Our Values


We lovingly welcome people from all walks of life.

“Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.” Romans 15:7 (NLT)


We communicate Biblical truth without compromise. 

“Love should always make us tell the truth. Then we will grow in every way and be more like Christ, the head.” Ephesians 4:15 (CEV)


We are committed to ministry through accountability.

“But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.” 1 John 2:5 (NKJV)


We willingly and enthusiastically give our maximum effort in all we do.

“And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God…” Colossinas 3:23 (MSG)


Previously known as Central Parkway Ministries, our nearly 100 year old congregation was getting older and at risk of becoming a dying church. But in 2012, Pastor Dallas and Holly Howard answered God's call to move from their successful Georgia church and take on the challenge of turning a near century old church and making it younger for the sake of reaching the lost. Once an inward seeking church, the Howards brought new life and passion- reaching out to those around us. We eventually changed our name from Central Parkway Ministries to Bridge of Hope Church, where we believe that we exist to become a bridge to others- connecting people to Jesus Christ and to each other. Soon, we were ready to move out of downtown Cincinnati and in to the suburbs to start afresh. For three years we have become a portable church, meeting in a small movie theatre called the Kenwood Theatre. Since July 2020, we are currently meeting out of Church on Fire in Harrison, Ohio.
