our leaders

Living Hope is blessed to have a wonderful team of leaders and staff that work together to serve the Living Hope family.  These men and women provide leadership in many different ways, and help us as the family of God to live up to the calling that God has for each of us in our lives on earth.


The Board of Trustees are men and women of the church, selected by the members of the church to provide counsel and oversight to the Pastors.  They typically serve for three years and bring their own life experiences and skills to help our Pastors in setting goals for the church and in reviewing church finances, hiring decisions, and other important matters.
