The congregation moved into the HOPE facility in April 1981 where they continue as laborers together with the HOPE Church family. Their greatest joy has been raising their lovely family of 6, and leading a beautiful, continually growing congregation. They look forward to many blessings in the future.

WORSHIP leader

Husband to Teresa, father to Abbie, Jack, and Jenna.  From the time he was a child until now,  John has always had a love for music.  He believes uplifting the name of Jesus Christ and seeing souls saved for God's  kingdom is the ultimate goal of any ministry.  Creating a worshipful atmosphere that allows people to draw closer to God is his desire.  He hopes and prays that our city will see our worship not just on Sunday, but how we serve and love one another everyday.  "But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him." John 4:23
