The purpose of Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation is to empower courageous leaders as they guide the Church into life-giving expressions of God’s mission. Hope Partnership serves transforming congregations and their leaders; nurtures leaders through coaching and peer support; and identifies, equips and supports leaders to plant new congregations.


Transformed and empowered leaders are critical to leading congregations to do God’s mission in the world in this challenging era in congregational life. Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation offers leadership and ministry resources that help raise up these leaders and prepare their congregations for transformation, including:

New Beginnings, a service designed for churches facing issues of future viability.

Epiphany, a service designed for the congregation longing to become a transforming presence both inside and outside of its church walls.


Hope Partnership coaches walk alongside new and transforming church leaders to help them remain on track and accountable for the goals they set for themselves and their faith communities.
