25 Years At HopeFront Church

Nov 01, 2023

As I look back on the last 25 years, there is so much to be thankful for. God's ways are higher than our ways, so we never know how He will move, but we know that He will.

There are so many blessings to count along the road to where we are today, but here are 25 things that I am thankful for (in no particular order).

Has HopeFront Church changed your life in any way?

If you have attended, served, given, or participated in any way at HopeFront over the last 25 years, know that you are a part of the miracle on this tobacco field. We thank you and I would love to see what your list is.
