Living Hope Church is led by a team of elders and deacons. The spiritual responsibility and authority to shepherd the church rests with a group of elders, rather than a single pastor. The deacons support the elders in managing the ministry of the church.
Tim Dance is the lead pastor. Tim leads the team of elders and deacons, oversees the ministry of the church, and cares for the needs of the people. He also preaches most Sundays. To read more about our Pastor, click here.

Greg Chambers is also part of the elder team that shepherds the church. Greg is responsible to oversee the hospitality ministry on Sunday morning.
Chris Lewis is our deacon of finances. As the treasurer, Chris is responsible to manage all the income and expenses of the church.
Randy Clifford is our deacon of facilities. Randy coordinates a team to arrange the set-up and tear-down for Sunday morning worship at the YMCA.
Ryan Krodel is our deacon of Children’s Ministry. Ryan coordinates Sunday morning logistics for classes and assists the Team Leaders.
