Pam loves getting to know people and hearing their unique stories!


She started as a volunteer in Emergency Assistance in 2012 as well as the Christmas store and Mobile Markets over the years and has grown to love the mission of Hope Center, its ministries, and the people it serves.


She is  passionate about homeschooling, healthy cooking, loving her family, and discipling her children.  She enjoys spending time on her front porch with a good cup of coffee, her current Bible study, and a friend.


She hopes to someday stand before her God and say, as Jesus did in John 17:4, I have glorified You on earth by completing the work You gave me to do.

Caleb Keene

Director of NextGen Ministries

Contact Caleb with questions regarding the NextGen Ministries located at the Hope Center and with questions regarding YoMAMA, local youth groups, and student support. 


Caleb grew up in Plain City, but currently lives on the campus of The Ohio State University. 


Caleb is passionate about serving and supporting the students of the greater Union County area by building relationships with them, creating opportunities for them, and pointing them to Jesus. 


Caleb enjoys spending his time outside and with friends or family, he’s almost always up to something. During the warmer months he can often be found by a campfire, on the porch or in a hammock. If it’s too cold to be outside, he can probably be found in a coffee shop or local restaurant. If it’s above 50 degrees outside, his car windows are probably down.
