Rev. David G. Woods is our lead pastor and an ordained Elder in the Church of the Nazarene. He has previously pastored churches on two districts in Ohio, and served on staff at a Church in suburban Washington D.C.
He and his wife Karen have two adult children. Their son, Joshua and his wife, Rebekah, have brought extra delight to the family with grandson, Metzger and his baby sisters, Charlotte and Abigail. The Woods' daughter, Andréa and her husband, Matt, add a West Coast influence to the family.
Pastor David and Karen give great praise to God for allowing them the incredible privilege of serving Him and His Church among the people of Hopewell.
