Jesus teaches us to love each other and offer assistance when it is needed. At New Hope Presbyterian Church, we offer a variety support options. Our goal is to expand this field of ministry to serve all of Fort Myers and the surrounding communities. Read about the ministries below to learn more about how we seek to help the hurting. If you have questions, please email Pastor Mike Jones at


If you or someone you love suffer with continuing pain, please consider being a part of this support group. New Hope members and others in our community are welcome! The Chronic Pain Support Group will be meeting on Thursday, August 4 at 1pm at New Hope Presbyterian Church. Please contact Patti Mehaffie at with any questions.


The struggles of our life sometimes cause us to ask, “Why me, Lord?” Sometimes, we just need someone to talk with who can give us biblical direction and counsel or someone with a Christ-like spirit to come along side of us in crisis, stress, or depression.

At New Hope, loving those who could use a supporting hand has always been a core value, and we are pleased to recommend Lisa Bloomston as a Christian counselor.

If you are interested in meeting with Lisa or want more information about Living Hope Counseling, please call 614.893.5809.


“This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” (2 Corinthians 9:12)

Our Deacon Ministry Teams exist to love and help the people of New Hope who are hurting or going through a difficult time in life. If you have questions or need Deacon support, please email Steve McKinnon at


(A Caring Ministry)

The Stephen Ministry is a program designed to serve the New Hope family. It equips lay persons to provide one on one Christian care to those who are experiencing all kinds of life needs and circumstances, both in our church and in our community. It is a confidential ministry: those receiving care may be sure that their identity and the caring relationship will remain private.

After the funeral, when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives. But, your grief continues and you feel alone. In Grief Share you’ll gain access to valuable resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life. You’ll find it to be a warm, caring environment that will become an “oasis” on your journey through grief.

GriefShare will be meeting at New Hope on Tuesdays from 2:00-3:30pm in Room 209 beginning January 12, 2021.  You can sign up at by searching for New Hope under the "Find a Group" tab or by emailing Questions? Email
