Our Lead Pastors


Pastor Jonathan gave his heart to Jesus Christ when he was a young child. The oldest son of the Founding Pastors, Steve and Sharon Stells, he felt a call to ministry at a young age. Pastor Jonathan has been on staff for 13 years and loves to see people grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Pastor Jonathan received his B.A. degree in Leadership Studies from the University of Richmond. He went on to receive his M.A. degree in Practical Theology from Oral Roberts University. Jonathan and his wife Ami took the Lead Pastors position at the church in 2013. They have two children, Colin and Isabella, who really make life fun.

Pastor Ami committed her life to Jesus Christ when she was a young child. Finding the church when her family moved from the Pittsburgh, P.A. area when she was young, Pastor Ami felt a strong call from God to serve the church. She has a passion to see people’s lives changed by the love and truth of God. Along with being a mom to two amazing kids, Colin & Isabella, Pastor Ami also has served on staff for 7 years. She received her B.A. degree in Psychology from Liberty University.

Jonathan and Ami Stells have a passion to see the lost come into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ and be discipled to follow Jesus and accomplish his purposes for their lives. Jonathan has been engaged in full time ministry for over 15 years, serving in virtually every area of the church. They love the Church of Jesus Christ and have a deep passion to see Hope Point Church do all that God has called it to do. They have two wonderful children, Colin Parker and Isabella Grace, and love time with their family.
