The House of Hope Ministry Center will be two stories and sit adjacent to the current renovated sanctuary which opened in 1988. The facility will accommodate all of the administrative, conference and educational needs of both campuses. The new facility was designed by Woods Group, Inc. Architects of Little Rock, and construction is contracted to Carson Construction, Inc., also of Little Rock.
New Hope’s North Little Rock campus is located in the historic Glenview Community near the newly reconstructed Glenview Elementary School and the Glenview Community Center. The House of Hope Ministry Center will allow the church to expand the scope of its existing local partnership and better serve the needs of neighborhood residents.
“We have a vision for not just being in the community but of being in service to the community and our congregation,” said Dr. George Parks, Senior Pastor of New Hope. “The new ministry center will allow us to do both of those things with a greater level of efficiency and excellence.”
The Center was designed to cover the breadth of the church’s current programs and to accommodate the continued growth of the church. The state-of-the-art facility will have four premier functional areas: a children’s suite, youth suite, multipurpose conference suite and an administrative suite. The new facility will boast a variety of amenities, including: classrooms, a multipurpose area equipped with a full production stage, a full-service commercial kitchen, additional offices for staff, and a transitional multipurpose conference suite with four separate exposition spaces that can be combined to create one large conference room. The project will also include an additional 175 parking spaces. The House of Hope Ministry Center is expected to open in the spring of 2017.
