Our Staff

In addition to our pastor, there are four other staff members at New Hope Church


John Wise is the pastoral intern at New Hope.  He is currently completing his classes at Reformed Theological Seminary and will be receiving his Masters of Divinity in December.  He and his wife Farrah are Maryland natives and live minutes from the church with their twin daughter Alyssa and Alexis.


Gingy Socash is the administrative assistant for New Hope. She has attended New Hope since 1995 when she and her husband and family moved to Frederick from Pittsburgh, PA. She came on staff as administrative assistant in August of 2011 and very much enjoys working in the office.


Traci Poppert is the nursery coordinator at New Hope.  With an education in early childhood development, she is the perfect person to head up the nursery ministry.  As well as doing this job, she also supervises the children’s church program as a volunteer and helps to create the children’s bulletin each week. She and her husband and family have attended New Hope since 2005.


MIke Wolford is the custodian at New Hope Church and has been a faithful helper to us since New Hope was meeting at Parkway Elementary school 10 years ago.  Mike has two grown sons, Michael and Nathan, and also works for Frederick County Public Schools.
