Many folks grew up with only one pastor, or at least one position of pastor in their church. At Hope we actually feature a preaching/teaching team. While Rev. Rufus Smith, (Senior Pastor), preaches most often followed by Dr. Eli Morris, (Senior Associate Pastor), and Dr. Craig Strickland, (Founding Pastor) speaks as well. In addition Rev. Freddie Albaugh, (Marriage and Family Pastor), Rev. Issac Curry (Single Adults) and Rev. Jessica Morris (Ministries) also make valuable weekend contributions. This rotation allows the congregation to benefit from different perspectives. Our preaching/teaching team puts biblical faith into easy modern language for application in your everyday life.
