New Hope Bible Church

Come Grow with Us! (Colossians 2:6-7)

Senior Pastor - Chris Lofquist 

Chris was saved by grace when he was six years old and was baptized at the age of ten in 1991.  Being raised in a Pastor?s home gave him a great Biblical Foundation, and planted the seed of full-time ministry in his life.  After living in Utah, Indiana, and Michigan God led him to Pennsylvania to minister at New Hope Bible Church.   

He attended Word of Life Bible Institute for one year and completed his bachelor?s degree in Biblical Studies at Grace College (Winona Lake, IN) in 2004.  He met the love of his life, his wife Emily, at Grace College and was married in October of 2005.  Through the years God blessed Emily and Chris with four handsome little boys, Carter (10 years old), Owen (waiting for us in heaven), Reed (7 year old), and Bennett (4 1/2 year old).  Chris recently graduated from LBC Grad School/ Capital Seminary with his Masters in Ministry degree with a focus in Pastoral Studies.  On February 20, 2011 Chris was ordained by New Hope Bible Church.  "God has blessed us with a great church family at New Hope Bible Church, and we look forward to what He will do in the years to come!"
