Our Pastor


Pastor Paulo Freire came to shepherd Hope Church in 1998.   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 have two grown sons and one still at home: Tyler, Micah and Elias.   The Freires reside in Wantage, NJ.   When not behind the pulpit our pastor enjoys preaching at other churches, teaching other pastors through the EFCA Gateway Bible Institute program or simply coaching soccer with his son in the community.  After decades of life in urban centers, Pastor Paulo greatly appreciates the serene natural surroundings of Sussex County.
