Additionally, HOPE has developed a partnership with a mission in Mozambique, Africa where he has lead (4) four separate summer mission trips. He’s a Pastor’s Pastor, working both locally and internationally to help support, love, encourage, sharpen other Pastors. Many displaced Pastors find home at HOPE during their re-assignment period and Pastor Todd helps to restore, find healing and discover that new ministry assignment.
The things Pastor Todd loves most about HOPE Community Church is his opportunity to build relationships, sharing HOPE in times of crisis and leading people to faith in Christ! It is truly a place where “Christ in you, is the HOPE of glory!” Colossians 1:27b
