Hope Local


Hope’s mission is to reach out to the world around us and share the everlasting love of Jesus Christ! Hope Local sites launched in an effort to bring the gospel to those who do not live near a current Hope campus; where individuals can connect to, and worship with, others right where they are! Hope Local sites consist of 10-100 individuals who desire to gather together for worship, mission and discipleship. They worship together weekly via a live broadcast from our West Des Moines campus on Sundays at 9:30 am CT.

Hope Local Testimonials

Buckley FamilyThe Buckleys: Jeff and Lindsey Buckley have lived in Bondurant for 15 years. They have two daughters: Taylor (14) and Leighton (8). They describe themselves as: caring, silly and loyal.

Lindsey leads our Prayer Team and feels this ministry is important because it is the way to talk and connect with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

They are most excited for Hope Bondurant to help this community develop a relationship
with God and learn about Jesus.

Hope is amazing they truly put God first in everything they do. They give Him all the credit and glory!

Hope Local Testimonials

Kansas City
Thummel FamilyHope Local KC has brought our family closer together, with a strength of faith that had been missing for a decade. We are a busy family with two working parents so our weekend routine involved chores, recharging, traveling to see family, and attending sporting events. Then a friend mentioned a new church casually, which happened to be meeting a mile from our house. Throwing on our Hope t-shirts, grabbing donuts, and showing up for church together started to click every week. It’s amazing to know this small group is here for us, and we look forward to furthering our faith and involvement with all of Hope in the future.
