Hope Gateway

This is a picture of a ministry in Portland, Maine called Hope Gateway.  

This ministry started as a large downtown church called Chestnut Street United Methodist. As time went on, the church became smaller and smaller, until there were only 12 people left. They made the tough decision to sell their building, and do something else as a church. From this beginning, Hope Gateway was born.

Those 12 people took the brave step of doing something different. They are now a church with two locations whose focus is on serving their community. They are outward focused ministry, operating out of two "campuses" with three worship services, including a dinner worship at this store front location.

What brave, new thing is God calling your church to do?
