31 May New Worker on Board
We are delighted to welcome James Lavender to Hope’s staff as our full-time Community Connections Coordinator (C3)! This is the culmination of an 18-month Spirit-led process. James and his wife Elizabeth were previously in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he served as Director of Music at a Lutheran church. James grew up in Austin, he and Liz went to school here, and they both are excited to be returning to their home country of Texas. James is multi-talented and eager to put his gifts to use with Hope in extending the reach of the Gospel of Jesus. He will be focused on building local relationships to the church through beneficial partnerships, social media, event planning, group formation, and more. May the Lord bless us all to share in a fruitful and harmonious ministry. We will have a service of installation and lunch reception this Sunday, June 5.
