Liana and I planted Discover Hope International Church in the fall of 2000, since then the church as grown in strength and numbers. My vision is to disciple leaders for the expansion of the church.

Sarah Brant

Associate Pastor

Hi everyone! I’m Pastor Sarah Brant! I’m a lover of Jesus, wife to Pastor Aaron Brant, blessed mommy to the 4 sweetest boys ever and a licensed minister of the Gospel with a passion and excitement to see all people come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ!

During my time in ministry at Discover Hope, I’ve been blessed to minister in many areas of leadership, serving in youth ministry, children’s ministry, Sunday school ministry, nursery, worship ministry, as well teaching and preaching. I truly feel the most alive in ministry when I am doing personal ministry, counseling and pouring into people’s lives one on one. In my heart, I am best described as an encourager, optimist, cheerleader and a shepherd who cares deeply for people and desires to see all people walk victoriously in the freedom that is theirs in Christ! Give me a phone call or drop me an email today if you have any questions or would like to chat! God bless you!
