His life mission is helping people reach their full potential in Christ. He shows value and makes everyone feel valuable in Christ. His preaching and teaching is practical while challenging along with a contagious sense of humor. He enjoys reading and traveling with his wife, Jean.

  • Marcus Constantine Student Ministries Director
    Marcus.constantine@hopechurchalive.org

    Marcus has a heart to see students of all ages equipped to walk closely with Jesus, develop a life of prayer and love for the Word, and use their spiritual gifts to reach others. He was blessed to meet his wife Bridget during their studies at Moody Bible Institute. They served together in Africa before coming on staff at Hope and have a big heart for the nations. Marcus seeks to live by Acts 20:24, "I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the Gospel of God's grace." When Marcus isn't teaching about Jesus, he enjoys reading a quality book, musical worship, and connecting with friends over tea or an Italian meal.

  • Jesse Eells Staff  Pastor

    Jesse came on staff in 2001 and serves as a staff pastor over our Family and Children's ministries. He has a passion for helping people connect with the love of Christ and the truth of God's Word through the visual arts. When he's not writing a puppet script for Family Night, producing a video or working with the arts department on the next stage design, you'll find him spending time with his amazing wife and kids. Jesse and his wife Shona have three kids- Micah, Levi, and Ava. They love adventurous bike rides together as well as occasionally getting out to do some rock climbing. 

  • Jed Manders Staff Pastor

    How has God been at work in your life? If you run into Jed, you might be prompted with this very question. He's relational, funny, and always challenging people to grow in a deeper walk with Christ. Jed joined Hope Church in 2014 as a Staff Pastor, focusing on small group ministry, assimilation, and counseling. In his free time, Jed enjoys time with his wife, Dawn, and three daughters: Joselyn, Jillian, and Jadia. They love many things outdoors including boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, and bike riding. God's creation is absolutely amazing!
