Welcome to our

Apex Campus

Even though we started as the Holly Springs Campus, our permanent location is right over the border in Apex. As one of the fastest growing areas in the Triangle, our campus at Apex is thriving with new people coming every week.

We believe in providing relevant, Bible-based teaching and engaging worship for our people as well as great programing for kids of all ages. Our goal is to love people where they are, connect them to God and help build a community in support of one another.

Apex Campus Pastor

Doug Stride

Doug Stride, the Apex Campus Pastor, oversees both the campus and the staff at Apex.  Doug grew up just outside of Toronto, Canada where he came to know Christ at an early age.  After graduating from North Central Bible College in Minneapolis, MN, he served as a worship pastor back in Ontario for eight years before heading to Uganda, East Africa. There, he joined the leadership team of Watoto Church.  Since coming to Hope in 2012 and serving in a variety of capacities, he is now excited to be the Apex Campus Pastor. He loves getting a chance to ignite the church’s passion to “to reach the Triangle and change the world.”  Doug and his wife, Dawn, have three children: Brennan, Garrison and Milaena.

Common Grounds is available on Sunday mornings during services and provides hospitality for campus events. We invest in local suppliers for our coffee and bakery needs.  We serve hand-crafted beverages, a variety of baked goods and more. Crafted with love by a team of volunteers, we like to think it’s more than just a common cup of coffee.
