New Hope Church fundamentally exists to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus.


New Hope was founded with five families back in the early 1980’s. Today, with a clear vision Love God, Love Others, and Serve the World, the church has grown to become a diverse and growing congregation of over a thousand, located in Bend, Oregon. The church has a strong focus in its programming to families, as they seek to partner with families and help them raise their children to become followers of Jesus. It further boasts well-rooted outreach ministries that significantly impact its community, locally and globally.


The Children’s Pastor will be responsible to cast vision and give leadership to the Children’s Ministry (birth thru 5th Grade) and their families. This individual will bear the characteristics of a Bible-believing, spirit-filled Christian.
