Meet the Staff

Jonathan Nason

Lead Pastor

I have been the Lead Pastor of New Hope since January 2018.  Jenna and I have 3 kids and are from Memphis, TN.  We love this city and this church, but above all, we love Christ.  I love preaching and pastoring people to know and obey Christ.  A verse I live by is Ezra 7:10, “For Ezra set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statues in rules in Israel.”

Andrew Bertodatti

Associate 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!
