Alex & Jennifer Michel
Alex Michel and Jennifer, his wife of eighteen years, are the senior pastoral leaders of New Hope Town. The Michel’s and their four children moved to Hawaii in the Summer of 2009. Pastor Alex entered the pastorate in 2003 by becoming the Youth Director and High School Pastor of The Church On The Way in Van Nuys, California. Their fourteen years of serving as both volunteers and pastors at The Church On Way helped prepare and shape them as the shepherds and teachers that they are known for being.
In March of 2009, Pastor Alex met Pastor Wayne Cordeiro, founding pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship, as a student in a class he was teaching in Los Angeles. The Michel’s took a trip to the islands in May of ’09 to pray and seek the Lord for his direction for their future. It was on this trip that they heard from the Lord that Hawai’i was to be their new home and place of serving the Lord.
The Michel’s passion is to serve the people of Hawai’i, and honor the rich history and lives of its people by building New Hope Town as a church that loves Jesus and them with all their hearts.
