The Encore Difference…
Encore is a uniquely different ministry at Hope. Ministries are normally top-down-led and directed by a Hope staff pastor. But Encore is bottom up-led by the laity, its participants who organize and serve in various teams or Life Groups based on common interests and activities suggested by Encore research. As a ministry of Hope Adult Education, Encore does have staff oversight and support from the Education Director, Matt Tubinis. For more information about Encore!, please contact Matt (Matt.Tubinis@HopeChurchMemphis.com).
New participants can sign up to join a specific Life Group that fits their interests and abilities. The teams or Life Groups are responsible for leading and managing their respective group to include planning, organizing, and producing group activities within Hope’s guidelines.
