This is my H.O.P.E. The community that I love. It is what I do for life and this is God’s gift to me. My life is and always will be about the people.
The House of Prayer for Everyone (H.O.P.E.) is a multi-ethnic church serving the Maryland-Washington, D.C.-Virginia metropolitan areas. H.O.P.E is a PC-USA denominational church.
Our vision is to equip all people to be passionate lovers of Jesus Christ, reach the lost and practice mercy in the house of prayer.
At H.O.P.E., prayer is the heartbeat of our ministry. We believe that the prayer room is the place of intercession, the place of encounter, and the place of invitation to passionately pursue God. We abide by the core values of seeking intimacy with God, reaching lost people, and building community through the house of prayer.
Our church began as the English-Speaking ministry of the First Korean Presbyterian Church of Maryland, located near the University of Maryland in College Park. Stirred by Isaiah 56:7 we eventually found our identity as the House of Prayer for Everyone. We seek to be a place of celebration, healing and restoration as individuals walking out in faith and as a corporate body whom the Lord will use to bring revival to this area.
We are a community of believers consisting of four different fellowship groups:
- HOPE Kids (ages 2 through 11)
- CHOSEN youth group (middle and high school students)
- HOPE Gen (Young Adult Ministry) ages 18 through 23
- ARC (Adults Reaching Christ; singles) ages 23 and up
- COVENANT married couples and children
We hope to be a place where people can freely come and meet with God. All are welcome at H.O.P.E. Church.
