Local Missions

ICCM (Inner City Church of Minneapolis)

ICCM is a ministry that reaches into the lives of those in poverty, addicts, prostitution, and the homeless. CoH has been partnering with them since 2006 and has seen remarkable kingdom fruit come through their ministry. Every Friday night CoH sends a “street team” to work with ICCM on reaching out to the community that surrounds the church. You can learn more at changingourcity.org.

A.I.A. (Athletes in Action)

A.I.A.  is a ministry of CRU and focuses on bringing Jesus to athletes at the college level. In the past 5 years our A.I.A. partner on the U of M campus has seen growth from 30 students to over 300 participating. They are now influencing other schools in bringing Jesus to the athletes of those schools. Recently, they sent missionaries to Puerto Rico to grow AIA in that location.

MI (The Master’s Institute)

MI is a seminary founded in 2001 by Pastor Paul Anderson. Community of Hope has been privileged to have 7 students complete the seminary, and numerous others complete various other levels of leadership, biblical and theological training through participation in various seminary programs. CoH believes MI, with its contextualized heart, head, hands approach is well poised to lead in the future of pastoral preparation. Learn more at miseminary.com.
