Pastor F. Mark Walters, Interim Pastor
Pastor Mark joined Hope in December 2023. Retired as a full time pastor, Pastor Mark has recently served as a leadership coach.
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.
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.
