Chelsea McHenry

I have been a member of HOPE since October of 2013. The diversity and authenticy I
experienced at HOPE were some of the first things that drew me to get involved here.
The HOPE group I am a part of has become my family here in SoCal. Working with
students and youth has been a great joy of mine. Currently, I work at a university in the
Student Success department, and I work here at HOPE as the Youth Director. My hope is
that the youth connected to HOPE will have a safe place to wrestle with their big
questions about the kingdom of God, and my prayer is they will grow into adults who are
followers of Christ. I know planting those seeds is essential in the present, and I love
getting to partner with them on their journeys. Through my time here, I’ve helped with
various ministries including the worship team, hospitality, youth, and small groups. I
have loved seeing the ways the people of HOPE desire to work together for the kingdom
of God through service and fellowship. Outside of church, I love hanging out with
friends, swinging in my hammock, playing games, traveling back to Pennsylvania to visit
my family, and discovering new places. I am looking forward to the ways God will move
in the lives of the people in our church this year!
