Hope's Pastor

Pastor Amy Wright

Pastor Amy joined Hope in 2020, and was officially installed as the 14th pastor on February 27, 2022. Originally from Minnesota, she earned a B.A. in Religion & Communication Studies from Gustavus Adolphus College, and received her M. Div. at Princeton Theological Seminary. 

Music Director

Mike Mekailek has been Hope's Music Director since 2013, where he serves as organist and choir director. Before coming to Hope, he served at several churches in northern Delaware. Also an opera singer, he is no stranger to the stage - and has been known to add some theatrics into worship - and can be seen performing throughout the region.

Administrative Assistant

Danielle Lanteri came to Hope in September of 2017 as the administrative assistant. She has an extensive background in marketing and non-profits, and she is happiest when providing life-enhancing services to individuals and communities. When she isn’t spending time with her daughter and grandson or her best friend of 65 years, she enjoys music (especially opera), reading (especially cowboy romances), and staying physically fit.
