The goal of Mission Outreach is to engage people in service for the purpose of transforming lives, of both the serving and the served, in the hope of Jesus Christ.

Our Mission Teams Include:

Adults sign up to mentor one student in the HSE school district and meet with them at their school weekly. The organization matches adults with students who have asked to have a mentor based on a set of specific criteria. It is the mission of Youth Mentoring Initiative to partner with the Hamilton Southeastern School Corporation and provide specialized mentor programs for students that encourage the development of personal values. YMI trains and provides mentors for students at HSE schools in grades 5-12. New Hope supports YMI both financially and with mentors.

Every Sunday this group serves a hot lunch, hands out clothing and other necessities to the homeless of downtown Indianapolis.  They also spend time and pray with the homeless.  The day begins at 11:30 a.m. until they run out of supplies. Click HERE to sign up or email Ray and Lori Miller at  for more information in how you can support this amazing mission they’ve created. 

This team trains and runs the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon or Half-Marathon each year in November.  As they train, they raise money for the Team World Vision organization which builds wells and water pipelines in Africa. As a result of their efforts the wells provide clean drinking water to people who’ve never had such a luxury before. Training starts at the beginning of July for the Indy Monumental Marathon and Half-Marathon that typically takes place in early November. To join the team and register for the race or send questions to team leader Tiffany Schlueter at .  

 

The Senior Smiles team visits nursing centers and retirement villages in Fishers several times a year to bring smiles to the residents. There's trick-or-treating before Halloween, singing Christmas carols in December and handing out Easter goodies in the spring. This is a mission team for all ages. Our senior friends enjoy seeing the kids and talking with the adults. Currently looking for a new team leader.  Please contact Susan Kinney at   if you have any questions about this mission opportunity or would like to lead the team.

Servants At Work (S.A.Ws) is an all-volunteer ministry that builds wheelchair ramps aimed at providing the handicapped, elderly, and infirmed individuals with access to their world while remaining in their homes. Our volunteers primarily work on Saturday mornings to construct the ramps on site; however, other opportunities exist during the week to survey, pre-fab and finish the construction. If you join the group, you can sign up for as many builds as you’d like, but you’re not committed to every weekend. If you have carpentry skills or are good with power tools that’s a bonus, but not a requirement! Find out more about SAW’s at their website or email team leader Tom Lipinski to sign-up at  or 317-823-9346.  

 

This team responds to regional crisis in a way that seems most appropriate. It can be collecting emergency supplies, or money and delivering to an area, or organizing a group to help in the area affected by a disaster or crisis. To report a crisis or to volunteer please contact team leader Cindy Holladay at .

The New Hope Odd Job Squad tackles a wide variety of household and yard projects that are too difficult or expensive for people to complete themselves.  These could include but are not limited to:  home repairs and cleaning; yard work; painting; landscaping; furniture repair, etc. If you are able to help with any of these projects, please volunteer by contacting Tom Lipinski at   or 317-823-9346.

Ikaika and Dori Hobbs

Ikaika and Dori Hobbs serve as missionaries with Youth With A Mission in Maztlan, Mexico. Dori is from Indianapolis and they visit New Hope when they are home. They are involved the community outreach ministries like Homes of Hope, Remnant Skate, the Carnaval outreach and the Spring Break youth camp. They play an active role in the discipleship of the young leaders in these particular areas and are passionate about seeing them reach their potential and beyond. Their heart is to see transformation in all areas of society, from the family and education to business and government. Wherever God takes them and however He does it they are committed to seeing Mazatlan, Mexico and the Nations transformed.

New Hope supports their ministry financially, and hopes to take a mission trip to TWAM in the near future.  If you'd like to know more about the Hobbs, check out their website. 

 

 Typically, the 3rd Sunday of every month a group of New Hope volunteers travels to a downtown Indianapolis apartment building to serve and enjoy a meal with the residents residing in the building, but may vary based on circumstances. The residents are formally homeless and the goal of the group is to encourage and support these new residents as they transition to a life off of the streets. For more information or to signup, contact team leader Betsy Binkholder at   

 

Our prison ministry team goes into Pendleton Prison 2 weekends a year to share the love of Christ, pray, worship, share meals and cookies with the offenders.

You can participate by

  • Being on the team that goes into the prison
  • Baking cookies for the offenders before the weekend (a specific recipe to follow)
  • Donating money to “Kairos of Indiana” through New Hope’s church office.
  • You many also attend the “Closing Ceremony” at the prison on Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. This is a true blessing to witness!

Kairos is a ministry of Christ’s love, delivered by His family to inmates at Pendleton & other correctional facilities in the Indianapolis area. It is a 3 ½ day weekend where a team from the outside enters maximum security facilities to bring a planned Christian experience, lots of food, and most importantly non-judgmental love to offenders who many have never experienced such over powering love. We discuss, share, sing, pray, eat, listen and show love and respect to all. 

This team's goal is to fund and build water purification systems to be used in areas where clean water is not available. Partnering with Fountains of Hope (FoH), New Hope plans to take adults on mission trips to the most marginalized places in the world. Fountains of Hope (FoH) not only installs water purification systems, but provides health and hygiene education, especially during times of disaster or emergency. For more information please contact Scott Tornquist at

 New Hope Presbyterian Church's annual Day of Caring is held each year in mid-September. The Day of Caring is a special day of ministry, where every member of New Hope (along with guests) will have the opportunity to practice Arms of Love, which is one of New Hope's Six Marks of a Disciple. We will not have church service on that Sunday, rather we send hundreds of volunteers from our congregation to serve the community.  There are volunteer opportunities for every person, regardless of age or ability! For more information contact Mark Thacker at 317-727-8611 or  

New Hope supports the "Come to Me" Food Pantry of Hamilton County with our ongoing collection of food and other needed items. Look for the shopping cart in the hallway outside the café.

They are located at 9691 E. 116th Street, Fishers.  Enter the double doors facing Ikea Way. For a list of current needs please visit their website at: www.fishersumc.org/FoodPantry.

Each fall, The Christmas Caring Team identifies families or children in Central Indiana who may not have the ability to buy Christmas presents.  Everyone is then given the opportunity to sign up and buy gifts for these families in need.  If you would like to volunteer or know of families in need, please reach out to one of our co-team leaders Amanda Wilson at  or Ellen Riley-Davis at

This team meets monthly to make fleece blankets and pillows to be used by many non-profits and hospitals throughout the area, as well various craft projects for our own Children’s Ministry and various mission teams.
