Our Team

Kaleb Hurley

Lead Pastor

Pastor Kaleb was given a vision for Hope Church two years before the doors opened and the dream became a reality.  He has given many years to the call of God to raise up this body of believers and continues to pour himself out to do so.  Pastor Kaleb boldly proclaims the word of God, while building genuine relationships with a desire for ALL people to experience the Lord’s transformation; like his own has been transformed.

Pastor Kaleb was raised up by a discipleship training school and then served as a leader for the program for several years, followed by serving as a Worship & Young Adults Pastor before planting Hope Church.  He is supported by his partner in ministry and wife Kristy, their son and twin girls.  “PK” especially enjoys traveling, date-nights, watching football and connecting with people over a good cup of coffee.

Kristy Hurley

Youth Ministry & Women's Ministry Leader

Kristy is Pastor Kaleb's wife and has been helping Hope Church run since it was only a dream. She takes us to the next level with her administrative and organizational gifts, helping things run smoothly behind the scenes.  Kristy leads our women’s ministry by organizing quarterly Women of Hope events and mentoring women. She also oversees our Junior & Senior High Youth Ministry, making sure that our teens have a space to grow in their faith and have fun.

God developed Kristy’s heart for ministry through ten summers spent overseas doing missions work and attending Bible school. She desires to see the Church be healthy, reach more people and develop hearts that truly seek after the Lord. Among the countless other things she does, Kristy enjoys spending time with her husband, son and twin girls, as well as travelling, reading and being outdoors.

Abi has been with Hope since the very beginning. Since day one, Abi has been passionate about seeing people serve the Lord. Abi has served in many areas of the church that ultimately led her to her current position as the Support & Event Coordinator. She loves people, decorating, and hosting-- the perfect combination for this creative mom of three (and 5 pets including a turtle and gecko).

Lucas Schuster

Tech Director 

Lucas has been highly involved in Hope Church from the very beginning. He has served in multiple roles and is now stepping into the staff team with his skills in video production.
Lucas impacts far more than videos with his passion to connect with people, share his faith, experiences, love, and passion for worship.  
He has interests in just about everything all while being a great dad to his 3 kids and husband to his wife. If you're looking for a good conversation, join him on his deck for a good pour-over or homemade kombucha.

Chloe has joined us on staff as our Worship Director. Chloe has a both a heart and gift to lead people into worship and praise for the Lord.
She is married to her husband Micah and enjoy spending time with their two daughters. 

Barry Heine

Benevolence Director

Barry has been faithfully serving Hope Church since the beginning. If there is an opportunity to work hard, Barry will be there. His primary role as a volunteer staff member is to provide support to our Benevolence Ministry, but you never know what kind of project you'll find him working on.
When he's not working at Hope or the auto repair shop he helps run, he is probably caring for someone going through a tough time, or enjoying the great outdoors with his wife Kris while sipping an iced tea.
