Hope Church started in a Santa Cruz living room in 2011 when Pastors Danny and Jenny Bennett felt called to transform Santa Cruz County by multiplying churches that help people find and follow Jesus. It’s been amazing to see God’s provision over the years; from meeting at Del Mar Elementary School, to a Santa Cruz skateboard shop, to receiving the theater in downtown Soquel. God is moving! The best part is every week people open their lives to Jesus!
Our team began to ask the question, “What if we could add a second location in a nearby community to multiply and reach more people?” The craziest thing happened next! We were asked to adopt the former New Hope Church in Scotts Valley. So what does this mean? We now have a Hope location in Scotts Valley! These are truly amazing times and we believe this is just the beginning.
This is where the Scotts Valley location Pastors Adam and Erica Burke come in. They answered the call of Jesus to move to Santa Cruz County with their kids Cora and Josiah in 2016. Adam is one of our Teaching Pastors at Hope and has served in Ministry in various roles for over 18 years including youth, college/young adults, Associate Pastor, and pioneering internship programs that multiply leaders. Erica has served in ministry roles with children, women, worship leading and church administration. Every step of the way, God has provided and increased their ministry at Hope and throughout Santa Cruz. Just when you think your dream is too big, God proves that He is able to do even more than you can imagine!
We want to invite you to come and hang out with us on a Sunday. We would love it if you decided to partner with us in helping people in Scotts Valley and the surrounding areas find and follow Jesus. Please pray about how you can take a step of faith with us! Thank you for checking us out online. God bless you on your Journey.
