The Leadership of Hope Church exists to equip and send out men and women who have been formed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We serve under the authority of Bishop Steven A. Breedlove of the Diocese of Christ Our Hope and the Anglican Church in North America.

Bishop | The Rt. Rev. Steven A. Breedlove
Bishop Steve Breedlove is the Bishop Ordinary of our Diocese. He and Sally married in 1972 and were blessed with five children, all married now, and (so far!), with eleven grandchildren. They live in Chapel Hill, NC. The Lord has blessed Sally with a ministry of spiritual direction, writing, and speaking (firstname.lastname@example.org), but more than anything, she seeks to know and love the Lord, her family, and her friends. Bishop Steve was a non-denominational pastor for 29 years before becoming an Anglican in 2001. He and Sally planted All Saints Church in Durham, NC, in 2005. In 2012 he was consecrated bishop. Pastoring pastors, teaching God’s word, helping leadership teams unite and grow in strategic mission, developing next-generation leaders, and strengthening local churches in mission, discipleship, and worship are all aspects of a bishop’s ministry where he sees God’s lavish kindness at work.
