Morrisville, North Carolina is more than just a commuter hub for Research Triangle Park (RTP), it’s a thriving, growing town in its own right. Real people. Real families. Real concerns. As an independent church, Hope Community is committed to serving the unique needs of the people and families of Morrisville and we’d love to have you join us on Sunday mornings. It’s a great time to get plugged into the church as we’re setting down roots in this community. Come as you are to be a part of what God’s doing.
On Sundays, you’ll find a welcoming atmosphere, gourmet coffee and pastries, awesome programs for kids of all ages, engaging worship and relevant, Bible-based teaching.
– Doug Stride, Morrisville campus pastor
Doug Stride oversees the Morrisville campus and staff. 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 Worship Pastor back in Ontario for eight years before heading to Uganda, East Africa where he joined the leadership team of Watoto Church. Since coming to Hope in 2012 and serving in a variety of capacities, he is excited to now be both Global Hope Director and Morrisville Campus Pastor – igniting the church’s passion to ‘be the change’ both locally and around the world. Doug and his wife, Dawn, have three children, Brennan, Garrison, and Milaena.
