• Gary Hay
    Senior Pastor
    The last thing I ever envisioned would have been doing what I do today. Yet, one encounter with God changes everything. I am persuaded that the unfolding revelation of who He is will fascinate us for the rest of our days and beyond. I want to teach, equip and lead as many people as possible, here and abroad, to know, to love and to serve the Lord and those for whom He died.

  • Gina Phillips
    Administrative Assistant
    A few of my favorite things: a good book or movie, a day of shopping, fun times with family & friends, good food, and Jesus – but not necessarily in that order. What don’t I do at Hope? 🙂 I keep things running smoothly through general office work & special projects.

  • Ron Sartin
    Grounds Manager
    At Hope, I work and manage a team to make sure the grounds, classrooms, and the overall building stay up to standard, and are clean and ready for services and meetings. Sometimes it looks like major improvements with help from contracted labor, and sometimes it’s simply cleaning and prepping a room. When services and meetings wrap up, our main work begins!
