New Hope Church was founded in 1995 by Pastor Karew and Marilyn Manns. It begin in a small church building in Kenton, Ohio. Pastor Karew and Marilyn eventually passed the baton of leadership to their son-Pastor Jason and his wife Meg. Under their leadership, the church outgrew its first building and officially became a “portable church” in September 2008. New Hope Church’s vision is clear: We want to represent Jesus to our city, county, state and world; and want the church to point people to the simple life-changing truth of what Jesus offers humanity…the FREEDOM of a NEW LIFE.
In 2012, New Hope Church purchased property which they converted into New Hope Ministry Park. The park houses a fully-equipped Homeless Shelter, church offices, and several other ministries. This property includes the site of the future New Hope Church building. In November of 2021 New Hope Church brought their vision of a new HOME to completion as they moved into their brand new building!
New Hope Church sees hundreds of people impacted every week. God continues to rescue people and lead them into a new life of FREEDOM in Jesus. By providing dynamic environments where people experience God’s presence, building relationships through small groups, reaching the next generation, and pointing people to Jesus, we are seeing the spiritual climate of our city change one life at a time.
