Brian Boisen, Pastor
Brian began his work as the pastor of Hope in 1999. While he was a little wet behind the ears at first, the congregation was patient and kind and he learned and grew, and they have enjoyed a long and blessed relationship together over the years.
Brian’s greatest passion is for knowing Jesus and helping others to grow in their relationship with Him. He tries to be intentional in pursuing this goal in all he does. Brian and Kerry were married in 1993, and they raised their three children in Rogue River for so long that they are no longer children. Jack, Zoey, and Grace are off on their own adventures, and Brian and Kerry enjoy every chance they get to connect with them. Kerry is a nurse, working as the Nurse Supervisor in Rogue Regional Medical Center’s Behavioral Health Department. Brian received his bachelor’s degree in biblical studies from Vanguard University, his master’s degree in church history from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, as well as his Master of Divinity degree from San Francisco Theological School. Along with his work at Hope, Brian teaches the Old Testament Survey and Gospels courses at Pacific Bible College in Medford.

Larry Allen, Worship Leader
Larry has been involved with music at Hope in one way or another since 2011. He believes that music is an integral part of our communicating with God as we worship and honor Him. He eventually became our Music Director, and we have been richly blessed by his heart for our Lord and his many gifts. Larry enjoys moving us forward with contemporary worship while mixing in traditional Christian songs in order to honor the wonderful history of worship in the church. Larry’s wonderful wife Tricia often adds to our experience with percussion, and their two daughters play an active part in our church family.
