Jim Tinsley - Pastor of Student Ministries

I serve as the Pastor of Student Ministries who focuses on our high school students. My days are spent building relationships with students and helping them and their families navigate the questions that arise in the adolescent years. If I had to label out my heart, or my hope, for each student that walked through our doors it would simply be that they would come to know Christ and his crazy passionate love for them and to encourage them to respond with a surrendered life. Beyond those things, I provide leadership and vision for the Student Ministry staff and volunteers while developing weekly programming, curriculum thoughts, and student leaders. I am married to Kelly and have three energetic boys: Cooper, Matthew and Hudson. I enjoy basketball, nature, & McAllister's sweet tea. You can reach me at 513.459.0800 ext. 370 or at

David Wilson - Director of Junior High Ministries

Hello, I’m the director of Jr. High ministries. What that means is I coordinate all the happenings of the Jr. High at Hope Church. I organize Fuel, Ignite, as well as other monthly events designed for Jr. High students to grow closer to their creator. I also train and equip volunteers to minister to Jr. High students. I love being with Jr. High students a lot. They give me a ton of energy. You can catch us at King’s Island riding some roller coasters, sipping on some unsweet tea with lemon from McAlister’s Deli, and digging into God’s word as we figure out who God is and what He desires from our lives. You can reach me at the office by calling (513) 459-0800 ext. 311 or by email at

Lindsey Oliva - Director of Student Women

As the Director of Student Women, I get the privilege of working alongside the student ministries staff team to assist in leading students, specifically girls, grades 6-12 into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. My philosophy of student ministries is you must earn the right to be heard, because of that, I take great joy in pouring the majority of my time and energy into building relationships with our student women. When I’m not hanging out with students I assist in encouraging and training our volunteers and supporting both our Jr. and Sr. High Ministries administratively. I have worked with students in ministry since I graduated high school and have been on staff at Hope since 2009.  In my spare time you’ll find me enjoying meals with friends and family, playing games or sports, and relaxing on my couch watching television. You can reach me at 513.459.0800 ext. 321 or at
