High School Ministry at Hope is for students in grades 10-12. HSM exists for high school students to know the love of Jesus.
We create spaces and opportunities where students can build life-long friendships, encounter Christ together, and grow as spiritual leaders.

HSM Wednesday Night Live

Wednesdays | 7:15pm | North and South Campuses 
WNL is a space where students can laugh together, get real with each other, grow in Christ, and build community they can count on. If you haven’t visited before, we’d love to have you! You’ll experience fun messages, worship, and games,  then get plugged into small groups with other students.

What is an HSM Work Crew? Ask our students! Free retreats for High Schoolers. Time with friends. A chance to serve. A chance to grow in faith. Loads of fun! One Work Crew remains for the 2018-2019 school year:
Do you love Camp Castaway? Then consider coming back as a High Schooler! Your cost is covered so that you can serve the 9th grade class, but you can also plan on hanging with friends in your free hours and joining us every evening for High School worship. Work hard, play hard, that’s the Work Crew way.
Mission Colorado

Registration deadline is February 22.

We call Camp House (2019 Information TBD) “the best place on earth.” Our annual summer retreat is five days of laughter and freedom with HSM leaders and friends, four nights of worship and purpose-driven teaching, and side trips to our favorite spots along Lake Superior and Duluth. There’s nothing like it!
Pastor of HSM
(701) 235-6629, x213
Kristian says HSM is the “best job ever.” He is fueled by people instead of coffee. He insists that teenagers, golden retrievers, loyal friends and toothbrushes are God’s best gifts to mankind. His single-mindedness means he can usually be found moving quickly, listening closely, talking too much about Jesus, and trying to remember what he was just doing.
Director of HSM

Ashton is new to Fargo, originally hailing from the St. Croix Valley of Minnesota. He brings an abundance of leadership experience to HSM, loves a challenge of any sort, and brims with passion for God. If you have not met him, look for a 6’4” flannel-wearing twenty-something strolling around Hope with a grin on his face and fire in his heart.
Pastoral Intern

Sully desires, more than anything, to see others humbled and empowered by God’s grace. His witty sense of humor is only funny because he thinks it is. He works day and night to ensure that HSM has the ideal amount of sugar and ice in its lemonade because students (and leaders) aren’t fans of luke-warm lemon water… he has found.
Student Ministry
Administrative Assistant
(701) 235-6629, x277
Terri is the real brains behind Hope’s student programs. You can expect to find her planning events, crunching numbers, singing hymns, or herding us like cats. She handles finances, registrations, events, strategy and all the points of vision that get missed.
