A Word from our Pastor!

There has never been a more exciting time than right now at newhope church! God has given us an enormous vision for the next chapter of this beautiful movement and we actually get to partner with Him to help change the world through the power of Jesus Christ! God has been so very kind to us! To think the Lord God wants to include us in such a redemptive plan is breathtaking to say the least!
The Best is Yet to Come!

Whether it’s the 9 campus up fit projects within the REACH component or the Central Campus construction and technology enhancements in the TEACH portion, God is up to something BIG!! The missional work of launching newhope Kenya, building a church and school, digging clean water wells for safe drinking, and sponsoring the ARK Orphanage within the RELEASE piece, is more evidence that God is truly up to something BIG!!

Please begin asking God what you can do to help make this vision a reality. I thank God for you and your participation in the newhope movement!

  • newhope, Kenya, a Matthew 25 campus launched July 27, 2014
  • The Ark Children’s Home of Thika. This orphanage is home to 31 children who were abandoned on the streets and in the slums of Thika, and our strategic partnership will help provide education, food, and care for these orphans as well as instilling the importance of missions in this new campus in a region that has received the benefit of global missions but often not engaged in missions themselves!
  • Christian School in Thika Town, Africa. A financial investment of $350,000 would allow newhope Kenya to have a building as well as building a public school in partnership with the Kenyan government.
  • Deep-water wells, and water filtration and storage systems to provide clean drinking water. We would like to reach a goal of installing one well each year of the Hope Rising campaign. At $50,000/well, that is a total of $150,000 that would provide a clean water source for entire villages for generations!
  • Kiria, Kenya – newhope will continue to partner with the Kenyan village of Kiria, providing financial assistance and mission teams to work on projects identified by the village leadership as helpful in community development!
  • Bohoc Haiti – Financial support to Bohoc for these three years of Hope Rising to go towards community improvements, water source development, and education for the children in the village.
  • Local Missions: Strategic partnership of local missions.

Your Most Popular Questions

Where will we meet during the renovation to Central Campus?

Throughout most of the expansion, Central Campus will be able to continue to meet in the current Worship Center.

However there will be a 6-8 week period where we will need to meet offsite. We are praying and planning Southpoint Cinemas will be our official meeting place for that time period.

What is the size and target amount of the capital campaign?

$8,000,000 for all campuses!

How can I help? What areas can I volunteer?

We need volunteers in many areas like Prayer, Interior Design, Worship & Production, Audio Visual, Connections, Information Technology, Events, Administration & Invitation, Children?s Ministry, Student Ministry, Landscaping, and Facilities.

Feel free to mark your connect card with a specific area and we will match you up with the appropriate team captain. We would LOVE to have you!

Are there different levels of contribution and pledges?

Check out the table provided on the pledge cards to help clearly define what a three-year commitment might look like. We encourage you to seek God and listen to His voice. When He guides you to a three-year pledge, just say, ? Yes!? and trust the Lord!

Is the capital campaign commitment above the Biblical tithe?

Yes. We are asking everyone to pray, seek God?s face and listen to what He is calling each of us to do above the Biblical tithe following the model outlined in I Chronicles 29. We have to keep paying our bills, staff, and continue in ministry, so please pledge above and beyond the tithe! Thank you!

How much more parking will be added?

Roughly 300 more spaces at Central Campus and 30 at the Garner Campus.

What are the details related to the pledge?

It is a three-year campaign starting Sept. 14, 2014. We will be receiving pledges and a First Fruits Offering (a target of 10% of your total pledge) on Commitment Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014. You will then have three years to fulfill your pledge!

How was the goal amount determined?

After assessing the future needs of the campuses and our missional calling as a movement, we assembled the costs associated with pursuing God’s best for newhope church.

Our campaign partner, Injoy Stewardship Solutions (ISS), used their tools to analyze our church size and financial data to guide the Executive Team in determining the appropriate goal amount.

How much debt will be added and are we paying off current debt?

We plan to add very little debt, if any, if we have a successful campaign. We also hope to completely pay off the debt at our Garner and Sanford campuses!

How will the congregation receive updates after the campaign?

We plan to provide updates every 4-6 weeks over the next three years in order to keep everyone updated on the latest developments on this journey. These are exciting days and God is being so very kind to newhope church! Get ready!

Lean in! Engage the season and seek God like never before. No doubt, hope is rising and the best is yet to come!
