Hope on Campus

Helping Students to Know and Follow God for the Long Haul

We love college students! Our roots run deep at the University of Minnesota, where Hope first started in 1996. Despite moving to downtown Minneapolis, our desire to see college students across the Twin Cities become fully devoted followers of Christ has not changed. Hope on Campus exists to help our students know and follow God while in school, and to discover their role within the church for the long term — even if they move on from Hope Community Church after graduating.

Sunday Service

We have two services in our building in downtown Minneapolis on Sunday mornings at 8:30 & 10:30 AM. You can find more information on our Hope Downtown page.  Need a ride? The Hope bus drives through the University of Minnesota Minneapolis campus every Sunday morning to bring college students to & from Church. We would love for you to hop on!
