Our Leadership

We are led

Believers who invest their hearts, time, families, and finances in the building of a local church deserve to have confidence in church leadership. People are looking for leaders who conduct themselves with integrity and respect when making decisions that affect their lives.

1. WE ARE GUIDED BY PASTORS.

Our staff team is led by the Lead Pastor. This team oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church. They serve the congregation and are responsible for the development of the spiritual life of the church. The Lead Pastoral Team members serve as Staff Elders (this team is still developing). The One Hope Church Lead Pastor is Joshua Canizaro.

2. WE ARE PROTECTED BY TRUSTEES.

The Trustees are members/leaders of the congregation who oversee the finances and direct the provision of the facilities needed by the church. They provide counsel to the Lead Pastoral team regarding the major financial commitments of the church. The Trustees serve as Non-staff Elders.

The Trustees for One Hope Church are:

  • Stephen Cali
  • Will Place

3. WE ARE STRENGTHENED BY OVERSEERS.

The Overseers are pastors of nationally respected congregations and ministries who love One Hope Church and are willing to provide spiritual protection to the church. They may be called in to help in accountability matters relating to the Lead Pastor if requested by the Staff or Trustees. The Overseers serve as Apostolic Elders.

The Overseers for One Hope Church are:

  • Pastor Chris Hodges - Church of the Highlands, Alabama
  • Pastor David Russell - Church of the Highlands, Alabama
  • Pastor Steve Blair - Church of the Highlands, Alabama
  • Pastor Hal Santos – Grace Church, Illinois
