WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR ROLE?

“I love getting to be part of the process of our worship services coming together from beginning to end. I see all the hard work that goes into making moments happen in our services, and I love when God uses a creative element we’ve developed to bring about life change. I love looking at the big picture of how we do church and why, and enjoy working with our team to craft challenging, thought-provoking and life-changing moments with God.”

 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT NEW HOPE CHURCH?

“I love our vision to reach the next generation and that we aren’t afraid of change. I love that we aren’t comfortable with just doing things the way they’ve always been done and that we constantly seek new direction from God.”
