Background

Justin is the Pastor of our Middle School Ministry at New Hope Church. Even as a student he had a passion and desire to invest in the lives of both Middle School and High School students. He started his ministry experience in 2012, and has been enjoying every minute of it. Justin is what we would call a local here, living in Bend for nearly his whole life. Justin looks forward to the opportunity to continue to reach out to the youth in the Bend community.

Responsibilities

Justin oversees all areas of the Middle School Ministry. His goal is to prepare them for the challenges of High School and most importantly to help the students develop an understanding of what a healthy relationship with God should look like. Justin puts his focus on developing God-seeking volunteers, partnering with parents, and creating events and programs outside of youth group nights.

Other Interests

Justin enjoys just about any outdoor activity. Anything from skiing, fishing, hiking, backpacking, running, you name it; anything outside. On occasion he loves to sit down at one of Bends many coffee shops and enjoy a book or conversations with friends.

Education

Currently enrolled with the Pacific Evangelical School of Ministry (PESM)
