To be a church that connects people to the transforming power of Jesus Christ and a gospel-centered, grace-driven community of faith on the west side of Manhattan.
Hope West Side is a new church plant of Hope Church NYC, a diverse family of churches across New York City. We seek to form a diverse, multicultural, and intergenerational gospel community. Through Sunday gatherings, places for community, and mercy and justice, we hope to serve our neighborhoods and our city with love, compassion, and grace.
Mike Park is our pastor. Before planting Hope West Side, Mike served on the pastoral staff at Hope Midtown and has been in pastoral ministry for 15 years. A SoCal native, Mike has a B.A. in Political Economy from UC Berkeley and a M.Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary. His passion is to see generations transformed through an encounter with Jesus and the power of the gospel. Mike is married to his amazing wife, Jeanne, and they live on the Upper West Side with their daughters Jordyn and Sophie. Contact Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
