Our staff


Senior Pastor - Dr. Danny Emory

When he is not studying for his messages, Pastor Danny enjoys working on his John Deere tractors. He and his wife, Barbara have 3 adult daughters and 10 grandchildren, 7 on earth and 3 in heaven.


Youth Director - Jamie Buchanan

My name is Jamie Buchanan. I am the youth director at Hopewell Baptist Church. My wife and I have been married for 19 years and we have 3 children and a son-in-law. We believe God has called us, in partnership with parents, to invest in the next generation of young people. The youth are the future of the church so to me it is important to be able to gain their trust and respect first and foremost. I have found with my 25 years of experience working with youth that you have to make them feel a part of what is going on so I strive to do that in my daily Christian walk. I want to inspire them to take faith filled risks and rely on God in all situations. My prayer daily is that when they leave the youth department here at Hopewell that each of them have a passion of Jesus and be the light in this dark world.

Children's Director - Emily Reece

My name is Emily Buchanan Reece. I am the children’s director at Hopewell Baptist Church. I was born and raised in the church as a youth pastor's daughter. I have always had a love for the kids and wanted to help them grow in their faith.  I am super excited about being the children’s church director! My goal for our children's ministry is for every child to come to know God, and out of that gain knowledge to live for him, and serve others. I look forward to working with your children and helping them grow in their faith as a little one.
