"11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and
teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be
built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."
Eph. 4:11-13 NIV
After 28 years of spirit-filled preaching, teaching, and equipping of the saints of New Hope MBC; our Pastor, Rev. Dr. David L. Roberson and First Lady, Rev. Catherine Roberson, retired September 8, 2020. We wish them God’s continued blessings in the next phase of their life and ministry.
In October 2020, the New Hope MBC Officers began the process of establishing a Pastoral Screening Committee (PSC). This was done in accordance with the New Hope MBC Bylaws and Constitution. The Deacon Board, Trustee Board, and the Congregation elected representatives to serve on the PSC, which was then approved by the Church at the January 30, 2021 Annual Meeting.
In February 2021, the Pastoral Screening Committee (PSC) began meeting to develop the screening criteria and qualifications for our next Pastor.
