Hope House

Our Vision

The lobby of our Hope Building has always been a great place for us to meet up, hang out, and connect as a church. We love community and we love coffee, so we combined the two and made our lobby even better!

We started a ministry to brew craft coffee and update our Hope lobby. We put in new furniture and started updating the decor and lighting. But plot twist! We are now upgrading and moving our coffee and community over to the Harvest Building, where we will continue working on creating a welcoming space for our community hangouts.

Our vision remains the same: to create a collaborative space for VOH family and friends to slow down, build community, and enjoy a good cup of coffee.

Our Name

The name Hope House appropriately summarizes the history and mission of VOH.

We were able to purchase our Hope Building in 2014 through the efforts and collective generosity of our entire church. Our English congregation moved in and in this past half decade, many of us have come to call this place home.

As we continue on, we want to carry a remembrance of where we came from and where we are going. We want many more to call this place home and we are a house that is bringing hope to our city, the nations, and the world.


Our soft launch kicked off on Sunday, March 17, 2019 and we have enjoyed the process of getting things up and running and also being able to roll out new drinks and offer more than just coffee! As of September 2019, we are moving from the Hope Building over to the Harvest Building (yay for a bigger space!) so that coffee can be available at Harvest as we transition to two services. Renovations will be rolling out over the next few months and because we are in a different space than originally planned, our timeline for settling in will now take a little longer! We're still working out kinks and we appreciate your support and patience in all of this.

Early Backer Details

We are so moved to be witnesses of our community's togetherness and generosity.

From February 3rd through February 10th, we held a quick 7-day fundraiser. We were aiming to collect $3000 to get started but our church community contributed just over $10,000 towards this project!
