Becoming HP Pres

Published On August 7, 2023

Max and Liza visited HP Pres for the first time in 2022 after attending a friend’s wedding and they have called it home ever since.

They quickly connected with ministries within the church and decided to participate in Becoming HP Pres (formerly Starting Point) after being told about the course by Max’s Discipleship Conversation partner.

While participating in Becoming HP Pres, they were welcomed and “encouraged by the different life stages and backgrounds of the folks who are also taking the first step in becoming a recognized member of HP Pres.” God used the class to rekindle a desire to mentor students in Liza and reinforced Max’s faith in Christ as it solidified his desire to be a part of our church family.

No matter your previous experience in church, Becoming HP Pres is a great place to start. As Liza says, “It is not a commitment. It is a conversation. The class is a safe place to ask questions (about the church and the world) and really is the best way to get connected where you belong within this large body.”

It can be intimidating to start a new journey, but like Max’s experience, “The church body here is so welcoming and encouraging no matter what your background is. There is a place for everyone, and you will get a first-hand look at how welcoming the congregation here is.”

HP Pres now has 5,193 total members, 227 of which joined in the last year. Click here to learn more and consider joining Becoming HP Pres. We can’t wait to hear your story and grow in Christ as we become HP Pres together!
