Origin of In Christ New Hope Ministry, Inc.

Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Pastor Roger L. Breedlove and his wife, Minister Madell H. Breedlove, founded In Christ New Hope Ministry, Inc. in the city of Rochester, NY.

Given the mandate to “Minister to the whole man; spirit, soul and body,” the first ministry services were held on April 12, 1998 at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church (640 Brooks Avenue, Rochester NY). On January 14, 2001, the ministry moved to its current location at 155 Pinnacle Road in Rochester, NY (near the Henrietta neighborhood).

In Christ New Hope Ministry has a variety of outreach services and ministries, ranging from youth and young adult worship and Christian activities, to outreach services for drug- and alcohol-addicted persons. For its seventh anniversary, In Christ hosted Drs. Frederick K.C. and Betty Price and introduced hundreds to salvation over a 2-day revival. In 2006, God breathed “The Believers Meeting” into existence and this 3-day teaching continues each year.

Our Worship service takes place on Sundays at 9:30AM. Bible Study takes place on Wednesdays at Noon and 7PM. The doors to our 10,000 square foot facility opened on December 18, 2011 and the dedication was held on May 6, 2012.
