Though we are a church plant, at the top of our list of priorities is taking our place in God’s plan to advance the gospel throughout all nations. Here’s how we are involved:
– We partner with our denomination as we sacrificially and strategically support local churches across the world. Find more information here.
– We financially and prayerfully support the Pannell family. Josh Pannell is the Dean of the Pastor’s College in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, which seeks to train local pastors for the work of the ministry.
We care deeply about every Christian’s maturity in Christ, which is why we have partnered with Downline Ministries. This fall, Downline will be starting enrollment and we are happy to announce that Living Hope is sending 3 members to participate.
Each student of Downline is equipped to better handle God’s Word while at the same time encouraged to start discipling relationships with younger believers in our church. Find out more about Downline here
Sunday Morning Class
Each Sunday morning, Living Hope Church offers a Sunday class beginning at 9:15 AM.
The purpose of each class will be to topically cover material with the intention of growing in our knowledge of the Bible and its application upon our lives!
We hope you can make it!
We are excited to announce that beginning in the fall 2022, Living Hope will be launching our college ministry “Hope on the Hill” led by Colten Larsen.
Hope on the Hill exists to proclaim the good news of Jesus on the University of Arkansas campus in order to encourage faithful Christ followers to pursue one another through discipleship and service within the local church. Follow us on Instagram at @HOPE.ONTHEHILL
Living Hope wholeheartedly affirms the vital importance of the ministry of women in our local church.
Each year, team members work hard to provide at least four events to serve the ladies of Living Hope with the most significant date being the ladies retreat in the fall. In addition to these events, ladies gather for a time to study God’s Word together on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month.
If you’re interested in learning more about these events, please contact Sarah Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At Living Hope, we take the call to cultivate Biblical masculinity seriously. During the spring, we hold a men’s retreat which consists of teaching and fellowship. More information on the men’s retreat can be found here: Men’s Retreat!
Each week our church meets on Sunday morning, but throughout the week we scatter around NWA to live out the gospel. So, how does a church our size develop community with each other?
Small groups—or, as well call them—community groups are the “heart and soul” of our church. They are where big church becomes small. We know that these small, intimate communities are where true, lasting relationships form. Every other week, these community groups meet around NWA. These gatherings are time for prayer, encouragement, and relationship-building. Even though our church building is in Fayetteville, we have members traveling from miles away, so it is important to have these localized small groups of believers.
Ask any member of our church — these groups become family. They walk through times of loss, times of need and times of joy. They display the love of Christ by loving each other. In His kindness, the Lord has blessed our church with these groups, and it is our desire for every member to experience the Christ-exalting relationships they provide.
Please use the list below to find a community group near you! Once you decide which group(s) you’d like to visit, just contact one of our pastors, Tim Campbell at email@example.com to get contact info for the particular group(s).

2022 Bible Reading Plan
“The most noble thing we can give ourselves to this year is the reading and memorizing of God’s Word.” ~ Pastor Matt
It is our heart’s desire, as a church, to be a people of the Word. We love the Bible at Living Hope and desire 2023 to be a year where we dedicate ourselves to read and memorize God’s Word!
What could be of more value this year than knowing, memorizing, and applying God’s Word?
So, join us this year as we read through the Bible together. The plan that we have chosen for our church is Robert Murray M’Cheyne’s well known and widely respected Bible reading plan.
This plan features 4 different readings for use in both family and personal devotions. Each day has two passages from the Old Testament, one from the New Testament, and one from either the Psalms or the Gospels.
In one year, you’ll read the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice.

Here are some ways that you can follow along with this plan:
- If you have the ESV Bible app, the reading plan is easy to access in the app
- Or, with a free login you can get it on the ESV website.
- Or you can subscribe to a Crossway podcast and listen.
- Crossway also sells an ESV Daily Reading Bible laid out on the M’Cheyne plan.
“Let our secret reading precede the dawning of the day. Let God’s voice be the first we hear in the morning.” Robert M’Cheyne
In 2023, let us commit to being a people committed to God’s Word!
For the glory of God in Christ!
The well known missionary, Hudson Taylor, often said, “Conquer through the Lord”. By this he meant our need to take everything to the Lord in prayer.
At Living Hope, we are seeking to embody that call. We recognize that the call to make much of Christ is one which we cannot do alone; we need His help.
That’s what our prayer meetings are all about; namely, making much of Christ. We want Him to be known in our city, state, and world. We want Him to build His church. We want Him to provide for his church.
