Pastor Craig Schultz brings a rich, full, productive and diverse ministry experience to New Hope Missions Church. Before beginning ministry here on March 1, 2013, he had served congregations in Indiana, Michigan and Nebraska and most recently in Claremont, North Carolina. During those tenures he has by God’s grace overseen building programs, started schools and sought to introduce a church and faith life that was directed by the Holy Spirit through the power of the Gospel.

He will assist New Hope in determining its future path while providing pastoral and spiritual oversight during the next twelve months. Pastor Schultz has a passion for teaching God’s Word and a desire that every one of God’s people be involved in the study of that Word. He intends to bring that passion and desire to New Hope along with the goal of helping New Hope grow into the genuine body of Christ as it reaches out with the love and hope of Christ to our community.​
