JAMIE WOODYARD

Lead Pastor

I am grateful for God’s grace in my life, and the privilege of being married to Krista for 20 years is one of the greatest joys of my life. We have three kids, Aaron, Luke, and Ellie. Each of them, in their own unique way, add so much to my life that it’s hard to describe. I am humbled to be their dad! I love my family!

I’m a seminary graduate from Southern Seminary, but most importantly, I am the lead pastor of Hope Church. Shepherding God’s people and leading Hope Church is so exciting for me. I believe in our mission, our people, and in the power of the gospel more than ever before. The days ahead are full of great potential.

I realize more each day that the church is a gift of God’s grace to me. Krista and I count it one of the greatest honors of our lives to be on mission with friends and ministry partners full of gospel hope. The story God is writing is so beautiful and rewarding; I am humbled to be a part of it!

Worship Pastor

I have been active in the local church in worship ministry since I was a teenager. However, even though I grew up hearing the truth of scripture all my life, it wasn’t until 2008 that the Lord opened my eyes to my sin and saved me by his grace. Then in 2012, I felt the clear call to full time ministry. I was on staff at our sending church for four years, and it is a privilege to serve here at Hope Church now.

I am married to my wife, Erica, and we have three young kids, so our house is clean, quiet, and peaceful at all times. I am also a student at Southern Seminary, working towards my masters in theology. I love playing guitar and mixing music, as well as drawing, playing basketball, and trying my hand at simple woodworking projects. 

Ultimately, I am passionate about leading people in responding to the Lord through worship. I hope to see you soon!
