Current Opportunities at New Hope

“Serving” Opportunities at New Hope

From your Nominations Team…

Dear New Hope Family and Friends,

We want to thank everyone who has agreed to serve into 2019 and beyond. We’re blessed to have a great group of folks who care deeply at our mission of loving God, loving others, and serving, and are willing to step up to make it happen. We are blessed, indeed!

We also want to thank those who have served over this year and in past years. Many of given of their time and efforts sacrificially and, as a congregation, we’ve also been blessed by their service to Christ and his church.

But we still have room for you! We still have a few important positions that we need to fill as we move into 2019. They are below with a short explanation of each. Please contact Pastor Greg if you’re interested in serve in any of these areas.

Finance Chair – The finance chair’s responsibility is to oversee and work with the finance team as they raise funds and promote the ministry stewardship health of the church. They should be a professing member of New Hope Church. They chair a monthly meeting for finance, and a monthly church council meeting. At times, it requires communicating with the congregation. Doug Chapin, who has served well in this capacity for 8 years is willing to train his replacement.

Youth Director – We’re still looking for the right person to restart our youth ministry. Uncommon is fitting the spot until April, but we need a professing member who loves youth ministry and is willing to put their time and effort into others. This position, while answerable to the pastor, can be done in new and different ways especially since we’re starting over. Wally Ewing and the other Youth and Children’s Ministry leaders are willing to work with whomever steps forward for this important and needed position.

FOUND!!! - Treasurer & Co-Treasurer Update – We’re thankful for Steve Brandt for stepping up in this area. He will be working alongside Laura Hall and Linda Randall learning how we do things! Steve, who lives in Canadian Lakes, is a CPA with a background in finance and insurance. We’re very thankful for his willingness to hear God’s call and serve at New Hope.

At New Hope, in order for all the ministry areas below to prosper in our goal to love God, love others, and serve, it’s important that everyone find someplace where they can get plugged in for ministry and service. In addition to the other opportunities in our bulletin and newsletter, every director below would be blessed by your service. Pray on it and then act on it. New Hope Church will be blessed by it.

God will bless you for it!

Volunteers are always needed in these areas below. Please contact one of these directors today if you can help in these ministries. Just about anyone can serve anywhere!
