Imagine a new direction for your ministry with a New Beginnings assessment from Hope Partnership

Is your congregation in decline and facing mounting challenges with regard to its sustainability? Whether it's stuck, disconnected from the neighborhood, or in financial trouble, New Beginnings can serve your congregation in the context of its culture and stage of life – from the early stages of its ministry to the later stages of its lifecycle.

Over 1,000 congregations have engaged the New Beginnings process, with 99% finding clarity and embracing a new vision for their future ministry.

During the 6 to 8-month process, you will clarify your context, explore your options, and make an informed decision about your future direction.

Of the churches that decide on a future path:

  • 60% choose some form of mission re-visioning
  • 35% chose to redevelop the church
  • 5% choose to close, providing their assets for creating new ministry

In addition to New Beginnings, Hope Partnership Services offers Epiphany, which is designed for the congregation longing to become a transforming presence both within and outside of its walls. Take our survey to find out which service is the best fit for you!
