Eugene Miller, Lead Pastor
I love: the Lord, my family, and growing fig trees in my yard
After attending Liberty University and Biblical Theological Seminary, I came to Living Hope in 1999 as the first pastor of a newly formed church plant. It's so exciting to see how Living Hope has grown over the years, and to have the opportunity to reach people, draw them into a deeper and more authentic relationship with Christ, and equip them to serve. When I'm not preaching, I like to surf, hunt, drink good coffee, and ride my Harley. I live right here in the community of Dublin with my wife, Diana, and we have two beautiful daughters, an two awesome sons-in-law, and an incredible grandson, Braxton, and granddaughter, Willow.
Nick Campagna, Adult Ministries Pastor
I love: my wife, my daughters, and Italian wedding soup
I joined the Living Hope Team in 2007 and serve this community as the Adult Ministries Pastor. One of the best parts of my job is spending time with followers of Jesus, and seeing them have those “a ha” moments in their journey, before taking the next step in their walk with God. One of my other favorite things to do at Living Hope is play on the softball team! My iTunes is full of Gungor and Imagine Dragons, and I’m a loyal fan of all Philly sports teams. I live in Perkasie with my wildly wonderful family.
Cole Simcox, Worship Ministries Director
I love: my family, music, and the outdoors
Music has been a large part of my life for as long as I can remember. I am the product of a musical family and am one of five boys who have all been gifted musically. (Thanks, Mom & Dad!) Since the age of 10 I have participated in various choirs and ensembles. I’ve been singing and playing music at Living Hope since the very beginning in 1997 and was excited to join the staff in 2012. My wife Kristina and I live in Bedminster with our sons, Myles and Morgan. When I’m not working I love to spend time with my family, as well as hunt, fish, and ski.
Cathy Muscara, Children's Ministry Director
I love: spending time with God, my family, and friends young and not-so-young
My family and I first came to Living Hope in December 2013, and I soon got involved in Children's Ministry and as a Welcome Center volunteer before joining the staff in January 2016. My favorite thing about Living Hope is the services on Sunday, with the authentic worship and dynamic preaching. I’m originally from Pittsburgh, which means that I’m a big fan of the Steelers and Pirates! My husband Steve and I now live in Kintnersville and we have two amazing adult children, Joe and Natalie. Natalie married the man of her dreams, Dave, and they are celebrating the birth of their son, Wyatt, who is the best grandson ever!
Wilson McSwain, Student Ministry Director
What I love: Jesus, my family, and hunting in the great outdoors
What I don’t love: spiders, speed limits, and celery
I was born and raised in the GREAT Pacific Northwest, Seattle Washington. I graduated high school and then attended Torchbearer's Bible School in 2010 in Winterpark, Colorado where I met my wife, Lauren. I worked as a Junior High Youth Director for a church in Washington from 2011-2013. I helped start a non profit speaking ministry called, Lovin' Life Ministries in 2013 with a friend in Minnesota where we preached at youth camps, retreats, churches and youth groups all over the world. From 12 kids in Nebraska to a Bible school in England and a music festival in Colorado with a raceway filled with over 40,000 people, we were blessed to share the Gospel with others. Since moving to Pennsylvania in 2015, I have worked in various construction jobs while helping with the non profit and loving my family and son, Braxton, and daughter, Willow. God has always put youth on my heart and I will always desire to disciple and train teens in the way they should go, Loving Jesus, and Reaching others!
Bethani Wright, Communications Director
I love: coffee time with Jesus; my husband, John; my kids, K&Z;
my parent's The Coffee Scoop coffee, Great Danes, and the Grand Tetons, and flying around in my Mini Cooper S
My family and I have been a part of Living Hope since 2015, and I was happy to join the staff in February 2016. I love Living Hope because Jesus is unmistakably prominent here ... just hang around the Hope Café where you're sure to make a connection. My husband John and I were married in 1992, and we live in Perkasie with our adult children, Kait and Zack. Email Bethani.
Kara King, Office Administrator
I love Jesus, themed parties, organization, and olive wood.
After working in youth ministry and children’s ministry for the past 11 years, I moved to PA in July 2017 to start my life with my husband, Nate. We enjoy get-togethers and BBQ’s and are in the midst of renovating a farmhouse here in Perkasie. I enjoy patterns and colors, history, and researching my genealogy. I’ve loved what I’ve observed so far at Living Hope, a warm, friendly church community, and I’m looking forward to seeing how God might use me as a part of the team.
Marlene Landis, Welcome Center Coordinator
I love: my morning quiet times with God, my husband, everything Alaskan, and Penn View Farm chocolate milk
My journey at Living Hope began when I met my husband, Jared, in the fall of 2015. He was attending Hope Young Adults for their Bible studies and soon Living Hope and Hope Young Adults became a major part of my life. At the time I recently returned from serving as a missionary in Alaska and I found community and true friendship here at Living Hope through the Hope Young Adult group. In the summer of 2017, God blessed me with the opportunity to join the wonderful staff here at church as the Welcome Center Coordinator. What drew my husband and I to Living Hope was how intentional they are to build deep and strong friendships and it is that sense of community that keeps us attending on Sundays. When I am not in the office, my husband and I enjoy biking, working on projects together, and dreaming of future plans. We are always up for exploring and new adventures and love to include our friends.
Doug Rohrman, Care Ministry Director
I joined the Living Hope staff on August 7th and will be directing our Care ministry. I've been involved in the social work/counseling profession for over 40 years. At Living Hope, I look forward to serving both people in need and our teams who work with them.
Clarice and I have attended Living Hope for the past 6 years. We've been privileged to be part of the Grace Point family and a Life group - as well as providing leadership for our Life group and mentoring ministries.
Our son is Pastor to Students at a nearby church. He and his wife have 3 (energetic) boys. Our daughter & husband live in North Jersey and they have a 2 1/2 yr. old girl - who is, of course, a little princess. Supporting and loving our kids and grandkids is a great joy for us.
I admit to being out of step with the Living Hope staff in a number of ways. I don't drink coffee (but like all things mocha). I prefer old school technology. I grew up in inner city Philadelphia. And I collect African American music (traditional gospel, jazz & vocal group harmony) circa 1940-1960 - in glorious, fidelity-rich vinyl.
But I share these passions with our staff: I love our Savior, our church family and the community in which God has placed our church. I look forward to what He has in store for Living Hope as we seek to be light and salt in our community.
Bryan Giberson, Bookkeeper
I love: my family, listening to music while I work, experimenting with cooking and spending time with my friends.
I joined the Living Hope Team in 2017 and have greatly enjoy my time here. I am the Bookkeeper and enjoy working with numbers. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for me here and growing with the people I have met and will meet.
