Lead Pastor | Brandton Wood
I (Brandton) grew up on a small family farm near Dublin, Georgia. Katie grew up wearing wellies & snow boots in Hampton, New Hampshire. We met & married while attending graduate school in North Carolina. Just as we love Maine, our 3 amazing daughters also share our love for Maine. Our oldest daughter, Corley works as a graphic artist and media design specialist for the College of Education at Clemson University (SC). Corban is our middle daughter and she is a senior in high school here in Maine. Callann is our youngest and she's in Grade 8. We're big fans of the Georgia Bulldogs (go dawgs!) and the New England Patriots (well, at least Katie loves the Pats). We also love the Boston Red Sox, the Atlanta Braves, and the Florida Gators. We're ordinary people. Our lives sometimes get a little messy. But we've come to see that God is bigger than our messes, greater than our struggles, and the repairer of our brokenness. He is our Hope.
Worship Leadership | Eunice Txn
Eunice became active in the Hope Band in 2019. She began volunteering as the leader for the Hope Band in late 2020. A native to Maylasia, Eunice has been in the US since her college years in Pennsylvania. We are grateful that God has brought Eunice halfway around the world to be a part of Hope Church.
Hope Kids Director | Stephanie Ecker
The Eckers began attending Hope after our launch in September 2017. Stephanie is married to Lee and they have two sweet sons who are the life of the party. We're excited to welcome Stephanie into this volunteer role as the Director for Hope Kids. She brings a lot to the table with a love for Jesus, a love for kids, and a love for parents. Thanks Stephanie for all that you do.
