From its inception, Hope has taken seriously our Lord’s command to care for the under-resourced among us. To that end, we have implemented a rich variety of successful urban initiatives that have become part of our DNA. These programs foster relationships between people from two very different backgrounds and lifestyles. They make friends out of strangers, and heal the wounds of our past.

For over 25 years, the Urban Ministry of Hope Church has offered life-changing experiences through the Urban Plunge and Justice Tour of Civil Rights Movement. These events have been instrumental to getting individuals engaged by serving others through discipleship and giving. The Urban Ministry serves over 1,000 families annually through Thanksgiving Food Drives, Backpacks for school children and sponsoring families during Christmas with the Tree of Hope. Our ministry has been avid about serving 100’s children annually from the inner city by with Resurrection activities and hosting Vacation Bible School sessions during the summer at various churches in South Memphis, Frayser and other areas of the city. To get involved, take a look at some of our volunteer opportunities here.

Our mission extends to serving others with monthly feedings for homeless individuals and families experiencing food insecurity in North Memphis.  We also have on-going partnerships with other ministries in the city such as Neighborhood Christian Center, Multi-National Ministries and Streets Ministries that include financial and volunteer support for youth tutoring and mentoring initiatives.
