The role: Hope’s Worship Director is responsible for overseeing Hope’s corporate worship services at both sites and cultivating a culture of corporate and personal worship within Hope’s community that reflects our vision, theology, and philosophy of ministry.


Meet Hope Community Church:

In 1999, Uptown Church was looking to plant the first of several daughter churches it wanted to plant in an effort to reach the city of Charlotte by fostering a church planting movement here. In November of 2000,  Uptown asked Mark Upton to draw up the vision for Hope, and he immediately called Matt Guzi to help him with that endeavor. It was time for their dream to come true.

Hope Community Church met for its first public worship in 2002 at the Park Road YWCA with the intent of reaching and serving young urban professionals, college educated singles, young marrieds without children, or new families. In 2007, the church moved to a Korean Church that offered more space for the growing church. In 2013, they moved to a second service at the Olde Providence site.

With continued growth at the Olde Providence site, the building at 4418 Rea Road, previously belonging to Peace Moravian Church, was purchased in 2015. In 2016, Hope Community Church moved the Woodlawn Site to their new South End Site on Griffith Street.

Often when people refer to a “church,” they mean a particular building, but the building is merely the meeting place of the church. The “church” is the people. Hope Community Church is one church, one community of people, who worship on Sunday mornings at two locations. Since they began, Hope’s vision has been to be a church where people, especially those who have been wounded by the church or who are cynical about Christianity, can experience and consider the gospel of grace that Jesus proclaimed.
