Exalt, Edify, Evangelize

Pastor Paulo Freire came to shepherd Hope Church 18 years ago.   He is a native of São Paulo, Brazil and was raised in NJ.  He is a graduate of the Moody Bible Institute where he attended with his wife Lisa.  They reside in Wantage, NJ with their three sons Tyler, Micah and Elias.   When not behind the pulpit our pastor enjoys preaching at other churches, teaching other pastors through the EFCA Gateway program or simply coaching soccer with his sons in the community.  After decades of life in urban centers, Pastor Paulo greatly appreciates the serene natural surroundings of Sussex County.
