NL Moore & Associates is pleased to announce it is working with Hope Church of Oakdale, Minnesota in its Pastor of Community and Mission search.

It’s an exciting time in the life of Hope Church ( as they prayerfully seek an energized and relational leader to join their team as the Pastor of Community and Mission.

“Disciplemaking” is a key concept for this growing congregation of 400, and it informs much of their philosophy of ministry. The incoming Pastor of Community and Mission will resonate with the collaborative focus of the team. The mission of Hope Church is to bring glory to God by making disciples. The Hope community is encouraged to live as a disciple by:

  • Living out their IDENTITY in Christ
  • Responding in WORSHIP to who God is, what He has done, and what He is doing
  • Investing in COMMUNITY with others, intentionally sharing our lives together
  • Pursuing a life on MISSION to reflect God to the world around us

While the Senior Pastor is responsible for pointing people toward who we are in Christ (Identity) and the Worship Pastor is responsible for leading the church collectively in responding to that identity (Worship), the Pastor of Community and Mission will be focused on helping congregants invest in discipleship (Community) and pursue evangelism (Mission) as a lifestyle. Hope believes the Church isn’t a building, but people who live lives that reflect Jesus by engaging in these four areas of discipleship.
