I have been Assistant Pastor of New Hope since 2000 and a member since 1995.  My wife Loukia and I have 2 kids.  I am originally from India. I grew up Hindu and was saved as a teen, in India.  I came to the U.S. in 1991 as an International student. My wife is of Greek background. Email Ajay by clicking here.


Andrew Bertodatti

Assistant Pastor

I’ve had the privilege of serving at New Hope since 2013, serving as an intern for 2+ years and then coming on staff as a pastor in 2016.  I grew up in Long Island and have lived in New York for most of my life. I attended Baptist Bible Seminary (Clarks Summit, PA) and did my undergrad at Binghamton University in Binghamton, NY, the place where I came to faith. I’m grateful for the privilege to serve God and the people at New Hope and excited to see him change lives here in Queens!
