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 131 highway
  • East of 30th Street (A37)
  • South of 142nd Street
  • North of 116th Street (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 (100%) of the households in the Hopkins Village will have heard the message of the Gospel
 
In One Year, by the end of December 2021, we will have accomplished, by the grace of God and through the power of the Holy Spirit:
Every household (100%) in the Village of Hopkins will have be 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?”
