church secretary

Rashelle Garrett

worship and music director

As the worship and music director I work closely with our pastor in cultivating our worship services. Our worship teams strive to lead our congregation into heartfelt worship in an invitational style – that draws people in, encourages participation, and points people to Jesus. Fostering dynamic congregational worship, singing the best of the old and the best of the new, is a key priority for our church. I have been attending Haven of Hope for 39 years and I have a passion for music and to see lives changed by the power of the Holy Spirit through worship. We have weekly rehearsals and our worship team serves our congregation every Sunday am/pm and special events if needed.

Donnie Oliver

hope in christ Ministry director

Hope in Christ ministries was formed to help those with hurts, habits, and hang ups break free and maintain that victory and freedom.  After experiencing freedom in my own life from life controlling habits and mindsets.  I became more passionate about introducing the Giver of that freedom, Jesus Christ, to others who are bound.  Our ministry team works together each week to teach the tools that bring success and to build relationships that create a strong support system for those who attend.  

We welcome all who are ready to find help and healing.

Hope in Christ meets on Thursdays evenings at 6:30pm. Free childcare provided.
