The Need for Real Hope

So many people have lost hope.

They’ve lost hope in the church. In government. In relationships. In themselves. We need to rediscover hope. We feel excluded because of who we are or what we look like. We feel divided by voices at either end of the spectrum who hold their truths as absolute. We feel unprepared to face life’s situations and lost to find solutions on our own. The hope we find in our jobs, our possessions and our relationships is fleeting.

The only place to find hope – Real Hope – is through the love of God. 

Mission & Vision

Real Hope United provides worship, discipleship and service opportunities that will help people rediscover hope through God.

Real Hope’s vision is that hope will be restored and lives will be transformed through a personal experience with the Holy Spirit, by growing in our understanding and relationship with God and by serving as the hands and feet of Christ.

Is Real Hope a church?

Real Hope is an opportunity to explore a relationship with God. For many, Real Hope fulfills the needs they discover as part of a church. For a few, Real Hope is an extension of what they may find in another church home. And for others, Real Hope is simply an opportunity to explore a relationship with God.

Some have called Real Hope the “unchurch” because we provide a uniquely safe place for people who have experienced hurt in church. Our diverse backgrounds, experiences and beliefs are celebrated as opportunities to learn from one another.

All people are welcome. Any question is encouraged. Every belief is appreciated.



Real Hope United was founded by Jeff & DeDe Jones. We stand on the belief that God exists as Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that God has only good plans for every one of his creation (Jeremiah 29:11).

We believe in the love Jesus describes as the two greatest commandments:

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39)
