I joined the church as the Lead Minister in July, 2011. I have been married to my wife, Lori, since 1988 and we have three great kids: Austin, Jake, and Aubrey. I am a graduate of Cincinnati Christian University. And in my free time, I enjoy playing an occasional round of golf and cheering for the Louisville Cardinals.
My wife Casey and I have lived in Roanoke since 2008. We have two amazing sons named Peyton and Hayden, and a boxer named Reese. I’m an ’05 graduate of Johnson University and have been in student ministry since ’04. I love a good cup of coffee, playing guitar, having fun, and the occasional practical joke!
It has been amazing to watch as God has guided my family to where we are now. We feel so blessed that God has brought us to New Hope. We are excited to see how God will shape us as a family and where He will move us as a church.
Children's Ministry Director
My husband Wes and I have two highly spirited, young girls named Cooper and Claire. We couldn't be more blessed to be able to raise them in our hometown and to have the opportunity to explore with them experiences we had here growing up.
I enjoy coffee, time with my friends and family as well as simply building relationships. I love meeting people and am an open book. God has been hard at work in my life and I love to share Him with others. Knowing how He has already moved and shaped me, I'm excited to see His will further New Hope and the children's ministry!
Children's Ministry Assistant
I have been a member at New Hope for about 17 years. My husband Coy and I have been married for 17 years this month and we have 3 sons, Nathan (11), Andrew (8), and Tyler (3).
I am excited to see what God has in store for our children here at New Hope and I feel so blessed to be a part of this children's ministry!
Living Link Missionary/Worship
My husband Shawn and I have been attending New Hope since December 2012. We enjoy playing golf, watching a good movie, trying new restaurants and traveling when we get a chance. I enjoy adventures, cooking, DIY projects, and spending time with children and others. God has called us to adopt one of His children and we are currently in the process. I am eager to see what additional plans He has for our family, to love people, and to see our church growing and serving Him.
