At Living Hope, 3 things shape our ministry:


Isn’t a new discovery exciting? Join us in a never-ending discovery of God’s indescribable love for each of us, woven through every part of the scriptures. Far beyond being told “God loves you”, we are discovering a love without measure, without boundaries, a love that led Jesus to the cross on our behalf. Unsure if God really loves you? Join us in discovering the answer to that question!


What are we pursuing? In a word, transformation! Having discovered God’s love, we pursue a deepening relationship with Him through His Word and prayer.  We quickly discover His power can set us free from past brokenness and failures, giving us a great hope for the future. We are not in this pursuit alone. We walk alongside others on a similar journey, helping and supporting each other along the way.


As we are transformed by God’s love and power, we grow in our desire to surrender to His leading. He sends us as His servants, outside the walls of the church, to our families, workplaces, communities and around the globe. As He produces increasing maturity and strength in us, God positions us for new levels of service, within and outside of the church.

Sunday Mornings at Living Hope (10am):

A Sunday morning at Living Hope includes contemporary worship, Biblical yet practical teaching, classes for children aged 3 through 6th grade, an unstaffed nursery, and a chance to meet some friendly people! Our service starts at 10 am, but come at 9AM to socialize in the cafe with free coffee! Please don’t stress about what to wear, as casual dress is the norm.

Ron Ressler

Senior Pastor

I am blessed to be able to serve the people who make up Living Hope! My desire for us is that we are fully committed to Jesus as His disciples and fully engaged in the world around us as His servants, utilizing the unique gifts and personalities He has placed in each of us, whether in the workplace, our families, our schools or our communities.

Aaron & Ashley Talamantez

Youth Ministry Team Leaders

We have been married for 7 years and have one son. Aaron has a passion to equip today’s youth with the ability to answer tough questions about faith and Christianity. We desire to create an environment that encourages teens to understand their identity in Christ and develops their relationships with other teens, mentors, and most importantly, Jesus. We are passionate about seeing the Gospel reach and transform the teens' lives.

Kayla Shindle

Children's Ministry Team Leader

My husband Joe and I have two school age children. God blessed me with a passion for children from a very young age. My hope, not only for my own children, but for all children, is that they would grow up having a foundation rooted in Christ alone, and that should they fall, they would fall on their knees to Jesus- resting on solid truths and not the ways of the world.




We believe that God created and sustains all things. He is God over all. We believe His son Jesus came to earth to show us what His father is like and to die for our sins. We believe that God's word, the Bible, is the final authority for all matters of life, including faith, money, marriage, family and ministry.


Take a look into all the ministries we offer. We feel as if there is a ministry for everyone. We would love it if you would join us!
