About Hope


Todd McCullough

Lead Pastor

Todd has been the pastor at Hope since July of 2013. He is married to Amber who has been his best friend, confidant and partner in ministry since they met in college at Pfeiffer University. They have three beautiful children, Jackson, K├Ąthe and Ellie, who keep them very busy.

Todd graduated from Pfeiffer in 2005 where he double majored in Youth Ministry and Christian Education with a minor in Religion. During his time at Pfeiffer, he developed his call into vocational ministry and continued his education at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University where he earned his Masters of Divinity in 2009.

While at Candler, he served in many different ministry settings and developed a passion for those whom found themselves on the fringe of society. Todd is passionate about creating environments for all people to feel welcome and accepted and inviting people to walk alongside each other. He loves good music, good coffee, the South Carolina Gamecocks and talking about Jesus' love for the world.

He feels tremendously blessed to be the pastor at Hope and looks forward to meeting you soon.
