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.

Mike Richard

Lead Pastor

My wife and I have been involved in ministry for most of our marriage. We both desire to be real with everyone we come in contact with. We don't believe in putting on a facade to be effective in ministry. We are human! 


My greatest desire is to see people get closer to Jesus, whether that is someone making the decision to turn away from their sins and begin to follow Jesus or it is a person getting closer to God that has been a believer for 20 years. We want God to be honored and glorified!

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!
