New Hope was founded with a passion for REACHING THE PEOPLE NO ONE ELSE WAS REACHING.
New Hope started in a DRIVE-IN MOVIE THEATRE with founding pastor Dale Galloway speaking on top of a snack shack.
Location & buildings didn’t matter as much. In its first 10 years, New Hope met at nearly a dozen different sites.
It’s time to rediscover what it means to be PIONEERS, NOT SETTLERS.
SHARE HIS LOVE.

Relocation will allow us the freedom to be the church God has called us to be, unhindered by debt and an oversized, costly, and aging facility.
We’re currently exploring two primary options: New construction or repurposing an existing facility.
REPURPOSE AN EXISTING FACILITY
- $8-$13 million
- Needed: existing retail space, church building, or warehouse
- $10-$15 million
- Needed: affordable land, trusted contractor, economic design
LAUNCH DAY: To Be Determined
Prior to moving into our next permanent location, we hope to use Clackamas High School as a temporary location.
Clackamas High School, 14486 SE 122nd Ave.
Services in Auditorium
Kids in various classrooms
ABF in library
A modern & beautiful building
A more intimate worship space
A place that feels like a living room for the community
Cutting-edge Kids’ facilities
A coffee shop open 7 days a week
A free medical clinic or food bank
Spending 15-20% instead of 40% of our budget on facility
Staff & volunteers less hindered by finances
Less distraction from a large and aging facility
The freedom to reproduce – launch a new site or plant a church
Too much building
Drain on staff & finances
Property has become a major distraction
When you say yes to one thing, you say no to others

- Between 40,000 and 50,000 square feet

- A location that allows us to invite people into a life of faith and to serve the surrounding neighborhood
What could prevent the sale?
What happens if this deal falls through?
How long would New Hope be in a temporary location?
Why don’t we stay in our present facility?
Who do I contact with questions or concerns?
Who has been involved in this project?
Who made decisions along the way?
The New Hope Elder Board has made all the final decisions and will continue to do so. The board is made up of 9 people from the congregation and the Lead Pastor.
What happens to all the money from the sale?
Will anyone personally profit from this sale?
Do I really need to keep giving when New Hope has all that money in the bank?
Yes. Our general budget will not be funded by money from the sale. We will still rely upon the generosity of the New Hope community to continue fulfilling our mission. Most importantly, God calls us to generosity as a lifestyle.
Giving is not about what New Hope wants from you, it’s about what we want for you. A generous life is the best kind of life
