your local church home (Hope City Church) within the kingdom.

Volunteer Development

Now that you’ve completed your New Members class, your next step is to get ready to partner with God through serving and volunteer engagement. Our Volunteer Development team helps you identify your God-given talents and temperaments and to learn how they can be applied to our 20+ vibrant ministries at Hope through our quarterly orientations. Once you’ve completed volunteer orientation, you’ve officially “journeyed into Hope.”

Already a member of Hope and looking to serve and get involved? Reach out to our 1st Touch Ambassadors and they will sign you up for our next volunteer orientation.
