Hope Church • Christian Church in Hattiesburg, MS

Faith has been the story of Hope Church from the very beginning. Pastors Joel and Emily followed the call of God to Hattiesburg, MS in 2012. With just a small group of believers, Mr. Del Dowe opened up his barbershop on Oak Grove Road to be used for services. In August of 2013, God miraculously opened the door for Hope Church to move into Oak Grove Middle School (OGMS) auditorium. While at OGMS, we began to develop stronger relationships within our community and minister on deeper levels to the Pine Belt area. 

We were blessed to move into our current facilities in March of 2014 and God began to establish us and build a strong foundation. Our vision of “Leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ” really began to come to life and into action. God has truly multiplied and breathed on His vision. Over the last 9 years, we have seen hundreds of people give their lives to Christ and begin to walk in the abundant life that He has for us. Our heart is to see all of Hattiesburg and the Pine Belt know God, find freedom, discover purpose, and make a difference in their world. Not only do we want to reach our city, but we love to partner with other ministries to see people across Mississippi, our nation, and our world come to know Jesus. 

Currently, we are part of several local outreach ministries in our community, two church plants across America, and international missions efforts in Nepal, Brazil, and Uganda. In October of 2016 we purchased ten acres of beautiful land in the heart of Oak Grove. We paid the land off in February of 2022 and our story continues to unfold. In the coming years, Beyond will serve as a pathway to accomplish the vision that God has placed in front of us. Until Jesus owns our cities, we will keep working to accomplish what He’s asked of us. 

We will leverage our efforts, our finances, and our lives until His Kingdom comes, on earth as it is in heaven.
