Alyssa joined the staff at New Hope in 2017 as the Kids & Youth Ministry Coordinator. Before this position, she worked as a STEM teacher at Sylvan Learning Center. She has been attending New Hope with her family since 1997 and accepted Jesus and began her own personal faith journey with Him as a junior in high school. She is committed to helping, not only the kids and youth ministries, but the Church as a whole to share the love of Jesus with others.
Alyssa assists Pastor Kirstin and Pastor Justin with the kids and youth ministries. She is responsible for all kids and youth admin work, preparing curriculum, and many, many other odd jobs that (often) come up when it comes to kids and youth ministry.
Alyssa met her husband Jack at the age of four, but began their relationship in 2018. They were married on August 8th, 2020. They are a great team, both as youth small group leaders and also when it comes to silly antics. Jack works as a composite technologies project manager at Composite Approach in Redmond.
Alyssa’s interests revolve around time spent with her friends as well as getting outdoors. Her favorite hike is to Chush Falls outside of Sisters, but loves getting the adrenaline going by riding dirt bikes. She loves camping with her husband in their CVT, but also taking it easy and finding fun crafts to do on Pinterest. Alyssa also works as a part-time barista at Starbucks.
