Staff at New Hope

The staff at New Hope love Jesus fiercely, study God's Word intensely, and want the community to meet the God that longs for them.

  • Hey, I'm Jeff! I met Jesus as a young kid and knew I wanted to be a pastor shortly after. When I'm not hanging out with the awesome people of New Hope or working on my PhD in the Angry Psalms (yep, it's as weird and as interesting as it sounds), you'll find me and my family playing in the mountains in our Jeep. My wife and I met in High School Youth Group, and now 20 years and 2 kids later (Levi, 11, and Lucy, 9), we are even more in love. I'd love to grab a coffee-or even better, some Chipotle- and get to know you!!

  • Christopher Newby

    Worship Pastor

    Hey there, I’m Chris, the newest addition to the New Hope team! I have been passionate about worship ministry since I started playing piano during worship services when I was eleven years old. When I’m not making music with the awesome members of New Hope or memorizing Greek declensions for my master’s degree (Just like Pastor Jeff, I too am a glutton for educational punishment), you can catch me reading every J.R.R. Tolkien book known to man, or making ridiculously pretentious coffee in my Chemex. I just finished my bachelor’s degree in Music Ministry at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. Consequently, I also met my wonderful wife Rachel in my first week at Moody in the Moody Chorale (she’s an awesome musical theater nerd and a killer Alto One). We got married in July of 2018, and we are so excited to be in Colorado. I would love to hangout and talk over some (either pretentious or not) coffee!!
