There are tons of great pastors/leaders that you should know, and I really appreciated this blog by Donald Miller about why pastors are important.
I wanted to introduce you to three relatively new Pastors/Leaders at Hope (they’ve been around since the summer), three of whom have made a significant impact in our community already.
Many of you have already met these folks, but I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce them on my blog.
1. Kristian Hernandez – Kristian is a good friend whom I’ve known since 2006, and he’s one of the warmest, funniest, preach-like-nobody’s-business pastors I know. We were so blessed to have the great folks at Resurrection Churchbless Kristian and his family to join our church plant, and he’s done an amazing job preaching, pastoring, and leading in our community.
Find out more about Kristian here:
Dan is leading Hope Roosevelt Island, a new church on Roosevelt Island that I’m absolutely giddy about, and he’s added so much in terms of leadership, strategic missional thinking, wisdom, and fabulous teaching/preaching.
Amanda is leading our Hope Tots/Kids Environments, and she’s done a phenomenal job with them. Amanda is a catalytic leader who Joseph Longarino described by saying, “she could be president.” She’s really a stellar leader as well.
On top of it all, the Sadliers have five great kids. Meet them all below.
New York City is blessed to have pastors/leaders like these folks!
