faculty

The faculty of New Hope are dedicated to the educational and spiritual growth of the students.

New Hope has a well educated faculty, many of which have served in vocational ministry in the past. As a College, we strive to hire quality instructors who combine a mastery of subject matter, engaging teaching techniques and a passion for serving Jesus to better equip students for the ministry and marketplace.
