New Hope Staff


  • Pastor

    While we are in the call process for a new pastor at New Hope, we are very blessed to have a group of experienced and loving guest pastors to lead us in worship on Sunday mornings.  

  • Dorothy Pohler 

    Business Administrator

    busadmin@nhlchurch.org

    Dorothy and her family are long time members of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Jenison.  She brings not only her friendly smile, but credentials which make her perfectly suited to this position.  When you get a chance to visit with Dorothy, she will probably tell you this opportunity was 'heaven sent'.  Just when she was thinking about looking for something part time, here we were advertising for an office/business manager with her skills. (Is there any doubt- God's GOT this!?)


  • Pamela Hart

    Ministry Assistant
    pmhart@nhlchurch.org

    I began working in this newly created position in October of 2019, and focus mainly on worship related tasks, the website and social media accounts.

    My regular office hours are currently Monday & Wednesday between the hours of 9a & 3p.  I can be reached during these hours by calling (616) 669-2790 or by emailing me: pmhart@nhlchurch.org.  Peace, and be well!

  • Kolleen Barnhill - Sunday Worship Pianist

    Kolleen was looking for something she could do to bring in some extra income now that her girls were in school when she answered our ad for a regular Sunday morning pianist.  After hearing her play it was decided she was to be our musician.  Again, it seemed the Lord had a plan for New Hope, so he sent her to us at exactly the time we needed her!
