Campolo Scholars Fellowship with Rev. Amy Banka
November 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Rev. Amy Banka meets with the Campolo scholars for their weekly fellowship meeting.
An ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, having graduated from Palmer Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree, Reverend Amy Banka was invited to join the Hopewell Church staff in June 2014, as the Pastor of Young Adults and Leadership Development. She became Associate Pastor in 2016, and Lead Pastor in June 2018.
Not having grown up in the Church, Amy came to faith in Jesus Christ as a young adult. Upon hearing the gospel and feeling the presence of Christ in her heart and life, she sought a church home where she could learn and grow as a Christian. She stumbled into Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church in Philadelphia, where the pastor had been praying for God to send her young people to mentor. There she learned about God’s amazing heart for the broken and about Christ’s willingness and power to save, heal, and transform. A few years later, Pastor Amy heard God call her to pastoral ministry.
Amy is married to Mike, and they have two beautiful daughters, Grace and Emily. Amy enjoys drinking coffee, reading, creative writing, playing board games, and visiting Longwood Gardens (red roses, jasmine, and lilacs smell the best!).
