Before anyone else, the leader of New Hope Community Church is Jesus Christ, and we firmly hold to the conviction that it is our primary mission to follow His lead, seek first His Kingdom, and proclaim His gospel.

With this in mind, we believe that Christ has entrusted the management New Hope to our board of Elders who delegate the responsibility of leadership to our Lead Pastor and staff.
