About Hope


Jeremy Morris

Lead Pastor

Jeremy has been the Pastor at Hope since October 2017. He and his wife Laura moved to Hope from Black Mountain, North Carolina.

Jeremy went to Pfeiffer University where he majored in Religion and received his M.Div from Candler School of Theology at Emory University. He has a passion for spiritual formation and walking with others as they grow in faith.

In their free time, Jeremy and Laura can be found riding mountain bikes, running the occasional ultramarathon, or walking their rescue dogs, Blake and Colby around the mountains of WNC.

Melanie King

Office Manager

Melanie is originally from California and migrated East after meeting her now husband Brett. She has two adult children that live in California.

Melanie is a tremendously talented person. She primarily worked as a bookkeeper for large construction companies but took a chance on the church. She manages the office at Hope United and has become a jack of all trades. If you need assistance Melanie will be glad to help you out.

Terry Maybin

Director, Tomorrow's Hope CDC

Terry has been a part of the East Flat Rock Community all her life. She has served as the director of Tomorrow's Hope for over 15 years. With that tenure comes a wealth of information and tremendous leadership. Tomorrow's Hope is known in our community as one of the leaders in childcare and much of that credit is due to Terry and her amazing staff. Terry is married to Homer who is a jack-of-all-trades and they have several grown children together who live in the community as well. She enjoys cooking, hosting events and being a faithful member of her local church. If you would like more information about our program Terry would be more than happy to help!
