True Hope Church is a church founded in Boise over 150 years ago. In the last 10 years the True Hope family of churches has grown by planting one church, adopting another church as our second campus, and are in the process of adopting a third church in Nampa (about 20 miles away from Boise). Our passion and focus is on multiplication throughout Boise, the Treasure Valley and the world.

Our church has been growing steadily for the last 25 years under the leadership of Pastor Bruce Young. Our two campuses had about 720 in attendance, pre-Covid. Currently we have two in-person/online services at the Downtown campus, and two in-person services and one on-line at the Collister campus. Both campuses have a teaching pastor and multiple staff. Recently our Downtown campus youth pastor, Sasha Rasumussen, has been called to transition to our new True Hope campus in Nampa as the lead pastor, accepting the challenge of shepherding this congregation through the adoption process. Sasha's transition has opened the youth minister position at our Downtown campus.

Our church is multi-generational. We believe a thriving church should be attractive to all ages as part of the body of Christ. True Hope church is engaged in the_noemailmunity through our weekly Saturday food bank, our relationship with schools, "The Basement" which is a student clothing ministry, and partnership with our local homeless shelters. Additionally we are involved in the leadership among the City Network which is a group of churches cooperating to plant multiple churches in the area in an effort to reach the rapidly growing Boise area.

Our church is American Baptist by history. We are conservative in theology and in our view of the inspiration and authority of the Bible. We seek to be a multiplying_noemailmunity of people transformed by the Gospel, devoted to God's Word,_noemailmitted to_noemailmunity, and relentless in prayer until our families, neighbors, city and our world know that Jesus is true hope.
