Our Hope Story

How it all started...

New Found Hope Community Church was founded by Rev. Ray Anthony Ruffin Jr in October of 2017.  We held our first worship service in the conference room of “ Great Lakes Ace,” (the employer of Pastor Ruffin) in Farmington Hills, MI where we served for one year.
 Our core group consisted of several seasoned saints and a few others who were new to the kingdom.  
Beforehand, the Lord gave Pastor Ruffin the vision to plant a church in Redford, MI.  While awaiting a suitable location in Redford, the Lord saw fit for us to partner with Pastor Maddox and Forest Park Baptist Church, located right next door to “Great Lakes Ace.”  Unbeknownst to New Found Hope, Forest Park Baptist Church was willing to open their doors and allowed us to share their space.  On the first Sunday in August of 2018, we were finally able to have our worship service and bible study in the same location.
We would go on to pray and encourage one another during our small group sessions. Then, the Lord blessed us to relocate to the community He had shown us.  On Sunday, July 7, 2019, we moved to John Pierce Middle school in the heart of Redford.  
We hold true to our mission of “knowing Jesus and making Jesus known.”  During our short time of building God’s Kingdom, many have come to know Christ and be baptized.
We give glory to God for all of the things He has done.  New Found Hope Community Church is making moves!
