Our Mission


Our mission is to bring the hope of Jesus to Greater Vancouver and beyond.

Our Vision

We envision being missional, joining Jesus everyday in his mission to seek and save the lost wherever God has placed us.

We envision being a multiplying church, strategically and sacrificially planting other churches throughout Greater Vancouver and beyond.

We envision being multi-ethnic, living out the beauty of racial reconciliation through the awesome reality of the gospel and our reconciliation to God through the Cross.

We envision being multi-generational, bringing together young and old to share life, work side by side, and learn from one another, resulting in a beautiful synergy as we seek to serve God as one body.


Philip, Grace, Micah and Karissa are church planters with the Evangelical Free Church of Canada. Philip enjoys biking, Grace loves coffee, Micah digs the sandbox, and Kari is learning to crawl.

Kids' Church

Hope City Kids’ Church is a clean, fun and safe place for kids to learn about Jesus and grow in their friendship with Him and with others!

The nursery is for ages 0-18 months and meet in the play area in the main atrium. Parents & babies worship, play, interact and listen to the Sunday’s message. There is also a nursing area provided.

Kids’ church for toddlers, preschool & elementary aged children meet in their own designated rooms. If you join us for a Sunday morning, you will be greeted by a host at the door to check your child in. The kids will then join you and the whole church for a few songs of worship and then be invited to their classroom.

There, we will have interactive worship, a Bible lesson time, prayer time, and an activity time that could be a craft, a colouring sheet, or a game that helps apply our lesson. For preschool – grade 3, there will also be an offering time where kids have an opportunity to give towards a need in God’s world (such as buying a pig for a family in need through World Vision).

Intermediate kids & preteens (grades 4+) have a discussion based curriculum with relevant topics about how Jesus integrates into their everyday lives. This age group also meets 2x’s a month for hangouts on Friday nights.

Children will be picked up to join the rest of the church for refreshments following the worship service.

All of our volunteers have had background checks and go through a series of training. We know God loves children deeply and we want to create a place that is caring, safe and exciting!
