Official Church Partners

These churches have gone through the church partnership process with HopeSprings. Churches having earned this designation have done so through an active commitment of their church leadership to lead congregational efforts of awareness and education. Church leadership and many of their congregants have taken part in the Journey training courses and are actively engaged in HopeSprings ministry efforts to equip the church so that it may effectively engage in the HIV pandemic, restoring hope and healing to those impacted by it. These are churches committed to being “safe” places for those infected and affected by HIV.Central Presbyterian Church (Founding Body)Christway Christian Baptist Church Church of the Nativity Evangelical Bible ChurchGallery ChurchGrace CityGrace Community ChurchGrace Fellowship Church (Founding Body)Good Shepherd Church of God in Christ Horizon ChurchMacedonia Baptist ChurchPayne Memorial AMEChurches we have worked with through training volunteers, education and outreach, capacity building, and project SHALEM testing sites:All Saints LutheranBrown Memorial Park Ave Presbyterian ChurchCamp Chapel UMCChurch of the Redeemer of the LordEvergreen AMEFreedom Temple AMEGarden CommunityGovans Presbyterian ChurchSt. Matthews New Life UMCChurch of JudahProvidence Baptist Bethel AME Bethlehem BaptistMetropolitan United MethodistSt. Peter Claver Catholic ChurchHunt Valley ChurchGrace Fellowship Church-ShrewsburyNew Revelation Missionary BaptistThe Good Shepherd Church of GodSt. Martin Church of ChristRAP International MinistriesBountiful Blessings Worship CenterReflection Ministries InternationalHarvest Christian Worship CenterMount Olive Holy EvangelisticFreedom Temple AME ZionJames Tabernacle Apostolic ChurchUniversity Baptist ChurchGreater Gethsemane MissionaryEbenezer Baptist ChurchHoly Communion Lutheran International Prayer of FaithChapelgate PresbyterianThe New Holy City of Jerusalem1st Apostolic ChurchCity TempleEquity MattersHoly TableAmes UMCSt. Marks on the HillCalvary Baptist ChurchPleasant Hope Baptist ChurchSt. MatthiasImmaculate Conception ChurchWayland Baptist ChurchMemorial EpiscopalNew Covenant TabernacleSt. John AMESt. Martin Church of ChristSt. Cecilia Catholic ChurchBethel Fellowship ChurchGreater Mt.

Looking for a Speaker at Your Church?

If your church is interested in having a service or portion of a service dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness, education, and a scriptural mandate to get involved, we can help! If you are looking for sermons related to HIV, we can provide those too. Contact us for more information.Church Partnership Process. Churches wanting to join this movement, should contact us at info@hopesprings.org  to learn more. The typical pathway to church engagement is:1. Pastoral Leadership Commitment demonstrated by discussions with HopeSprings leadership and participation in the Journey course2. Raising of church awareness/sensitivity through an educational event facilitated by HopeSprings, but promoted by the senior pastor; or a sermon series taught by the senior pastor3. Identification of a church liaison(s) who will serve as the primary contact between HopeSprings and your church4. Identification of a church focus area within the ministry; such as sponsorship of testing at a local agency once/month, mentoring of teen mothers in one of our programs, facilitation of a Bible Study on site at one of our partner agencies, delivering meals to those infected by HIV, etc.5. Hosting of Journey courses on site for interested members of your congregation6. Serving together to transform your hearts and the hearts of those you touch through your efforts.Biblical MandateMicah 6:8Matthew 25:31-46James 1:27James 3:17
