New Hope Fellowship, (formerly Harvester of Souls Int’l Ministries, HOSIM) originated as an evangelical outreach out of Zebulun Jesus is Lord Barbershop in Lakewood, NJ on September 29, 2006.

This ministry has its roots in a Wednesday evening bible study that was formed to instruct and equip the many new believers who were being led to the Lord through the preaching that took place during normal business hours.

A Sunday service was then added to the long-standing bible study/prayer meeting and the church officially launched on September 30, 2007. 

In 2014, one of the founding pastors, (Nicole Rosato) went on to be with the Lord. Along with other structural changes that came with this great loss for the church, the Lord began to fine tune the vision of the church, leading to the church becoming New Hope Fellowship. Although the name has changed, the mission of the church remains the same. That mission is to share with others the love, joy, fulfillment and radical transformation that comes from knowing

our purpose

New Hope Fellowship is a community of every day people following the way of Jesus. Our lives have been radically changed by the love of Christ and we exist to share this love with all people in all places. At New Hope, we don’t simply want people to come to church, we want people to be the church everywhere they go. 


Our Mission

Helping people grow closer to God through an encounter with his son Jesus.


Our Values



At the heart of the Christian faith is the Good News that through the Risen Christ God is restoring all things to Himself. For centuries, the church has always engaged with the Scriptures for the purpose of knowing and experiencing this Good News in a transformative way. We believe all of Scripture points us to Jesus, and that Scripture is only read accurately when it is read in a way that leads us to a Jesus-shaped life and a Jesus-shaped understanding of God’s heart. Our goal is to teach the Scriptures in a way that points people to the Good News of Jesus so that they can grow in their love for God and in their love for others, so that our world would be a better place.



New Hope Fellowship is committed to building real, authentic relationships. Everybody who walks through our doors is considered a family member – a member of the Body of Christ. Our hope is that New Hope can be a place where people connect deeply with other like-minded individuals and form healthy friendships that will last a lifetime. Our priority is to create the kind of environment where this can happen. All of us need encouragement, advice, love, and intimate friendship, and there is no better place to find that than here.



One of the most important beliefs that Christians hold to is that God is love. Jesus – who is the visible image of the invisible God – exemplified this love by laying his life down for us on the cross. He also taught us that there are two commandments that stand out above the rest: love God and love people. This is why we are committed to loving our community, because following the path of Jesus means following the path of love. As a church, we challenge ourselves to live out this commitment in the places where we live, work, and play. We are always looking for opportunities to be a blessing to other people. We want to be an answer to Jesus’s prayer: “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Loving our community isn’t just a part of what we do, it’s the heart of everything we do. We exist for this purpose.

Our love and passion to serve Jesus is what brings us together, and it’s the reason the church started. We strive to spread the love, and life changing truths found in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
