Boldly bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to every household in the greater Hopkins community through Expectant Prayer, Effective Evangelism, and Radical Obedience to the Holy Spirit.

 

 

Over the next 7 years (beginning January 2021), Hopkins Community Church will reach every household in the greater Hopkins community with the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 
  The “greater Hopkins community” is defined by HCC as:
  • West of US 131 highway
  • East of 30th Street (A37)
  • South of 142nd Street
  • North of 116th Street (M-222)
 
In Three Years, by the end of December 2023, we will have accomplished,
by the grace of God and through the power of the Holy Spirit:
  • Three (3) generations of small groups, launched using ROOTED as a catalyst, that involve at least 50% of the HCC congregation (as well as many initially outside the HCC community of faith) leading to an increase in the percentage results of our ministry metrics
  • Six (6) regularly hosted Community events, hosted by HCC, intended to serve and bless the greater Hopkins community
  • Twelve (12) trained and mobilized prayer teams (24 people) that are actively serving within Hopkins Community Church and in the greater Hopkins community
  • Fifty percent (50%) of the congregation will be trained, equipped, and inspired to have a conversation with anyone that they meet about Jesus at the prompting of the Holy Spirit
  • Fifty percent (50%) of the households in the Hopkins Township will have heard the message of the Gospel
  • One Hundred percent (100%) of the households in the Hopkins Village will have heard the message of the Gospel
 
 
At the end of Year One, December 2021, we accomplished,
by the grace of God and through the power of the Holy Spirit:
 
HCC attempted a visit of every household (100%) in the Village of Hopkins.  We made contact with 87% of the roughly 240 households in the Village of Hopkins.  We received, prayed for, and followed up on over 70 prayer requests and a number of service requests as well.
 
Our Goal: Visit every household (100%) in the Village of Hopkins will have been contacted by a Hopkins Community Church partner and asked the following two (2) questions:
  • “How can we serve you?”
  • “How can we pray for you?”
 
At the end of Year Two, December 2022, we hope to have accomplished,
by the grace of God and through the power of the Holy Spirit:
 
HCC will ensure that every household in the Village of Hopkins has had an opportunity to hear and respond to the Gospel message.  We will continue to offer prayer and seek opportunities to serve individuals and the community.  Additionally, Hopkins Community Church is responding to the Scriptural call to not be burdened by debt by seeking to raise at least $330,000 to be Free from the financial debt that we have.
 
This one year goal is divided up into smaller, 90-day goals.
