Deacon Ministry

Deacons are the instrument for the ministry of compassion, and as such they demonstrate God’s love to the people of Hope Church. They are honored to have been given the privilege to pray and care for you. Teams of five to nine Deacons serve in one of eleven geographic regions that cover Memphis and most of the surrounding communities.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is one-to-one Christian care for those going through a crisis or life challenge. A Stephen Minister is a child of God who walks beside a person who is hurting, a congregation member with gifts for caregiving, who was carefully selected to serve in this role, a lay person who has received 50 hours of training in providing emotional and spiritual care, a caring, Christian friend who listens, cares, prays, supports, & encourages and someone who will be there for his or her care receiver, meeting faithfully for about an hour each week, for as long as there’s a need. If you need the support or care of a Stephen Minister, or if you would like to become a Stephen Minister, you can begin the registration process here.

Prayer Ministry

In need of prayer?  We want to know and are waiting to pray with and for you! Please submit your request online.
