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 Beth Hoving and Lisa Bloomston as Christian counselors.


If you are interested in meeting with Beth or Lisa or want more information about Living Hope Counseling, please call 239.274.1232.


“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



(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.
