FULL CHURCH PROFILE: frootgroup.com/newhopecommunity


New Hope Community Church is looking for a new Pastor of Worship Ministry. Our current Pastor of Worship has transitioned as the Lead Pastor. New Hope has a solid reputation for quality music and worship, and we are excited to see how God will use new leadership to take our existing program into the future with new and creative ideas. New Hope is a theologically conservative church, but we attract many people from a diverse variety of backgrounds from unchurched to Pentecostal and Liturgical. Our style of worship is definitely contemporary and participatory. Our desire is that the next Pastor of Worship Ministry will not only be a skilled musician, but will also be a strong leader who is able to shepherd, teach, and most importantly has a deep love for Jesus and for seeing others grow in their love for Him.


The city of Hermiston is the largest city with the largest school district in Eastern Oregon. It has a population of over 18,000 and is surrounded by a number of smaller communities. It lies 3 hours directly east of Portland, OR and 35 minutes south of the Tri-Cities, WA. The Hermiston area is steppe desert and is situated near the Columbia River and the Blue Mountains. It is primarily an agricultural area but also hosts much industry including a number of Amazon facilities and a Walmart distribution center. Hermiston is a fast growing and thriving community full of transplants that have moved here to fill the growing need for both skilled and unskilled labor.
