Hope is from Watertown, South Dakota and came to Brookings to attend college at SDSU. She attended the kick-off event for Oasis shortly after arriving and has been excited to come back every Sunday night since! After spending a Spring Break in New York on the mission trip with OASIS, Hope jumped into the worship team and got involved in many other ministries at GracePoint. She has been a youth leader for the past three years and has served on Sunday morning, night, and Wednesday night worship teams. Hope also spent a summer as a GracePoint intern learning about and growing as a worship leader. Hope will graduate with a Bachelors degree in Music Education in May 2017 and will start immediately after as the GracePoint Next Gen Worship Coordinator. She couldn’t be more excited and feels so blessed to spend everyday worshipping God with students and the congregation of GracePoint.
Hope loves to be active whether that be doing yoga or walking with friends and their dogs or reading books. She drinks a large amount of coffee and tea and eats way too much Qdoba. Photography is a huge part of Hope's life and she spends her summers shooting weddings and portraits of many different kinds. Time with friends and family makes her happy and fills her up.
