Who We Are 

Although there are many forms of church partnerships and mergers, Hope+Elim is two congregations choosing to intentionally come together in November 2020 for the sake of God’s kingdom. The former Hope Des Moines campus and Elim Christian Fellowship are now Hope+Elim. We exist with a specific and unique role to serve the city of Des Moines striving for agape love and to create and preserve the Beloved Community, on earth, as it is in heaven.
