Thurman Family
 
Thurman Collier
Senior Pastor
Hello. I am Pastor Thurman Collier. My family and I arrived at Hopewell in October of 2007. I am married to my High School sweetheart, Vicki. Vicki and I have been married for 30 years and we have four wonderful children; Ashlynn, Erica, Casey, and Jacob.
 
The Lord has given us the opportunity to be in ministry for over nineteen years and has allowed us the chance to serve in many different capacities throughout those years. Prior to arriving at Hopewell, we served for over eight wonderful years as the Youth Pastor’s at the Great Bridge Church of God in Chesapeake, Virginia. While at Great Bridge, many doors were opened for us to work with many different groups of all ages. We also were able to travel to other places like Peru and Romania to serve and to lead.
 
Our passion is to see God work through us to bring restoration and help to the family. We believe that the Lord has established the family and it is our desire to see families healthy, happy, and fulfilling the purpose God has given to each of us.

Cris Bovinette
Care Pastor
 
Hello! My name is Cris and I am a child of God. I am a mom to five amazing children, Ricky, Ryan, Julia, Kristen, and Kaylin. I’m also a grandma to nine beautiful grandbabies, too many to name. I was born and raised in Texas, but I’ve been living in Virginia since 1994. Virginia is home to me.
 
I’ve been attending CPRCOG since the Summer of 2000. The main reason I stayed here is because I always felt the presence of God here and the people have always been so loving. I completed “Calling and Ministry Studies” (CAMS) through Church of God and received my credentials on June 7th 2017. I’ve also completed Ministerial Internship Program (MIP) on May 2019.
 
On January of 2018 God provided an opportunity to be Care Pastor for our church. God has really helped me to grown through this ministry. I’ve learned that people are all so different but two things everyone craves is love and being cared for. Praying for others is also a call God has on my life; being a prayer warrior for God’s children is an honor. God lays so much in my heart and spirit that I’m able to share through our Sunday School Classes. I am also involved in our nonprofit organization, City of Refuge Hopewell. My passion is for broken women and I pray that God will set me up where I can minister to women all over the world. God Bless.

Bethany Collier
Music Pastor
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hello! My name is Bethany, and leading people into worship is my passion and calling. Worship got me through when nothing else could. Our praise is a heart song that God hears and it is used as a weapon to defeat the enemy. When we sing heaven invades the earth. There’s no greater feeling than the presence of God filling the room when God’s people being to praise. My goal is always cultivating our worship team towards a genuine worship atmosphere where we can operate freely in God’s presence and see lives being changed. 
 
I grew up around music my whole life and have been singing since before I could remember. I have been attending CPR for eight years and through that time I have attended CAMS (Calling and Ministry Studies) and received my Exhorter credentials. I am married to the love of my life, Jacob, and we have two beautiful children. Family means everything to us! We are blessed beyond measure. Outside of music ministry, I am a cosmetologist by day. I love being creative! Of all my job titles though, being a mom is my favorite.
