Artists often have a difficult time finding outlets for their creative talents in church, but creativity is one of the main tools New Hope uses in their outreach efforts.
Kristi St. Mary has a love and talent for both music and art and loves using them to draw people to Christ. She grew up on the road, singing full time with her family's traveling music ministry. She now leads people to worship at New Hope. Her son, Samuel, is a drummer on the Worship Team.
Kristi also heads up the creative team and loves working with other artists to find and develop new and creative ways to proclaim the gospel. Their efforts can be seen in and around the ministries of New Hope throughout the year, but most notably at the "Journey Trails" evangelistic outreach event for teens and young adults in October.
