Winner: Hope Lutheran Church
Location: Two Fargo locations and one West Fargo location
How does it feel to win again this year?
“To God be all the glory,” said Pastor Paul Nynas. “We’re very grateful and very humbled by the honor. God is great.”
What do you think draws people to Hope Lutheran as a place to grow spiritually?
“There are lots of great congregations in Fargo and we just try the best that we can when it comes to our Biblical mission to encourage all people to know the love of Jesus Christ,” Nynas said. “We work as a staff and congregation to keep laser focused on who God has called us to be in this world.”
Do you have any new programs or worship options you’re offering?
“We launched a third campus at Liberty Middle School on Sunday morning at 9:30,” Nynas said. “Our mission to encourage all people to know the love of Jesus Christ so one of the things that drives us is that we don’t exist for ourselves; we exist as a church to be a blessing to the world. We’ve experienced tremendous growth at our south campus and as we were looking at all the folks bringing their kids to worship, they were coming from West Fargo so we felt the time was right to reach out and begin something new in West Fargo.”
