STAFF & LEADERSHIP

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 Lisa@LivingHopeCT.org.

  • Beth Crimmins

    Children's DIrector

    Beth teaches the kids that God loves, loves, loves them. She comes up with ideas like hanging donuts from the ceiling for Fall festival (so the kids can try to eat them with no hands, of course), and stuffing 3,000 eggs for Easter.

Elders

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

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. Please contact us at Deacons@LivingHopeCT.org to let us know how we can come alongside you.
