Pastor Van has been at New Hope nearly since its start. Joining staff in 1994 as Lead Pastor, Van served faithfully in this role for nearly 26 years! He now serves as Campus Pastor at our newest location here in Shelbyville!
He has a B.A. in Music from Andrew College, B.A. in History from Florida Southern, and a Graduate Degree in Practical Theology from Regent University.
Van enjoys table tennis, golf, wood working (he can whittle anything out of beechwood!), and hanging out with his wife, three children, and two grandchildren.
