Pastor Travis Howard and his wife Lachelle have been at New Hope Baptist Church since, June 26th 2011. They Lord has blessed them with one daughter, Laken and two twin boys, Merrick and Maverick.

During their time at New Hope Baptist, God has really Blessed our Church. We have seen many individuals saved and baptized, and added to the Church.

 Pastor Howard is originally from the Shenadoah Valley, in Waynesboro, Virginia. He grew up attending an old fashioned Baptist Church from the time he was three years old. After making several false professions, on January 10, 1999 at the age of 23, Travis was born again. Shortly after being saved, he surrendered to the Lord's call to preach the Gospel. He then attended Bible College. Pastor Howard is a 2007 graduate from, Calvary Baptist Bible College in King, North Carolina.  Pastor Howard also Preaches in Revivals, Campmeetings, Bible Conferences and Youth camps all across the USA.  He has also travelled abroad and Preached in the United Kingdom.   

Lachelle is from Yadkinville, North Carolina and is a 2007 graduate of Piedmont Baptist College. She is a piano teacher. Together, they love their life serving The Lord as a Family!
