Less than three months into its existence, Hope City Community Church is already making an impact on the city of Crestview.
The church, under the direction of Pastor Josh Neel, meets each Sunday at Shoal River Middle School at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.
Church leaders and people of faith from across the community gathered at the Old Spanish Trail Park Amphitheater the 2022 National Day of Prayer and Blessing of the City.
Crestview Mayor JB Whitten read a proclamation stating that May 5, 2022, was in fact the National Day of Prayer, an American event that was first held in 1952 under a proclamation signed by President Harry S. Truman.
Proverbs 29:18a in the King James Bible states, “Where there is no vision the people perish.”
Pastor Geoff Prows and his congregation at Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church in Baker have a vision to reach not only Baker and the surrounding communities in North Okaloosa County, but to reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Nestled at the end of a winding driveway in Baker in is a place of rebirth for women suffering from addictions and substance abuse.
The place, Saving Grace Women’s Home, offers hope found in the redeeming grace of Jesus Christ.
Each woman has a story that is similar yet different.

It was the worst news I could get as an atheist: my agnostic wife had decided to become a Christian. Two words shot through my mind. The first was an expletive; the second was “divorce.”
Eugene Strickland has been the Okaloosa Baptist Association Director of Missions for more than 30 years.
In that time, he has seen some of the great disasters and tragedies of our time.
And during the time of need, he’s seen the people of Okaloosa County, from every denomination, as well as those without a church affiliation, step up.
