Pastor Tom Bellhy Pastor Tom Bellhy

Pastor Tom has been at New Hope Church for seven years and Pastor and Executive Director of New Hope City Center in Washington, PA. He earned his Master of Divinity degree from the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Pittsburgh, PA and is dedicated to bringing the Word of God to life in his preaching and teaching. In our weekly Bible Study, he has taught extensively through the Gospel of John, Letter to the Ephesians, Galatians, Acts, Romans and more. He has also led studies in Blackaby's "Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God," which he will start up again in the Summerl of 2016. Pastor Tom is also the teacher in New Hope Church's radio ministry "New Hope for Today" on 101.5 WORD-FM every Sunday at 7:00am. The recent sermon's are available online.

Pastor Tom has a passion for moving the 21st Century Church back to the contagious Christianity spread by the Holy Spirit from person to person in the 1st Century Church. In Pastor Tom's own words, "I believe we have a message to deliver to 'institutional' Christianity, to further the cause of re-reformation and redirect local churches toward a more “Acts” centered body of Christ empowering individual Christians to GO OUT and spread their 'Holy virus' of Christ."

Pastor Tom resides in Hickory, PA with his wife Jan, their five children and "G-ma" (Pastor Tom's mother). Along with his calling to preach and teach God's Word, he loves reading, and especially playing the guitar and singing for the Lord.
