EUGENE MILLER

LEAD PASTOR

I love: The Lord, my wife and family, and riding motocross!
After attending Liberty University and Biblical Theological Seminary, I came to Living Hope in 1999 as the first pastor of a young church plant. Previously I was serving as a Youth Pastor in West Chester and still have a heart for reaching the next generation of disciples and leaders for Christ. It is exciting to see how Living Hope has grown over the years and to be a part of all God is doing in our community and world. When I’m not at the church, I like to surf, hunt, drink good coffee, ride motocross, and ride my Harley with my wonderful wife Diana. We live right here in the community of Dublin, which we love! We have two beautiful daughters, two awesome son-in-laws, and two incredible grandkids, Braxton and Willow.

NICK CAMPAGNA

EXECUTIVE PASTOR OF MINISTRY

I love: My Wife, my daughters, and Italian wedding soup
EMAIL NICK
I joined the Living Hope Team in 2007 and consider it an honor to serve this community with love and joy. One of the best parts of my job is that I get to share, connect, minister, and disciple others to Christ. To ‘present everyone mature in Christ’ is my passion and goal. One of my other favorite things to do at Living Hope is play on the softball team! I’m a loyal fan of all Philly sports teams and I live in Perkasie with my wildly wonderful family.

TITUS BUCK

DOYLESTOWN CAMPUS PASTOR

I love: My wife Kristy, my 4 kids, good theology, and talking about what God is doing in my life.
I joined Living Hope in 2022 as Campus Pastor for Living Hope - Doylestown Campus. I am married to my wife, Kristy, and the proud Dad of four amazing kids. I am a graduate of Maranatha Baptist University and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and have been a part of two previous church plants. Most recently, I have been in corporate strategy for a global consulting firm. I am excited to see what God will do as Living Hope reaches out into Doylestown and the surrounding areas. I love to hunt, play golf, and enjoy coffee while studying good theology and biblical languages. I am particularly passionate about talking to people about what God has done in their life and how they can know him more deeply. If you see me, share something God has recently shown you from his word!

COLE SIMCOX

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

I love: My wife, our two sons, and everything outdoors
EMAIL COLE
I officially joined the staff team in 2012, as the Worship Ministries Director, but have been on Team Living Hope since its inception in 1997. I was privileged to be a part of those few families that pioneered a new church and started meeting in a barn in Bedminster, PA. Moving to my current role in 2021, I have a passion for creating safe, distraction free environments where the Truths of scripture can be heard. I get to manage an amazing staff of godly individuals who have a passion for the Lord and a pursuit of excellence. When I’m not creating memories with my wife and two boys I love to hunt, fish, and ski in the Rocky mountains.

CATHY MUSCARA

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY DIRECTOR

I love: My family, the beach and books (books on the beach with my family is the ultimate!)
EMAIL CATHY
God has taken my love for all things Jesus and all things children and combined them in to the most wonderful serve opportunity as Children's Ministry Director at Living Hope! I started volunteering in our Preschool room in 2015 and accepted the Children's Ministry position in 2016. It is an exciting honor to support our families as they disciple their children in following Jesus! Sunday dinner is the highlight of my week, enjoying homegrown goodies, fun with our farm animals, and best of all, time with my husband, children and grandchildren! Would you like to see pictures of my grandchildren?!

LEAH VILLAGRA

OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR

I love: Jesus, My husband, Camping, & Sunflowers
EMAIL LEAH
I first came to Living Hope in 2011 and later became involved with the children’s ministry team as a volunteer in preschool. I'm a graduate of Cairn University and was a member of the women’s soccer team. Outside of being in ministry, I volunteer for 4-H, enjoy road trips and being an auntie! I love being on staff here at Living Hope and I'm excited to see how the Lord will use us to further His Kingdom!

BEN OSBORN

WORSHIP MINISTRIES DIRECTOR

I love: My family, all things music, anything spicy, and the outdoors.
EMAIL BEN
I grew up in a very musically talented family and my father was the worship leader in our church growing up. Because of that, I have been involved in music for as long as I can remember. One of my passions is to lead people into authentic worship to the Lord through music. My wife Alicia and I both grew up in Delaware and got married in 2013. We relocated to Pennsylvania in 2015 and currently live in Telford with our 3 beautiful children, Colton, Briella, and Levi.

DAN PARFITT

COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR

I love: Film, philosophy, and the psychology of storytelling.
EMAIL DAN
I grew up on a small farm in Perkasie, where I was surrounded by four brothers, a sister, a number of animals, and an even larger number of old movies. I was raised in a Christian home, but it wasn't until late in high school when I decided to move churches that I began to really grow in my faith. Throughout my life, movies were a primary passion of mine, watching all that the Golden Age of Hollywood had to offer. Skip forward to today, and I’ve graduated from DeSales University with a BA in Media Studies & Communications. I spend much of my personal time listening to clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson, writing for film and print, and raising my low-left shot groupings at the range.

GEE HENDRICKS

GUEST CONNECTIONS COORDINATOR

I love: Worshiping the Lord, spending time with my husband, my family, and the many wonderful friends God has given me.
EMAIL GEE
My husband, Rick, and I came to Living Hope in January 2014. We have been so very blessed to be part of the body here and now I am very privileged to be part of the staff! With a background in education administration, I enjoy coordinating the Welcome Center both during the week and on Sundays. I love greeting and assisting our guests new and not so new. When not at the church building, I can be found cooking – I’m kind of a “foodie”, or quilting – I enjoy working with color and patterns. Rick and I live in our empty nest in Perkasie.

BRYAN GIBERSON

BOOKKEEPER

I love: Going on adventures with my daughter.
EMAIL BRYAN
I am a very private guy and find that family time is what is most important, especially nowadays. I enjoy reading/writing books and going on adventures with my amazing daughter. I am a quick and eager learner and try to help loved ones whenever I am able. A fun fact about me is that I have written four books but have only published one.

DAVE KIRKNER

PASTOR OF CARE

I love: In addition to God, my wife and family, I love preparation for and teaching the Bible, blessing people by helping or encouraging them, conversing with a friend while drinking coffee, listening to the Phillies on my transistor radio.
EMAIL DAVE
I was the 2nd of 3 boys and was blessed to grow up in Bucks County, in a home with parents who sincerely loved God, their boys and each other. Feeling as though I could never measure up, I rarely did. I was the 1 of 8 who was not chosen to move into the accelerated program in grade school, I graduated college with a C- average, had 3 knee surgeries, been fired 4 times, and have experienced a number of shattered dreams. But through it all God has always been sovereign, all-wise, loving, merciful, and kind. He has always had my “back” and my heart. Despite what seems like a lot of failure God has used me to teach and preach His Word, care about and for people, and enrich His Kingdom exponentially over 20+ years in professional ministry, the Academy and the marketplace. I am thrilled to be a part of this loving church and work with this incredible team. My wife Linda and I live in Chalfont and are the proud parents of two amazing adult children, Katie and Jon. Katie and her husband David are the parents of our grandson Joel.

JOSH HABERLE

STUDENT MINISTRIES DIRECTOR

I love: Cars, Snowboarding, and anything that goes BOOM
EMAIL JOSH
I first came to Living Hope when I was 13 years old in the gym of Plumstead Christian. God brought me back here after college to serve in student ministry. After 4 years of serving, I am blessed to serve God in this new way. I can usually be found working on my car, enjoying the woods in the summer, snowboarding in the winter, and playing with my dogs with my beautiful fiancé Kaitlyn. My passion is bringing teenagers to Christ through the most ridiculous games, unforgettable experiences, and real relationships.

KARISSA MURMYLO

WELCOME CENTER ADMINISTRATOR

I love: Quiet time with God in creation or coffee shops, my family, all things artsy, travel, and outdoor adventures.
EMAIL KARISSA
I began attending Living Hope in 2018 and made the decision to begin regular attendance by Easter in 2019! After that, I started volunteering for our elementary students and with Jr. High Hope Students. In January of 2022, God graciously provided the position of Welcome Center Admin. It is such a blessing to work with an amazing team and to connect with the individuals at Living Hope on Sundays and throughout the week. Aside from work, I enjoy art, music, spending time in creation, travel, and all kinds of recreational adventures!

SUSAN HALADAY

Formerly First Baptist of Doylestown Staff

I love: I love my family and the smell of the ocean air.
I began coming to First Baptist Church, now Living Hope Community Church, with my son sometime in 1994. I was baptized and became a member in 1995. I was married to Mike in 2000 and in 2006 became Bookkeeper for FBC now Living Hope. I have been blessed to be doing a job that I love, with people that I love, for a God that I love, ever since.


FRANK SHEAFFER

Formerly First Baptist of Doylestown Staff

I love: My wife, my kids, my grandkids, and Living Hope for rescuing us at First Baptist Doylestown.
I guess you could call me a slow learner - it took me over twenty-two years of observing my wife Carol live her faith out in front of me every day before I understood that she had something that I needed. Then it took Carol and I about two months to figure out that Living Hope had something that we needed. What a blessing it is that the Lord has given me the opportunity to be a part of a team of faithful believers with servants' hearts! We could not have imagined this a year ago. I can't wait for the transition to be completed so that we can again shine the light of Jesus' love out into the heart of our beloved Doylestown.

OUR ELDERS

We believe our Elders are the spiritual shepherds of the church. Our Elders commit to two year terms of service. They are able to serve three consecutive terms but are then required to step off of the elder board for a season of rest. Future Elders are identified among the congregation based upon the biblical characteristics found in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. Elder nominees are then voted on by our congregation annually.

A community of imperfect people striving to love God and others as we reach out to the world around us with the hope God has given us through Jesus Christ.
