A shared purpose.
Welcome to Bristol Hope Assembly! We are a church in Bristol Borough which was founded in 1928 with a rich history of 90 years of empowering people in their relationship with Jesus and proclaiming the gospel. Here at BHA, we are followers of Jesus from various generations and ethnic backgrounds living in unified community with a shared purpose. We are more than a church, we are a family of Believers eagerly expecting the Kingdom of Heaven to be made manifest in our community.
We are passionate in cultivating our relationship and identity with the Full Godhead: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The BHA community believes that all Believers have a role in the Kingdom of God. It is a family where your gifts and talents are appreciated and we are eager for you to learn and for you to also impart your passions in our fellowship.
If you are looking for a church which believes in a family atmosphere, total submission to the Holy Spirit in both Worship and Life, the fullness of the Gospel, strong Biblical Teaching and a place where all believers are sons and daughters who have something special to offer the church and the world, then you have found a family.

Ruhmon JohnsonYouth Pastor
Ruhmon was born and raised in Bristol, PA. He professed his faith in Jesus and was baptized at an early age. As he grew into adulthood, he had many experiences that challenged and strengthened his faith. While in high school, he encouraged his peers to have a personal relationship with Jesus. At this point in his life, he sensed a calling to evangelize as well as help with children’s ministries at the church he was attending. Ruhmon attended college at The Art Institute in Philadelphia, and then transferred to Cairn University to pursue the calling on his life by obtaining a Bachelor’s of Science in Biblical Studies.
Before graduating from college, Ruhmon gained most of his “hands-on” ministry experience as a volunteer youth leader. After spending many years in this role, he felt the Lord calling him to pursue a Youth Pastor position here at Bristol Hope Assembly in September of 2015. Pastor Ruhmon’ goal at BHA is to bring students closer to Jesus through relationship building and Bible Teaching. Pastor Ruhmon also teaches at our Sunday service monthly.
Ruhmon enjoys spending time with his wife, Kristi, and their three children Kiyelle, Uriah, and Anze. He especially enjoys spending quality time with the Lord. Ruhmon’s greatest desire is to fulfill the Lord’s will and see as many souls come to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
