Senior Pastor, Mike LeClaire

Pastor Mike LeClairHello, my name is Pastor Mike LeClaire, and I am the senior pastor of Living Hope Church. It’s hard to believe that I have been serving here for over 30 years; I started in 1984 as the youth director. Before becoming the senior pastor, I was a teacher in the public school system for 29 years. I have been married to my beautiful wife Sally for 31 years and we have three grown children. We also have 3 awesome grandchildren.

Thanks for taking the time to check out our website. If you don’t have a church home, I am sure you would feel more than welcome here at Living Hope Church. We would love to get to know you.

Associate Pastor Donny Olson, Pastoral Care

Pastor Donny OlsonIf you have never needed it, consider yourself blessed! Or maybe you weren’t aware it existed, and for that, be grateful. Here are just a few of the situations or circumstances that could require Pastoral Care…Hospital visits, Nursing home visits, In-home prayer and Communion.

It is not just for the elderly. Single parents in need, in – family death or trauma could also trigger a Pastoral Care response. We will do our best to encourage, pray and help in anyway we are capable.

Please do not hesitate contacting me if you are in need of prayer, a visit or assistance in any way.

I have an incredible husband, two grown daughters, a son-in-law and one precious granddaughter. Living Hope Church has been my home for 30 plus years. Come visit and experience the family of God. We are a warm and friendly church family. I look forward to meeting you.

Associate Pastor Joel Bosacki, Youth

Joel BosackiAs Youth Director, I have three main goals in mind as we teach and mentor your kids each week:

  • To present the Truth to your teenager in no uncertain terms.
  • To be an ally with you- the parent, in the training up of your young person in God’s love and truth.
  • To disciple and develop leaders in a world so desperate to be loved.

To accomplish these goals, we have weekly services including music, games and Bible-based teaching geared specifically for teens. Kids often get a chance to share what’s going on in their lives, are able to be involved in singing, playing in the worship band, running power point or sound equipment among other activities!
