Our Services

What are services like?
Our services are real, relaxed, and authentic. We worship God through music (contemporary and traditional), fellowship, giving, prayer, and the Word. Our congregation is made up of men, women, and children of every generation - men and women who love God passionately, love one another deeply, and live life together fully. At Hopewell, we like to say that we LoveWell, LiveWell, and ServeWell. Our worship services are both the culmination of a week lived to the glory of God and the s

What is the community like?
Hopewell is located in a rural, residential neighborhood on the outskirts of Flint, Michigan. We are surrounded by cornfields and family homes, while only being minutes away from several shopping areas.

What if I'm not a Christian?
God desires that all should come to a saving knowledge of Himself. We cling to the truth that Christ tasted death for all so that all who will may be saved. God calls each of us in His own way, in His perfect timing. We welcome all to come and worship with us. Today may be the day of salvation!

Leadership View all

Bud Welton
Lead Pastor

Pastor Bud and his family moved to Flint, Michigan from their Pennsylvania home in August, 2015 to begin their ministry at Hopewell. Both Pastor Bud and his wife Jennifer grew up in Christian homes in rural Pennsylvania. They were married in 2003, and a year later had their first of their two children, Noah and Molly. Bud and Jen homeschool their children, enjoying the privilege of teaching each child to grow into a fully mature expression of God's unique creation. Jen is their primary teacher, having the education, background, passion, and patience for that high calling. She is a truly gifted teacher, and has a unique passion to see that all people honor God with their gifts. Pastor Bud was educated at Liberty University, Eastern Nazarene College, Miami International Theological Seminary, and Christian Leaders Institute. He has served in various lay and vocational ministry positions for 20 years before surrendering to God's call to full-time, pastoral leadership. In an interesting move of God, both Bud and his father entered full-time, vocational ministry in 2015, only months apart. Bud has a passion to lead all people to fully discover and become all that God created them to be. The Word of God teaches that salvation has been paid by Christ at the cross, that Christ tasted death for all men. Scripture also teaches that those who confess Christ as Lord receive that salvation as a free gift, having been called to and created for good works. Bud's prayer and efforts are that all Believers would choose to mature in and through that free gift as an act of worship and obedience, living out God's call to good things and an abundant life.
