Hope Community is a start-up church 
that launched in the summer of 2012. 

We occupy rented facilities, so when you visit us on a Sunday morning 
you probably won’t find a lot of the usual stuff you might expect to see in a church building. 

Hope Community is an all-denominational church. That means that everyone is welcome. No matter where you are in life or what you believe you are welcome to come check us out. 

The people of Hope Community Church desire to be a force for good in our community 
and a blessing to our neighbors. You can learn a little bit about us on this website. 
However, the best way to find out about who we are is to visit us on a Sunday morning. 

Find out how you can join us or find out more about what we believe.

Joshua Shaffer is a Delaware County native.  
He, his wife Holly, and their daughters Lily and Evangeline live in Norwood PA.   

After graduating from Philadelphia Biblical University, Josh went on to complete an MA in Theological Studies at Liberty Theological Seminary.  Prior to his work with Hope Community Church Josh worked in children's ministry, youth ministry, and adult small group ministry. 

Josh firmly believes that the Church was never intended to be a religious organization.  
Instead, as Josh often says, the Church is the righteous movement of Jesus Christ in the world.  Pastor Josh hopes and prays that Hope Community Church will flourish as a part of that movement.
