Gospel Partners

As a church we have the privilege to support these Gospel Partners (missionaries) 

in the ministries and contexts that God has strategically placed them in. 

PAstor aaron - LHNC East

Pastor Aaron Roy was the founding pastor of Living Hope Neighborhood Church (which officially launched on Easter of 2009).  In August of 2017 he and his family relocated to Springfield, OH to plant a church there.  Their aim is to plant a gospel-centered, multi-ethnic, and multi-socioeconomic church.  Lord willing, Living Hope Neighborhood Church (east) will launch sometime in 2021.  

Aaron is married to his wife Sugar, and they have three children: Aaron, Isaiah, & Eden.  

Andrae Robinson - 117 project

Andraé is the Executive Director &  founder of the 117 Project.  It is a non-profit organization that comes alongside churches in under-resourced communities in order to serve children and families over the summer.  The 117 Project recruits and trains a team of college age and young adult interns to facilitate summer day camps as an outreach of the church.  This day camp, called "Love Richmond," has been hosted by LHNC and coordinated by the 117 Project summer team each summer since 2017.     


Andraé is married to Luna and they have two kids: Benjamin and Cecilia. 

Pastor bernard Emerson - tapestry oakland

Pastor Bernard Emerson is the lead pastor of Tapestry Church in Oakland CA.  Tapestry is an intentionally multi-ethnic church.  As their DNA statement puts it, "Tapestry is people of many cultures woven together into the fabric of Oakland to display the beauty of God's story."  Bernard also serves as the Urban Church Planting Specialist for Converge Pacwest and the Bay Area Director for World Impact. 


Pastor Bernard is marred to his wife Kim, and they have five children.  

Pastor dennis nsengiyumva

Pastor Dennis Nsengiyumva is the pastor of Abundant Life Church in Kigali, Rwanda.  Dennis also leads an inter-denominational network of pastors called the Pastor's Family Fellowship.  They meet regularly to encourage one another and collaborate in ministry throughout the city of Kigali.  Dennis is married to his wife Claudine and they have two children, Favor and Faith.  

We support two missionaries that serve overseas amongst unreached people groups. Unreached groups lack enough followers of Christ and resources to evangelize their own people.  These two missionaries serve in places that can be hostile to the gospel. For safety reasons we cannot include their photo and name on the internet.
