Two-year-old church brought people to Christ
Mission USA news release
New Hope Church in West Valley City, Utah, a two-year old church plant supported by Mission USA, the USMB church planting and church renewal ministry, the Pacific District Conference and key stakeholders, has closed.
The church had its final service March 4, the day on which Josh Gonzales, lead planter, resignation took effective.
Several factors led up to the closure, including declining attendance and a desire for the Gonzales family to concentrate on their own needs. Members of New Hope have been encouraged to find a church home at one of the other USMB churches in the Salt Lake City area.
“It’s not easy to announce that a church plant has closed,” says Don Morris, Mission USA director. “During its short tenure, the church witnessed several people become followers of Jesus. For that we give thanks!”
