Simon has been involved with Hope Church for many years, firstly as a visitor when coming from England to meet Rhonda, now his wife, they were maried by Pastor Mike in 2001. Simon and Rhonda, then lived for several years in England until in 2006 they moved to Tampa and became regular members of Hope Church. For Simon it was quite a break to leave his country, many of his family, start a new job, in fact there was not much more that could have changed in his life!
It is the love and fellowship that Simon found at Hope Church that enabled him to settle in Tampa and grow his faith. Simon connected with Hope Church supporting drama worship, editing the Church website, joining various small groups and lately helping with the sound and lighting at the Church.
Simon has wanted to continue to serve Hope Church and became a Deacon in 2012.
