How it all started...

Pastor David and Michelle met in Central Florida while attending Southeastern University in Lakeland.  After serving at two different churches in North Carolina for over 20 years, God brought them back to Central Florida to serve on a church staff with a friend.  In the early part of 2015, they began to sense a stirring toward planting a church.  As they drove around some of the communities of Central Florida, God led them to Davenport.  Even though they didn't know anyone, they began to dream about what God could do in Davenport as they prayed for and fell in love with this community of people.   Partnering with ARC and our Parent Church, One Church in Longwood, FL and receiving support from many friends, family and churches, David and Michelle along with an incredible launch team set out to plant One Hope Church,

Two weeks before launch Sunday on September 25, 2016, 50,000 postcards were sent out to the Davenport and Haines City community that simply said, "This Piece of Mail Could Change Your Story Forever".  As we opened the doors for church in the Cinepolis Theater in the Posner Park shopping center for the first time, 269 people packed out the room and 7 people responded to 'Turning the Page' in their life and following Jesus!  

Moving Forward ...

Through the ups and downs, God's Vision for One Hope remains clear!  Our Hope is in Him!  We're going to continue to give more weight to what He has said, even if it doesn't match what we see!  We are moving forward ... step by step!

There are more people that need to hear the life-transforming message of the love of Jesus and we are committed to that mission!  The BEST is yet to come!
