Joe and Teena Skiles became lead pastors of New Hope Church in November 2015. They bring to the East Bay a touch of their mid-western charm and contagious passion for God and people. They have served together in ministry for over 20 years and are committed to reaching all generations for Jesus Christ. Through previous ministry opportunities, they have traveled the world and have ministered nationally and internationally. It is their desire that people of all ages experience God in such a way that their journeys are impacted and they become an inspiration for others to discover God. The Skiles love living in Northern California. They have four beautiful daughters (Brooke, Alexandrea, Courtney, and Maisie) and a Boston Terrier named, Walter Mitty. Family favorites consist of sports, the great outdoors, traveling, coffee and good conversations.
