Get to know the ones God has called to shepherd the New Hope family


Pastor Robbie Lankford

Robbie serves as the Lead Pastor for New Hope. He accepted Jesus as his personal Savior and Lord when he was 12 years old at a Vacation Bible School children’s program at a church close to his home in Georgia. When he was in high school, he met Shannon and was first exposed to ministry through her family and dad who was a pastor.

After completing his Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Philosophy, Robbie and Shannon were married and moved to North Carolina to complete his Master of Divinity. During their time there, the Lord began putting New York on their hearts. On February 2, 2000, they moved their family to Queensbury to start New Hope. They have 4 children who have all grown up in New York and at New Hope! The Lankfords thank the Lord for the privilege of being able to be a part of such a special church family and wonderful community!
