ROD & LORI LOVEJOY
Rod and Lori are a couple who love Christ, their church family, and personal family more than anything in this world. Both have been involved in youth ministry for over eight years. They are constantly pursuing new ways to help youth find Christ and make HIM the center of their universe. Their motto remains Hebrews 10:24-25, "Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near."
TERESA BARNETT & Team
"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6. Our Children are our next generation of pastors, worship leaders, evangelist and so on. At HOPE, we strive to have our children understand what it is to have a relationship with God even at a young age. Our passion is to get these children inspired and excited about the word of God, and truly show them their full potential. Our motto is, "If you can reach one child, then you have opened the door to that child's family, then to their friends, and even their community. All it takes is one soul to start a chain reaction"
Patty is married to Don, and is mother of Jill Chernok and Marsha Pounds. Patty is the president of the HOPE Ladies Ministry and enjoys coordinating events for the church, such as fundraisers, holiday dinners, etc. Ephesians says, "With good will doing service as to the Lord." She finds it heartening to know that the ladies serving with her are sincere about helping their community and members of the church. Her desire to serve the Lord and share His love with others is quite prominent. As she says, "Come to the house of the Lord, pull up a chair at our table, grab your fork and taste and see that the Lord is good."
Children's Ministry here at HOPE is officially under construction. A fantastic children’s ministry team is in position and amazing new team members in the making. We are also pleased to announce that we are greatly expanding our children’s ministry by adding a whole new building structure and wing for our children that will be directly connected to our current building facility. The beginning of 2020 looks to be one of the most exciting seasons for our children and young families that we’ve ever experienced. Mark 9:37, "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me, but the one who sent me." At HOPE we strive for excellence and cant wait to have you and your family join us as we all work to help our children and families thrive together in Christ.
CARE TEAM LEADER
Husband to Tammy, bass player, and the leader of the HOPE CARE Team, Jason's goal is to love and care for the church family. While building a family tie, reaching out to those who are sick, in need of prayer, help, or even away on vacation, he wishes to reflect the caring culture of HOPE to the community around us, and that all feel welcome. Matthew 22:39 tells us to love our neighbor as thyself, and that is his desire.
