Meet Our Staff


Phillip M. Enderle, Senior Pastor

Passionate about winning souls for Christ, Pastor Enderle knows it's all about grace and God's incredible and unquenchable love for us in Him. He loves every aspect of the ministry, from preaching and teaching, counseling and visitation, to administration and strategic planning; all the while meeting people where they're at.

In his nearly 30-year ministry, he has served a mission congregation in Huntsville, Alabama, Milwaukee, and a church in Warrens, Wisconsin, where he spent the last fourteen years before coming to Hope. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in Christian counseling.

Since meeting his soulmate and best friend Katherine in 1993, their marriage has been richly blessed with four wonderful children - Jonathan, Anna, Michael, and Sarah.

He enjoys spending time with his family, reading, staying active, working outside, and taking on do-it-yourself house renovation projects to varying degrees of success. He also very much enjoys laughing, which comes in handy with the home projects.

Jessica Finley, Director of Parish Music

Jessica graduated from Tahoma High School in 2001, then moved to sunny Southern California to attend Concordia University, Irvine. She continued to follow her passions for music and ministry by serving as Chapel Coordinator, Bible Study leader, Worship Team participant and leader, and Youth Ministry Team leader. She was also active in the university’s choir and handbells, and was fortunate to tour Brazil and many regions of the United States with these groups. She graduated in 2005 with double majors in Music (piano) and Christian Education Leadership (Director of Christian Education Ministry).

Jessica interned at, and was subsequently called to, St. Mark Lutheran Church in Phoenix, AZ as the Minister of Youth and Music. She enjoyed being involved in Confirmation, youth retreats, worship team, choir, handbells, and everything in between. It was during this time that she met her husband, Jon. They were married on April 11, 2008.

In 2009, Jessica transitioned to teaching in the public school system. She taught the 1st and 5th-8th grades in south Phoenix. During this time she continued to volunteer at her local church as a praise band member and substitute worship leader.

In their spare time, Jessica and Jon enjoy playing games, watching movies, and seeing the various sights of Texas. Jon loves watching football, and continues to hold out hope that his Buffalo Bills will one day win a Super Bowl. Jessica would NEVER point out to him that her hometown Seattle Seahawks have already won the Super Bowl….no, never...
