Grace and Race

Led by Joel and Tia Gaines

Risen Hope’s GRACE and Race Fellowship is helping our church discover understanding, empathy, and mutual commitment in love across the ethnic lines that normally divide. Joel and Tia work closely with our pastoral team to develop strategies for conversation (called Grace and Race Conversations), and to help us build into one another with humility and grace.

For more information about Grace and Race Events, please check our calendar.

Youth Ministry

Led by Rick Butler

R116 is our growing youth ministry named after Paul’s words in Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes: to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” We meet twice a month to help our teens and pre-teens to understand the gospel and live in a way that is defined by its power. Our primary youth discipleship model is the parent-youth relationship. Because of this, we meet as both parents and youth to help equip us as disciples.

Young Adults

Led by Paul Kostyukov

Young Adults is a ministry for college students to those in their early thirties. We come together as a community to fellowship through worship, games, studying the Bible, and eating cookies. We meet every 1st and 3rd Saturday and would love for you to join us!

Men’s & Women’s Ministries

Led by Korey & Nykki Efunnuga

The IronMen Men’s Ministry is designed to provide effective ministry to men in 5 areas of focus. We seek to define biblical manhood and our identity in Christ, foster a life of worship, and grow in spiritual disciplines. We also endeavor to build community through small groups and fellowship, serving and discipleship. The IronMen Men’s Ministry meets on the 4th Tuesday of every other month (alternating with Risen Women’s Ministry) from 6:30 pm–9:30 pm.

The Risen Women’s Ministry is designed to provide effective ministry to and for women by providing opportunities to go deep in relationship with God. We also strive to help women in their understanding of God’s Word and to serve one another and the church with grace, wisdom, and strength. We recognize that women’s experiences in this world have far too often been marked by mistreatment and abuse. We seek to provide shelter and care for those who have survived grievous sins in our fallen world. The Risen Women’s Ministry meets on the 4th Tuesday of every other month (alternating with IronMen Men’s Ministry) from 7:00pm-9:00pm.

Workforce Believers

Led by Dave Estornell

Over a period of several weeks, we meet for a book study and share thoughts, challenges, and perspectives on living as disciples in the workplace. This study is open to all adults: those who are working, have worked, or plan to work in any shape or form. Looking to Scripture for wisdom, strength and hope, this study group is a source of mutual encouragement, prayer, and fellowship for one another. The format is casual, and people can drop in or leave early if needed.

For information about our current study, please check our calendar.
