Living Hope has a pastor, and he's great (Hi, Bill!), but he doesn't run the church. Living Hope is run by its members. We pay a few of them, but most are Volunteers - Elders, Deacons, and People Using Their God-Given Gifts. If you have questions about who does what, Lisa knows everything and can point you in the right direction. Her email is


  • BIll Gestal

    Bill teaches us what the Bible says and how to apply it to our lives. Check out his Daily Bible Reading Blog, or read an extended bio here.

    Lisa holds it all together. She also is a Commissioned Lay Pastor and is a vital part of our Healing Prayer Ministry.

  • Angelo Natalie

    Worship Leader

    Angelo ushers us into the throne room of God and says, "Sing!".

  • Jordan Norfleet

    Youth Director

    Jordan answers all the crazy questions, and spends a lot of time just being there for our students.

  • Beth & Manny Cuellar

    Sextons, aka building & Grounds

    Let's just say that Beth (last name pronounced Qway-are) is on a first-name basis at Home Depot. She and Manny keep our quirky building running.

  • Andrea BroWn

    Assistant Treasurer

    Andrea pays the bills. Andrea's boss is our Volunteer Treasurer, Walter Baker.


Elders are prominent in the New Testament as on-going leaders of local churches. Together with our Pastor, Bill Gestal, the Elders listen for God's leading, chart the course, and set the priorities for the church accordingly. The Elders and the Pastor (combined called The Session) meet at least monthly for bible study, prayer, and leadership functions.

Deacons are ordained to lead the Living Hope church community to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus. In addition to each Deacons' assigned area of ministry, all Deacons pray over prayer requests from church and community members, help administer Communion, and visit members of the Living Hope Church family who are sick or home-bound.
