New To newhope?

newhope is a safe place for all of us to explore what following Jesus looks like. It's a place to be yourself, build friendships, grow spiritually, and laugh. We have a vision to present hope (Jesus is Savior) and develop people (people becoming the church). And there are no perfect people allowed. The Gospel is good news for broken people like me.

Everyone is welcome at newhope regardless of your story, questions, doubts, or struggles. We don't pretend to have all the answers but believe in The God who does. Like the 1st-Century Christians, we gather for large group celebrations on the weekend, and then meet in community groups during the week to: connect in relationship, grow spiritually, and live out our faith by serving the community. This is what we mean by 'people becoming the church.'

Jeffery & Joanne Portmann – newhope Lead

Jeffery6.gif

We have been together since High School and were married in 1993. We have two sons, Justus & Josiah who keep us laughing and praying. Jeffery is Norwegian and Joanne is Samoan, so something is pillaged and burned every week at our house by our boys and their awesome friends. We love family, athletics, and traveling to anywhere with a beach.

Jeffery came to faith in Christ as an elementary school kid and Joanne while in Junior High. We love the mission of The Church! We have been serving in ministry for over 20 years in various roles and moved to South Hill June of 2013 after feeling a clear calling to plant newhope. We exist to present hope and develop people.

Chris & April Hinkle – newhope Kids

We met in our church youth group, started dating our Sr. year of high school, and were married in 2003. We both come from big families and started one of our own with three boys and one girl, Kaden, Isaac, Landen and Jenna. Needless to say, our home is busy, loud and fun! We love our family, playing sports, Seahawks, and spending time with people.

We have served in ministry as youth pastors for almost 9 years and are excited to now serve as newhope's kids pastors! Our passion is to create an environment where kids know they matter, Jesus loves them, and have fun together.

We have served as youth pastors over the last 7 years. Jeremy has also worked working in management with Nordstrom, and Marissa has spent the last 9 years as a Labor & Deliver nurse at various hospitals. We moved to South Hill December of 2013 after feeling a clear calling to be a part of the launch team of newhope. We are excited to be a part of a church that engages people both in the church and in the community.
