New Hope Christian Church
New Hope Christian Church is the largest evangelical church in Marshalltown, Iowa with 750 in average weekly worship attendance. They are looking to reach beyond in 2018, with another campus already chosen for their second location.
New Hope Christian Church reflects the city of Marshalltown. It is made up of multiple generations, people from all socio-economic levels, and various ethnic cultures that have migrated to the area. The staff is committed to their mission statement, “Pursuing God For The Benefit Of Others. Being The Church Wherever We Do Life.” This is evident in their passion to equip people to be the Church in their city, schools, places of work and home communities.
The student ministry has between 50-70 students and 15-20 coaches. These coaches are highly committed and loyal to the students. They’re on the hunt for a Youth Pastor who equips students, leaders, and families to make disciples. More than hosting great events, New Hope desires a Youth Pastor fluent in biblical teaching and practical application so the Great Commission and Great Commandment are fulfilled.
Wednesday night has recently moved from a worship and preaching model to a small groups model using the “Orange” curriculum. Through the years the youth ministry has tried many different styles but finds that coach (adult volunteer) led small groups is their sweet spot.
