    I've been blessed to be the pastor of New Hope since 2009. Together, my wife, Megan, and I are the parents to four wonderful kids - Jed, Levi, Josiah, and Eden. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, camping, cooking, BBQ, tinkering, learning, reading, and dreaming of the wilderness! 


    I hope we get to meet!

    I am blessed to praise the Lord, with his people, through the gift of music! I also enjoy being a wife and mother, playing piano and mandolin, singing, Bible journaling, reading and exploring God's beautiful creation with my family!

  • Pamela Hart - Ministry Assistant

    pmhart@nhlchurch.org

    I am so excited to serve in this newly created position to assist with ministry and administrative duties here at New Hope!  Under Pastor's guidance, I will be researching "best practices" to effectively maintain social media content, as well as enhance efforts associated with new member, college student and children's "milestone" ministries. 


    My regular office hours will be Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, but you might find me greeting folks or working behind the curtain at  a weekend or evening event as well... (Euchre, anyone?)
