“Our missionaries carry our hearts

where we cannot go”

(Melinda DeFeo)

Devlin states, "My target audience are trafficked girls  and women, widows and orphans and my target places are war zones-Syria, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Gaza; the forgotten the neglected, the marginalized, the broken, the persecuted-the needs are great and my two organizations, REDEEM! and WidowsAndOrphans.info are offering practical assistance to those in need.  My Jewish colleagues called this 'Tikkun Olam' or 'Repairing the World'".

Operation Christmas Child

Part of Samaritan's Purse, this annual ministry easily and joyfully gathers and puts toys, necessities, and the gospel into the hands of needy children around the world. This year, Beacon of Hope was able to help them with 80 boxes! (that's Melissa V and Melinda D pictured).


About Beacon of Hope

 Beacon of Hope is a non-denominational Christian church on Martha's Vineyard. 

It was started in 2014 by a group of believers in Jesus Christ who were called to start

a new fellowship for Islanders and visitors alike.

After setting an excellent foundation,  Rev. Don Bradley retired as the lead pastor. 

Rev. Greg Bar returned to the Island in January of 2020 to pastor the church

(having ministered on M.V. previously from 1986 through 2004),

and Rev. John McCormick is our Associate Pastor. 

As a body of believers we are committed to following Jesus every day with integrity, loving our neighbors, caring for those in need, studying His word, worshipping and praying together, and growing in His grace and wisdom. Our Book is the Bible, our Lord is Jesus Christ, our spiritual family is everyone who is a Christian, and our neighbors are the world.

We recognize that we have not yet "arrived", but are on a journey

as disciples (students) of Jesus Christ,

and we invite you to join us.

We invite you to visit any one of our meetings, check us out on Facebook and contact us there, or by phone (774-310-3343) or email (beaconofhopechurchmv@gmail.com).

You may also email the pastor directly at beaconofhopepastormv@gmail.com.

Our meetings are also on YouTube (hopemv) and MVTV Sundays mornings at 11 (and mvtv.org).


"He is the one

all the prophets testified about, saying that

everyone who believes in Him

will have their sins forgiven through His Name."

Acts 10:43
