At Hope we have the joy of beginning our new church with new mission partners. Our main partner is the Evangelical Covenant Church, a growing denomination with over 1000 churches in North America. We are so blessed to have them as our sponsoring partner organization.
When we started Hope, we knew that we could do more by partnering in Ministry with others.
Individual churches can do great things, but we can have a greater impact on the world the more we work together. That’s one of the reasons why we’re part of the Evangelical Covenant Church - and why we partner with people locally and all over the world. From here you can find links to many of those ministries and learn about how we support one another!
To begin, Hope is part of the Evangelical Covenant Church, a denomination of churches 850 strong and Nationwide. The ECC is 135 years old, and finds its roots in simple questions of faith that lead to a lasting relationship with Jesus. Questions like: How goes your walk? and, Where is it written? get to much of the heart of the ECC - that our journey with Jesus and our time in the Bible drive our ministry. The ECC has a heart for creative ministry, and reaching new people in new ways - one of the reasons why a church begun my Swedish immigrants is
now over 35% non-white and growing. Locally, you can find Hope under the Pacific Northwest Conference of the ECC. Hope also financially supports the Bakers, Covenant workers in Marseilles, France. Due to the
nature of their ministry, we proudly support their work while helping them keep a low profile on social media for their safety. You can find their latest newsletter here. Locally Hope has partnered with and supported the Everett Gospel Mission, Lil’ Hungry Hearts, he Lake Stevens Community Meal, and more. What a blessing to see the work of God being done by so many different people of God!
At Hope it’s our philosophy to support the amazing work and ministry that our partner organizations are doing. You can find out more about these great groups that we support (both financially and with our volunteers) here.
