On Sunday, November 5th, 2017, the elders gave a very special announcement at the beginning of our Central Gathering: New Hope is excited to plant a new church here in Manhattan under the leadership of our very own Ben Deaver and Dave Geldart! The goal will be to launch the plant in the fall of 2018.
Check out the full announcement to hear lots more by clicking on this link (which also includes the message): Central Gathering, November 5, 2017: Abram's Scary Step of Faith.
