Logan Spoon-Director of youth and worship

Logan Spoon has been on staff at Hope Church since November 2015. He was born and raised in South Carolina but is enjoying living in North Jersey! He cannot remember a time when Jesus was not a part of his life, but didn't really understand what it means to be loved by Jesus until attending Erskine College and learning about grace. It was also there that he met Joy, who stole his french fries and his heart, and later became his bride. Together they have four children: Nathan, Camden, Ian, and Ameryn. Logan plays guitar, loves ultimate frisbee, and would like to write children's books one day in addition to being a pastor.
