As we grapple with the question of who God wants us to be in a secular and divided world, it is important for us to understand and live out God's call for us within the Church. The last year presented many challenges for the Church. It was a messy time in which we disagreed, argued, and even broke fellowship with each other. But it was also a time …
 
Peter calls the Church to honor everyone. However, we live in a time where people treat each other poorly in politics, on the news, online and in real life. Families are often in turmoil because of a lack of respect between parents and children. Employees are often put down by their employers, and employers are often undermined by their employees. …
 
Join us for our latest sermon series in the letter of 1 Peter through which we will have a series of family conversations within Mount Hope. Our goal is to seriously consider what sort of person God wants the Christ-follower to be in a culture that is secular and divided. Our conversations will move past the popular opinions on this matter to explo…
 
At Mount Hope, what excites us most is to see people responding to Jesus, both locally and globally. In this mission to see the Gospel shared and lives transformed, a question we often grapple with is this: "What is our place in this mission?" As Christ followers, we are called to take the good news of the Gospel to every person around the world. H…

Gregg has served multiple roles since he and his wife, Rita, arrived to Boston in 1984. Among these include: urban church planting and pastoring; Missions & Diaspora Ministry Pastor at Mount Hope; and the founding director of the Intercultural Ministries program at Boston’s Emmanuel Gospel Center which has nurtured ministry to and with diaspora peo…
 
We have often heard it said that when one doesn't feel close to God, ask yourself the question, "Who moved?". Even those who have been transformed by the Lord and have walked with Him for some time continue to have questions and still find themselves in the valley at times. As we continue to dive deep into the book of Luke, we understand that as be…
 
Though the technology of GPS has certainly made our lives easier, there are still times when we are following that highlighted blue line that we need to be sure we are paying close attention. Maybe it's dark. Maybe there is a detour or the area is completely new territory to us. Whatever the reason, we need to not just follow, but to follow well. T…
 
In our society, it is not uncommon to hear how important it is to be a leader. There are many books, articles and podcasts on this topic. It's rare that you hear the focus on being a follower. As believers, being a follower actually plays an important role in our everyday lives. So what does it mean to actually be a follower of Jesus? In the book o…
 
Life can be hard. Life can be challenging. Sometimes we are confused or lonely. Other times we feel lost or we are in need of healing. It can be difficult to navigate these times in light of our faith. During our sermon series, Good Dirt, we have met many people along the way who have taught us, through their encounter with Jesus, how to walk out o…
 
We often encounter circumstances that seem absolutely impossible to handle. They seem so weird and out of the ordinary, but have a deep impact on how we live. In situations like this, how do people of faith handle it. As we continue in the Book of Luke, we come across a man who had and extraordinary problem that required an extraordinary solution. …
 
You've heard it said that we are either just coming out of a storm, in the middle of a storm or about to head into one. It is true that storms are a part of this life. However, there are times in our storm that we might wonder where God is. We don't always hear Him clearly and we fear that He doesn't see what we are going through. The disciples kne…

As we move ahead in our Luke Series, Good Dirt, we are introduced to a few women who were with Jesus and are true examples of what it means to be present with him and to carry out His work in our daily lives. These women show us what it means to be intentional an intimate when it comes to our relationship with Jesus. As believers, we are often remi…

It takes work to truly get to know someone. We know that it takes time, conversation and asking questions to truly understand who someone is. In the same way, it can take time and relationship to understand and see who Jesus truly is. And as we do get to see and know Him, how does that impact us? This week as we continue in our sermon series, Good …
 
With the Olympics happening right now, we often hear how this athlete is the best or that athlete is the greatest. But what exactly does it mean to be the greatest? What is the criteria in order to be determined as the greatest? Truth is, these questions are going to be answered differently in the world of the Olympics than they are in the Bible. A…
 
How do you handle life when it seems it isn't going your way? When we encounter moments and circumstances that do not line up with our expectations of my Christian life, we are often left with doubts about our journey, calling, choices, etc. It may be when a tragedy hits or when we pray for someone that we hope will be healed and they are not. We a…
 
There are times when we see someone's faith and it truly amazes us. Maybe that person stepped out of their comfort zone to follow the Lord's leading, moved to a far away place for a call to missions or started a ministry. Often, we stand in awe at these moments of faith and obedience in someone's life. But what kind of faith is God Himself amazed a…
 
In churches all around the country and around the world, you will hear the Word of God preached. It comes to people through the words of people on the streets, through friends and family, through all sorts of media. However, with the Word all around us, why is it that only a few people respond to it? How do you and I ensure that we are responding t…
 
As we look around at what is happening around us today, it is easy to ask ourselves, "What is wrong with this world?" But maybe it isn't the world, but rather, the heart of mankind that lives in the world. The truth is, all that we see happening around us has to do what is coming from the heart. Jesus, in the book of Luke, teaches us the importance…
 
We often encounter people who treat us unfairly. Whether it's an unkind word, a slight in a relationship, a coworker who badmouths you in order to get ahead, or a family member who treated you in horrible way, these things have a way of shaking us. In moments like this, it is easy to treat them in kind. It is easy to be unfair and unkind to those w…
 
A desire many of us have in common is the desire for joy. We work hard to live lives that bring us joy. However, to achieve this, we often pursue the things that make us happy. The reality is, this happiness is often short-lived and leave us wanting and working for more. We also realize that happiness is fickle. It is so often driven by our circums…
 
We've all experienced circumstances in life that cause us concern, make us a worry, or maybe even truly shake us. So, how do we live a life that is unshakeable when circumstances are difficult? How do we build a solid foundation so that we are able to stand firmly? This week, as we dive back into the book of Luke, we take a look at scripture where …
 
This last year has drawn people into taking sides on virtually every issue about race, health, politics, and much more. In this chaos what role does the Church play? Do we choose sides? If so, how do we decide what side to be on or are we called to something different? In such a world, how do you and I live? Join us as we consider what God call us …
 
We often miss things that happen around us because they happen in ways that we weren't expecting. Often when God moves, He moves in ways we do not expect. He does things in the lives of His people in ways they do not see coming. But the danger is that we as Christ followers miss God moving. How do we prevent this from happening? Join us as we conti…
 
Out of necessity, we are now able to close deals, see the doctor, checkin with our families, attend concerts from home. This last year has helped us hone our remote work and remote relationship abilities. However, there are somethings that require us to show up in person. There are somethings that require a personal touch. The mission that Jesus ca…
 
When we are ill, so often the symptoms are not the real issue. There is something within us that is causing us to become sick. While we often seek healing for the symptoms, the doctor seeks to fix the underlying problem. When we come to Jesus, He always seeks to fix the root problem. What does that look like in our lives? Join us as we continue in …
 
Don't the movies of the underdog captivate us? We find ourselves engrossed in their story and pulling for each and every one that is on the team. In each story of the underdog, there is a common thread. We watch as the team of individuals becomes one team with one common goal. As we continue along in the book of Luke, this week we observe a group o…
 
God has done some incredible things in our lives. We all have stories of the change and the transformation we have experienced after meeting Jesus. You and I aren't meant to keep that to ourselves. But how and where do we take our story? Jesus had a story to tell. He went from city to city telling it. Join us as we look at how Jesus took His story …
 
We often take what's ours and what's familiar for granted. It may be the latest devices that when we got it, we were so excited to have, but now it's familiar and tired. Or the relationship that we're in. When it first started, it was exciting and full of life, but now it seems like we've settled into a rut. Familiar things are often taken for gran…
 
Life is full of interruptions. There isn't usually a day that goes by that an interruption doesn't show itself in one way or another. Wherever we face them, at work or at home, we have particular reactions and responses to them. But what about disruptions? Do we have the same response to disruptions that we do to interruptions? Is there even a diff…
 
Throughout life we find ourselves in many different situations. Within those circumstances, we think we know our reaction or at least how we should respond. However, it isn't always that simple. Sometimes who we think we are doesn't match up to who we actually are. For the past couple weeks we have taken a look into the book of Luke and have learne…

Have you ever looked back at life and wondered how you missed it? The "It" could be a relationship, or a financial decision, a career choice, or something that where you wish you had made a different choice. We all miss things that are in front of us at times. Some are inconsequential but others are life altering. In our new series, we take a look …
 
We all know men and women who are well respected in their communities and have accomplished much. Some of them within the church world and some outside. But what happens when we hear of the failures they've had in their behavior or in their character? We are broken when we hear that they were living a double life, presenting themselves as respectab…

We all enjoy some good shortcuts. Whether it's on the road, or at work, or at home, we enjoy the shortcuts that help us save time. However while shortcuts claim immediate gain in the short term, sometimes, these can be harmful and may create more work than we originally thought. In our lives as Christ followers, we are not immune from the effect of…
 
We jump back into the Book of Luke as we explore the Gospel and how it speaks into our culture and the challenges we face today. In this series we explore the temptations that Jesus faced. Scripture reminds us that as He faced them, He never gave in. How do you and I follow His example and stand in the face of temptations as well? Join us for our n…
 
One way to solve a dilemma or when you are between a rock and a hard place is to look for the third way. There are times in our life when we have two options in front of us and neither of them looks appealing, in times like that we think there has got to be another option. When we see the contemporary issues around our day, we may sometimes feel li…
 
In this "new normal" where social distancing is the norm, we've had to redefine many of the ways we interact with each other. One of the casualties of this redefinition is our effort to have community with each other. However, the need for community has never been greater. A foundational part of our Christian walk is to be in community with each ot…
