Local Hope is Hope Community Church’s local outreach ministry. We want to demonstrate the Gospel in our communities by loving people where they are and encouraging them to grow in their relationship with Jesus. 

We do this by:

  • Partnering with local churches to meet spiritual, emotional, and material needs in their communities.
  • Equipping and encouraging small groups and people at Hope to love and serve their neighbors.
  • Teaming with local non-profits and ministries to meet volunteer and donation needs.

Our Strategic Church Partner: Ship of Zion Church

Ship of Zion Church meets in the South Park community of downtown Raleigh. The church meets the spiritual and material needs of their community through community-development efforts.

Local Hope is partnering with Ship of Zion to support their work. Plans include discipleship and intentional outreach activities, affordable housing, a food market or co-op, job-skills training, micro-business opportunities, and more.
