Hope Boulder is part of the Foursquare Church, a movement that began in the 1920’s in Los Angeles, CA. It started as a single congregation from the ministry of Rev. Aimee Semple McPherson. Her ministry was characterized by creativity in the arts and media, breaking racial barriers, caring for the poor, ministering in healing, and proclaiming faith in Christ. Over time, Foursquare has grown to over 1,850 churches throughout the United States and over 75,000 around the world.
