About Us


For me, my Christian journey has been about living a life that is most pleasing to the Lord and helping others to do the same by walking in obedience to Christ.  

From his humble beginnings in his basement, New Hope has now become a thriving body of believers with a heart for God and God’s kingdom work.  Bishop Wellington is passionate about evangelism.  He is a gifted teacher, and preacher in the Word of God.  He ministers under the anointing in the areas of prophecy, healing, and deliverance.  He is highly focused on developing men and women for ministry and entrepreneurship.  He strongly believes that every believer should strive to become spiritually mature for the work of the ministry.  He and his wife together conduct various biblical training classes, marriage seminars, leadership conferences, and other meetings to build the Body of Christ.

Bishop Wellington has been married to his beloved wife and partner Malynda for over 40 years.  They have two great children Quiana, and Anthony who work hard in ministry with them.  He is the proud granddad of four Joseph, Brooklynn, Anthony, III and Micah.


For me, my Christian journey has been about living a life that is impactful, encouraging, and inspiring to others so that I can demonstrate the goodness and love of God that has been imparted to me.
