WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR ROLE?

“I believe my husband and I are so drawn and called to this group because of all that we have both learned during our high school years. Those years are such a vulnerable time for teens, and we are passionate about teaching, guiding, supporting, and caring for the youth as well as equipping leaders to maximize the passion and gifts God has given them. We are eager to lead kids to Christ and help prepare them for the tough stuff that may lie ahead.”

 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT NEW HOPE CHURCH?

“I love the people at New Hope and the vision of the church. Reaching the next generation is crucial for the growth of our church and God’s kingdom. The hospitality we’ve experienced at New Hope is like the kind of love you find with a family. We have always felt so welcome; it makes us want to reciprocate that kindness and make others feel the same way.”
