New Hope is a grace and gospel centered
fellowship which exists to magnify Jesus Christ
in the areas of worship, fellowship and outreach.

Let us exalt Christ together! Join us as we worship, grow, and serve together to the glory of our Triune God.



--- Our Pastor


Hi! I’m Francis VanDelden, the pastor at New Hope. I hope you’ve enjoyed perusing our website, and invite you to meet us in person. Here’s a brief history of our familymily:

My wife Laura and I hail from Hamilton, Ontario (Canada). We met in our church youth group, although nothing happened until years later (I’m “a little” older than her -but she’s wiser). I completed my undergraduate studies in Classics at McMaster University in 1995. While operating a fish & chip restaurant franchise from 1997-2002, I got to serve as a chaplain at a children’s summer camp. God used this chaplaincy role to call me into the ministry, so I enrolled at Westminster Seminary California.
