I lead New Hope Church's Global Ministries as we focus on sending, and/or supporting over 50 global partners, foreign nationals and church planting initiatives around the world. We particularly concentrate on regions where we believe NHC can be most effective. Global Ministries also seeks to educate and mobilize the church family around the biblical mandate of missions.
Serving on the staff of New Hope Church has been an exciting opportunity to use, in the context of the church, the gifts, skills and abilities that the Lord has given me and that developed over a long business career.
I always seem to gravitate toward Colossians 1:9. This is a verse which may sound obvious to many Christians. Yet, it has profound meaning for all of life. The Apostle Paul tells the Colossians, “You can know the will of God. I am praying for you that you will know it.” I have come to trust and rely on that concept.
I’m married to Donna Rueckert Janes and we have three adult children.
