Serving Christ by fulfilling the Great Commission.
About Us

A little about New Hope

   We are a family here! We do not consider ourselves religious we are followers of Christ who want to love this community while showing them the love that Christ has for them. We are here to serve not to be served or judge. 

   Don't have any of what use to be called "church clothes" don't worry. Even the pastor wears jeans every once in a while! We are a come as you are Church because that is how God calls us "just as we are"!

     God has blessed us over the years and now as we are nearing our 100th year here in Dickinson we are praying to show our community that God is still relevant today. All are accepted and loved as Christ loves us. We strive to be a church where all feel welcome and call our community of believers home.

     We have a wonder mixed service, mixing the hymns that many have grown up on and incorporating the new praise and worship songs. We are looking for leaders for our music program as well as our children and teens. 

     Please stop in for a visit we would love to have you. We have hot coffee or cocoa waiting and would love to worship with you.

Pastor John & Nikki Strand

     I have been a Nazarene since I was a child, I grew up in a military family and have lived in the mid-west and eastern part of the United States. I have also served in the Military myself, the U.S. Air Force and the Georgia Army National Guard. It was while I was deployed to Afghanistan in 2009-10 that I felt God call me into ministry. 
     Once I got home from my deployment, I began my studies to become a pastor. I began working at GEICO and was moved to MN were I got involved in the Prairie Lakes District, and was welcomed with open arms. My wife and I feel very blessed to have been called to New Hope and pray that we can be of service to the Church and to the community. We pray that you will join us in fellowship as we walk in the Lord and grow in Him together.
