Seeking Connection: with Jesus • with our own hearts • with each other

The Women’s Ministry at Hope is about connection. We laugh a lot. We celebrate each other. We have lots of parties. We strive to point women to Jesus through a deep connection with their own hearts and with each other. We also help to facilitate mentoring, discipleship training, prayer triads, and social gatherings in order that women from different stages in life can better know and care for one another. We also have various and fun connecting opportunities throughout the year. Whether its the NCAA bracket challenge, dinner parties, or other fellowship opportunities, please make sure you are on Hope’s mailing list so you won’t miss out.

Hope Women’s Ministry Structure

There are three part-time women’s ministry staff positions at Hope. Jen Guzi is involved in women’s leadership development, and Alex Whitaker and Stephanie Ham are also part of the women’s ministry staff. Our Women’s Shepherding Team oversees the women’s ministry at Hope and is comprised of women who are appointed by the session.
