About Beacon of Hope

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

It was started in 2014 and 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 was our Associate Pastor until June of 2022.

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.

Our meetings are also on Facebook Live, YouTube (Beacon of Hope Church Martha's Vineyard) and MVTV Sundays mornings at 11 (and

AN UNUSUAL NOTE: We are looking for a new meetingplace and worship facility.

If you can help, please contact us. 

We also welcome your prayers in this regard.

Thank you!


"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given."

Isaiah 9:6
