CU to host Tennessee pastor at chapel Sept. 15

By Joan C. McKinney

Campbellsville, KY - Josh Huisman, senior pastor of New Hope Community Church in Brentwood, TN, will be the 10amET chapel speaker on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, at Campbellsville University's Ransdell Chapel, 401 N. Hoskins Ave., Campbellsville, KY.

At this time, masks are required for all in-person gatherings on the Campbellsville University campus. The university follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Commonwealth of Kentucky guidelines on best practices.

The church's website calls New Hope Community Church a "growing, generous body of believers committed to pursuing a relentless, unrestricted relationship with Jesus Christ."

The website also said, "Josh has a passion for creativity and is always looking for new and interesting ways to share the timeless truths of the gospel. It is not uncommon for him to use music, drama and storytelling throughout his messages."

Huisman and his wife, Sarah, began their time at New Hope in the youth ministry. They served teenagers for eight years before Huisman became the senior pastor.

In May 2013, Huisman received a Master of Theological Studies from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.

The website said, "Today, he is excited to lead New Hope Community Church into a bright future that will involve a God-sized time of growth, both physically and spiritually."

Huisman's favorite scripture is Romans 8:28: "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose."

He and his wife and children: Tyler, Jordan, Mary Beth and Alyssa live in Nashville.
