Pastor Q, and Angela are both natives of the Cedar Valley. Neither of them grew up in overly religious homes. It wasn’t until later in life that they both came to know Jesus. Following both of their conversions, there was an overwhelming burden and sense of urgency to share the love and message of Jesus with all of their family and friends.
We began to dream in those early years of a time when we would see the gospel set hundreds and thousands of people free in our community. For eighteen years this remained a prayer and a dream, until we moved home to plant Hope City Church.
With the help of the Core Team, 6 people committed to seeing this dream become a reality. We launched Missional Communities the summer of 2015, and our public worship gathering on September 13, 2015. That Sunday more than 200 people attended the first service. From the beginning, Hope City Church has focused on lifting high Jesus, reaching those who are far from God, building relationships, and serving our city through missional communities. Pastor Q and Angela live in Waterloo, with their two children, Kaylee and Jonathan.
We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to seek God with passion!
