Hope Carpenter

Pastor Hope Carpenter knows all about what it’s like to live your own personal disaster. At 35 years old, an emotional breakdown spurred by childhood trauma drove this pastor’s wife and mom into deep dysfunction and marital infidelity. At the end of the self-destructive road she’d walked, she encountered the true, unconditional love of Jesus— a restoring force that would change her from the inside out, restoring her marriage and her ministry.


These days, Hope is an author, co-pastor of Redemption Church in Greenville, SC and San Jose, CA, and renowned worldwide minister. On this episode of Trevor Talks, Hope shares about the ways that faith and mental health have run parallel throughout her story, offering a picture of redemptive beauty born through disaster.
