Greetings! My name is Jim Bringman; husband to wife, Linda for 29 years and father of our four children, Justin, Brittany, Jennifer, and Austin; ages 24-32. Beginning January 2018, Linda and I entered into our 17th year of pastoral ministry. This calling has been both challenging and rewarding for us, but through His Word, God has enabled us to connect people to Christ, raise a family, and establish relationships that will last a lifetime. I am licensed and ordained by the Christian Church; specifically the Disciple Heritage Fellowship, located in Shelbyville, Illinois.  I am a graduate of Baptist Bible College & Seminary located in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, where I received an M.Min degree and now have pastoral standing in the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches. My last calling was serving as senior pastor at Unity Bible Church in Lewiston, Maine. Previously, for ten years, I served as senior pastor at the Christian Church in Sigourney, Iowa.

Hello! My name is Abby Ruble and I am the youth pastor at New Hope Church.
I am originally from here in Decatur, IN where I graduated Bellmont High School in 2012. I went on to attend Grace College in Winona Lake, IN where I graduated in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in both youth ministry and counseling.
Immediately following I moved to Lake Ann Camp near Traverse City, MI and was involved in many aspects of camping ministry including the High Adventure program, the L.I.F.T. Internship, and the Junior High program.
I have been the youth pastor at New Hope Church since October of 2016, and it is my desire to reach the next generation for Christ! If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or would like to meet please do not hesitate to contact me!
