Hope Shores is a place where anyone can be part of the fun and everyone is a member of the family. You’re invited to have silly amounts of both fun and rest in a place where you’ll be known by name by the end of the first day—and challenged to grow every day after. There are no pretenses here—no pressure to impress or perform. Just the chance to unplug, be yourself with other people, and let Jesus transform you.

What Matters at Hope Shores?

You Matter
We want to know you by name and for you to come exactly as you are.
Jesus Matters
Everything we do is centered on Jesus and His transforming hope.
Friendship Matters
We build intimate relationships with each other, because that’s how we grow.
Fun matters
There’s a lot to be learned in silly times together, and there’s no pressure to impress or perform.
