I’m New

Thank you for checking out Hope Fellowship!

We are one church in three locations with a passion to love God, connect with others, grow in our faith and serve. We invite you to come and experience the journey with us.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11



Experience the journey... it’s been Hope Fellowship’s tagline since our inception in 2000. Our logo is an expression of the path our lives take. One that’s not straight, but curvy, with ups and downs. Regardless of where you are on that path, you never have to be alone. We want to continue to invite others to experience the journey with us... a journey with Hope.


Hope Fellowship began in January 2000 when a group of 51 people met for the first time in a daycare center in Frisco, TX. Pastor John McKinzie moved his family from Nashville, TN because he felt that God had called him to plant a church that would share the message of Hope to the community. A church where people would be excited to come and invite their friends. Since that time, Hope has grown rapidly and now consists of thousands of people, meeting on three campuses at 8 services each weekend.


In 2010, Hope Fellowship was at a crossroad. The rapid growth had highlighted the need for more space to meet. There were two options on how to proceed. Hope could buy land and relocate to a mega-site to allow more people to meet in one location. Or, they could keep the original Frisco East location the same and plant new campuses in different areas. After much prayer and consideration it was decided that Hope would become a multi-site church. In August 2012, Hope’s second campus opened in McKinney! Just one year later, in December 2013, Hope launched its third campus, Frisco West.

How does a Multi-Site Church Work?

Because of the decision to go multi-site, people who previously lived too far away from the original location are now able to be a part of our church family. We have been able to have an impact in neighborhoods and communities that would have never been a part of the Hope story, had we not built a campus nearby.

Each campus is fully staffed with a Campus Pastor, as well as Children’s, Worship, and Student ministry staff to care for, and connect with, those who attend. Our Children’s ministry meets during each service at every campus, and Middle School and High School students have their own service every Wednesday night at each campus. We believe relationships are vital to developing your faith; so we provide plenty of opportunities through Bible studies, interest groups, and home groups to meet people and grow in your faith... no matter which campus you attend.

One Message

The thought of being one church in three locations wasn’t even a possibility when Hope first started, but now, through video technology, it's possible for every campus to hear the same message each weekend! Every weekend, the teaching pastor preaches live at our original campus, Frisco East, where it is then broadcast to our Frisco West and McKinney campuses during each service. Now, no matter which campus you attend, you are able to hear the exact same message as everyone else at Hope!

Give it a Try!

The best way to learn more about Hope is to come and visit! When you arrive at any of our campuses, feel free to stop by the Info Center, where a volunteer will be happy to guide you to the auditorium or the Children’s ministry areas. We would love for you to become a part of our church family as we Experience the Journey together!
