Pastor Kevin Maxey
Kevin Maxey joined the staff at Hope in June of 2011 as Hope’s senior pastor. He was born in Miami, Florida, and each time God has called him to a particular congregational ministry, it has been near a significant body of water. This is ironic because, although he enjoys the water, he has no interest in being owned by a boat. Kevin is married to Janice and they have three adult children. For fun and recreation he enjoys working with his hands - either building things or cooking. His passion converged most recently with a wood-fired pizza oven which allowed him to build something and, once it was built, cook with it.
Pastor Kristin Hunsinger
Kristin Hunsinger joined the team at Hope in March 2016 as associate pastor for youth and family ministries. She was born in South Carolina and has spent about equal amounts of her life in the Southeast and the Midwest. Growing up in the Lutheran church she loves the traditions of the church, but is always looking for ways to reshape traditions so they reach and make sense for all generations to continue growing in faith. Kristin enjoys photography, knitting & crocheting, is an avid sports fan, and loves to travel. She also loves music, having sung in choirs and played both flute and hand bells for much of her life.
Gail enjoys selecting hymns for worship and working with each of our choirs. You'll also see her working with our Praise Team on Sundays!
Pam can be found at the organ during traditional services and at the keyboard with our praise team. She also helps strengthen Hope's connection with the University of Toledo where Pam is a faculty member in the music department.
Minister of Student Ministries
Diane works primarily with our DIT students (ages 4 through 6th grade) from planning Sunday School and Vacation Bible School to special events during the year.
Peggy is routinely providing assistance to the Finance Team and Hope members Mondays and Tuesdays from 9-5 and Thursdays from 9-1.
Director of Pastoral Care
Lois leads the Caregivers Team as they work to visit the shut-ins and hospitalized members of Hope.
Mike is part of our custodial team. He is a morning person so you'll most often see him if your visit Hope before noon. Mike ensures the building can be an example of Hope's core value of hospitality.
