On March 14th, a member vote was conducted per the constitution in calling Daniel Powell to be Senior Pastor. His call was confirmed by 100% of the members present that voted and he has graciously accepted that call.
The Elders of NHBC, the leadership team, the pastor search team proclaim our thankfulness and praise to our God for His faithful leading and sovereign will in bringing Daniel Powell to lead the Lord’s church here at New Hope as Senior Pastor.
Our family here at New Hope has been through a lot this past year, but our heart and desire has been to faithfully proclaim His word and hold fast to His name. Thank you, Paul, for your commitment to proclaiming His word to us. Our God has faithfully protected and sustained His church.
Your leadership team is committed to fulfilling our mandate as a church in the mission He has called us to: “New Hope Baptist Church exists to proclaim God’s Word from the Bible in order to grow as fellowship into mature believers who love, worship, and serve Jesus Christ.”
Thank you for your commitment to NHBC in your prayers, service, and support.
Please be in prayer for the Powell family as they begin the transition from their current work to join us here in Nampa. Paul Benzel will continue to preach through John, hoping to complete John’s Gospel by late August, early September. Daniel and his family are hoping to be in Nampa and begin serving at the church at the beginning of August.
We are excited for what God is doing here at New Hope! Check out the card below to read a little more about Daniel and his family.

AWANA began on October 7th! We are excited to be able to provide AWANA for the kids again this year, and look forward to helping your children learn more about Christ in a safe and fun environment! This year will look a little different as we try to comply with social distancing and healthy social practices. We will have a modified version of AWANA with a cap on how many kids we register. New Hope members and our returning AWANA families will have preference and all others will be placed on a waitlist and will be registered on a first-come basis as we have room. Currently we still have space for more kids!!
A few things to note:
AWANA starts on October 7th and will run from 7-8:10pm each Wednesday
Snacks will not be provided for the kids
Parents will need to come into the building to check kids in for AWANA and also to pick them up afterwards in the sanctuary at 8:10pm
The cost is $40.00 per child with a $100.00 max per family. Please bring your AWANA dues on the first night and let us know if you need to make payment arrangements
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kelly Jackson at email@example.com.
