More about us...
Mt. Hope has a long history, beginning in 1835 when the church was established in the area known as Red Hill, and then Waxpool, and now Ashburn, in Loudoun County, VA. Established as Mt. Hope Baptist Church, the church served the local community of farmers and in 1853 moved to its current site nearby. The current church sanctuary building was completed in 1899. An education building, foyer, and outdoor pavilion were added over the years. The church has met continuously since 1835 until the present day, congregating faithfully even in the midst of events such as the Civil War.
Most recently, Mt. Hope selected Chris Eads as pastor in October 2021, following the retirement of pastor John Zoller who faithfully served from 1996 until 2021.
Mt. Hope is blessed with a beautiful property bordering Beaverdam Reservoir, and has shared its facilities over the years with several smaller churches and other organizations. Currently, Mt. Hope opens its facilities to Alcoholic Anonymous and the Boy Scouts of America, hosts outdoor events with other local churches, and maintains a community garden during the summer months.
More than 100 area residents currently call Mt. Hope their church home. We come together to worship the Lord, learn more about Him and His desires for us, enjoy community with fellow believers, and serve our wider community. We hope you will come and be a part too!
