We exist to bring forth the creative gifts in all of us by providing a comfortable, inspiring, hope-filled space for 'creators to create' in the areas of visual art, writing, music, and dance.

Welcome

Many years ago, Pastor Josh Huisman of New Hope Community Church had an idea to create a comfortable space that could simply be used by creators to create. He envisioned a place where musicians could strengthen their skills and record their ideas, a place where dancers could have room to grow, and the vision continues to be built upon.

OUR MISSION

We exist to bring forth the creative gifts in all of us by providing a positive, inspiring, Christ centered space for creators to create in the areas of visual art, dance, music, and writing.

OUR VISION

Create Hope Studios is a creative arts ministry of New Hope Community Church, with the purpose of guiding children and adults to use their creative talents to worship and serve in God’s greater kingdom.

OUR VALUES

In accordance with 1 Corinthians 10:31, “Whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.” Create Hope Studios believes our gifts and talents are God given and should be used to glorify the Lord. As the crown of God’s creation, our creative pieces will bring honor to Christ and will be respectful in nature to ourselves and our neighbors.
