EUGENE MILLER , LEAD PASTOR
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 awesome son-in-law, and an incredible grandson, Braxton.
I love: My Wife, My Daughters, and Italian Wedding Soup
Adult Ministries Pastor
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.
I love: My Family, Music, And The Outdoors
WORSHIP MINISTRIES DIRECTOR
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, & ski.
I love: Spending Time With God, My Family, And Friends Young and Not-So-Young
CHILDREN’S MINISTRY DIRECTOR
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 who recently married the man of her dreams, Dave!
I love: Jesus, My Family, And Hunting In The Great Outdoors.
What I don’t love: Spiders, Speed Limits, and Celery.
STUDENT MINISTRY DIRECTOR
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. We were blessed to share the Gospel with others. I moved to Pennsylvania in 2014 our family has grown since with a 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!

My family and I have been a part of Living Hope since 2015, and I was happy to join the staff in 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 have been married for 27 years this year, and we live in Perkasie with our kids, Kait and Zack.
I love: I Love Jesus, Themed Parties, Organization, and Olive Wood.
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.
CARE MINISTRY DIRECTOR
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.
