James Furlong

Digital Media Engagement Director 

James joined the Hope Church staff in March of 2022. He is married to his wife Courtney, who moved to Wisconsin from Illinois. James was doing Student Ministry for seven years, but during the COVID-19 pandemic, they found massive joy in digital media and felt called by God to serve the online community.

James felt Hope’s vision perfectly fit him as he grew up in the church but walked away at 18. He is passionate about bringing people hurt by the church back to a relationship with God.
