About Us

HoldToHope is a Church founded in Murfreesboro, TN built on the call of God to share the Gospel with all who are willing to listen.

Who Are We?

We are a family of three: a father, a mother, and a daughter. We were called to show God’s glory to the spiritually dead. When we could no longer ignore the call, we went out on January 10, 2018, and began. We want to change the world. We firmly believe that starts with changing yourself. So we changed our sloth-like behavior and did something. We searched for one person that we could help. One person that we could help change their life. One person that we could give HOPE. That’s what our goal is, bring hope to the world. Because HOPE is the foundation to success… to change… to growth… to life… to love. We want to spread HOPE around the world, even if that’s only starting with one person at a time.

From there, we went on to minister to other parts of the world, to be specific, The Cayman Islands. We were able to bring hope in what felt like a hopeless time to a church we are very familiar with. Now we are back home and ready to take the next step. Spreading The Word of God with as many people as we can. This is a long journey that we hope you all will take with us.
