NEW HOPE TEAM

JEFF CARTWRIGHT

Head Pastor

I've been married for 24 years to the love of my life, Sharon and we have 2 beautiful daughters, Emma and Abigail.  

Dayton is the perfect city:  plenty to do but not so large that you get lost and have to deal with crazy traffic.  

I love New Hope because it is about the most real place I know.  You come as you are and you are who you are and you're welcomed as you are and I love that.

My greatest passion in life is helping other people make a connection to Jesus and to others who will love them and walk with them on their journey.

Philippians 4:6-7 says "6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."  I love this verse for lots of reasons but knowing that in Christ I can find peace when I lay my burdens before Him is an incredible thing.

DAN RENFRO

Recovery Pastor

I have been married to my wife Nita for 48 years. We have 4 daughters and a son.  My favorite things about Dayton are that it's a nice place to live, with great people, and lots of history.  My favorite thing about New hope is that it's the most authentic Christian experience I have ever known.  My greatest passion in life is helping people find their life, and how to live a new and much better way 

My favorite Bible verse today it is Psalm 121  it starts out as:

My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth

It keeps me centered on the fact "I am Not in control and He is!

Children's Ministry

My husband Jim and I have been married for 31 years.  We have 2 boys. JJ lives in Colorado and is an electrician. Ryan, who lives in Pittsburgh, is studying media arts in college and is an EMT.  I have lived in Dayton since March of 2020.  My favorite thing about Dayton is I never know what I am going to see, each day there is a surprise somewhere. My favorite thing about New Hope is the active life changing ministry we do on a daily basis. My greatest passion in life is to help others, no matter what age, make Jesus their best friend.  My life verse is Joshua 1:9 "Be strong and courageous, do not be terrified for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

My husband Brian and I have been married for a year.  We have a blended family, and together we have 6 children.  I was born and raised in Dayton.  I graduated from Centerville High School.  New Hope started out as just a job for me even though I too have struggled with addiction in the past.  My job quickly turned into my family.  I no longer have extended family that live in Ohio, and everyone at New Hope has embraced my husband, children, and me as their own.  We feel so blessed to have found hope at New Hope!  I have a passion for taking care of people and making them feel supported and loved.  One of my favorite Bible verses is Psalm 23:1–6

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
