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.

2020 Mission Jamaica

Looking for the HSM Jamaica mission trip? Look no further! Jamaica 2018 blew past our expectations and left its mark on our students. We expect much quicker registration for June 2020 and an even bigger waiting list. Sign up soon!
Registration can be found HERE.
Adults wishing to lead or participate in the trip can sign-up here. The number of leader spots will be determined after the student registration closes.

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.

Bake Sale Fall Fundraiser

Middle School & High School students may sign-up to bring bake sale items for this year’s bake sale as a fundraiser for future trips and events! There will also be a silent auction for specialty items created by or donated by Hope’s Pastors. This sale is a fundraiser for Hope Youth who are planning on using their earnings to cover the cost of missions and service opportunities and faith-deepening retreats.
At this time, students are limited to five sign-up slots. You may check back later to see if more slots become available. Please be sure that all items are non-perishable (no refrigeration) and contain peanut-free ingredients (including no peanut butter).

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
(701) 235-6629, x247
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.
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.
