As the founding Sr. Pastor of New Hope International, Bishop Poole began fulfilling his call to the ministry with only 25 members. Now, more than 20 years later, under his continued leadership, New Hope International has grown into a thriving 2,000 member, multicultural, nontraditional body of believers. He has both a passion and burden for the lost. His heart and vision for this ministry has been founded on the Word of God in Luke 4:18-19 “Jesus came to heal the brokenhearted and to set the captives free.”
Author of the life changing book, Conception to Reception: “Birthing the Life You’ve Always Dreamed Of”, and 2008’s Gospel Choice Award nominee for Top Ten Most Influential Pastors in the Region, Bishop Jeff Poole is steadily pacing himself to achieve great heights by performing the call on his life! Through his personally founded evangelical ministry, Jeff Poole Ministries, Bishop Poole is honored to travel across the country providing support to other ministries through mentorship, preaching and the production of his books, CDs and DVDs.
Bishop Poole is the CEO of Kingdom Impact, a performing arts and recreational sports program facility where young people develop leadership skills for life. Seeking every opportunity to translate church outside of the traditional four walls of a sanctuary, Bishop Poole and New Hope International serve as a conduit for several nationally recognized community organizations. Bishop Poole is honored to raise awareness and provide support to these organizations, such as Susan G. Komen and American Red Cross, which has given New Hope International an opportunity to touch their community in a way that could not otherwise be achieved.
While residing in Warner Robins, GA with his wife and three children, Bishop Jeff Poole continues to challenge people of all walks of life to pursue their destiny, live life on purpose and achieve all that God has ordained for them!
