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 meeting in 1996 at Stadium Village Church on the University of Minnesota campus. Despite moving to Downtown Minneapolis in 2003, 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 after graduating.
We have two Sunday morning services at 8:30 AM & 10:30 AM in our Hope East building in the Elliot Park Neighborhood in Downtown Minneapolis. 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!
Leadership Development Opportunities
Learn to better read and understand the Bible, meet others at Hope, and grow as a leader. We have classes, seminars, retreats, and internships available.
Young Adult Ministry
Looking to connect with other young adults? Check out our Young Adult Ministry (YAM). This is a great way to be in community with other young adults. YAM gathers twice a month at 6:30 on Sunday evenings at Hope Community Church – Downtown (Hope East) and also has other social events to help you prepare for a lifetime of walking with Christ.
