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

Details are being decided now for the 2020 Jamaica Mission trip! The 2018 HSM Jamaica Mission trip was a huge success and there was a waiting list.  
Click HERE to complete a brief survey and be added to the Jamaica information list. This is not a registration, but those who complete this survey will be first to receive the registration link when registration opens in September.
Information meetings are September 15, 12:30pm at the North Campus and 7:00pm at the South Campus.

HSM Wednesday Night Live

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.

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.
