Our story

On Aug 14, 2011 a trumpet was blown, it was a clarion call to all who were hungry and wanted more of God. That trumpet was the announcement of Hope City House of Prayer. From day 1 we have been on a mission to call our city and generation back to the heart of God.

Our founder and lead Pastor, Brian Williams stepped out by faith, not sure what he was getting himself into when he said yes to the call, but from day 1, God has marked Hope City with His tangible presence. Thousands of testimonies have come in over the years of people’s lives being restored and hope renewed in Jesus Christ. As the call continues to echo many years later, we have seen incredible growth. Each year our ministry has doubled in attendance and giving. On April 21st 2014, after only 30 months of existence, Hope City purchased its first property at 3330 El Paso, Dr. The 40,000 square foot facility situated on 12 acres of land is the current and future home of the Hope City school of ministry.

As a community, we believe deeply in the value of covenantal partnership. We have sister churches and covenant family all around the nation as members of the Gate Network, a global interdenominational family of Senior Pastors, Churches, and Church Planters, who share like passion, spiritual and missional DNA as well as theological persuasion. As such, The GATE Network fellowship is a conglomerate and covenant family of ministry practitioners who have aimed to fulfill the typically deemed “Great Commission” as described by  the Lord in Matthew 28:19 with two primary objectives and drives: to transform cities and disciple nations.

Also, as apart of Burn24/7 Global we are unified with brothers and sisters all over the world. The heart of the Burn 24-7 is first and foremost, the passionate pursuit for the presence of God. We gather, regardless of denominational affiliation, to cry out to God night and day for an awakening in the church, an unprecedented global harvest of souls and the transformation of entire cities. We believe the Burn 24-7 is an expression and fulfillment of the restoration of David’s Tabernacle (Amos 9:11 and Acts 15:16).
