Our Leadership

Lee Yoder

Elder

Tell us about your family and work: Hannah and I have now been married for almost 12 years and have two incredible kids, Emma and Hudson. They are both learning about God and His love for them more and more every day. Emma accepted Jesus as her savior earlier this year! Hannah is still a licensed RN, but currently spends her time homeschooling our kids (they attend Charis Classical Academy, a homeschool hybrid program), cooking, gardening, and doing everything in our home. I just recently stopped practicing physical therapy and I am now a full-time real estate investor. I’ve had a passion for real estate and entrepreneurship for several years, but it was hard to leave a steady W2 with good benefits. As we were able to build up our real estate portfolio and our team, I felt that God was calling us to take a leap of faith. So, I left my PT career, and we started our own real estate company. Throughout this journey, Hannah and I have prayed frequently, often crying out, for God to make clear His path for us. We have our own ambitions, especially me, but we long to truly follow His will for our family. He has been so gracious to us in this journey, and we know he’ll continue to provide for us according to His will for us.

When did you become an Elder?  I became an elder in June of 2021.

Tell us about your passion for ministry:  My wife, Hannah, and I are all-in on Hope’s vision and mission for living The Life- loving God, loving people, and discipling others to do the same. We long to continue helping one another discover grace, grow together, and make disciples of Jesus who will multiply. For the past few years, we have served on the leadership team for the Cultivate Community, and I frequently lead the discussion. I’m also active with the Men of Hope. Hannah and I are excited to serve more frequently alongside our kids now that they are old enough to participate more. We have started to serve in our local community through homeless shelters and food banks, and we look forward to finding more opportunities to restore the broken.
