Cultural Harmony Focus

We recognize, engage, and celebrate diverse cultures for the display of the Kingdom of God.

Minneapolis is beautifully diverse—providing a wonderful opportunity for us to learn from many unique perspectives.

Minneapolis is also one of the most contentious cultural spaces in America. Amid starkly opposing viewpoints that are fueled by a constant influx of news and social media, navigating the current climate feels more challenging than ever. Hope Academy believes that God’s love has the power to create unity across cultures, ethnicities, income levels, and political perspectives.
