Join us for brunch with Matt and Andrea Hopster!
You may already know the Hopsters from the years they worked right here on the Anaheim District before moving to Ecuador.
We invite you to come find out how God is moving in Ecuador.
Brunch will be served.
Missionary Bios: Andréa Hopster was born into a military family, moving all over the United States, until her father accepted a call into ministry. Through these experiences, she grew to have a passion for learning about new cultures. God began to stir within her a call to missions, which led her to Mount Vernon Nazarene University. While at MVNU, Andréa studied abroad in both Campinas, Brazil and San Jose, Costa Rica. Andréa graduated with a degree in Intercultural Studies and Spanish and continued her educational journey to Biola University where she earned her M.A. in Linguistics & Biblical Languages. She also happened to meet a guy working at a coffee shop! Matthew Hopster was born in Las Vegas and felt a sense of God calling him to deepen his faith at a young age. While attending a Christ in Youth Camp, he prayed to receive salvation. Matt enjoys connecting with people, and God is using that passion in his call and ministry. He graduated from Hope International University with a degree in Youth and Family Ministries. When he met the girl at the coffee shop, he heard about the Church of the Nazarene, and was eventually ordained as a pastor! God continues to use Andréa and Matt’s passion for culture and people, allowing for amazing opportunities to lead people to Christ and encourage discipleship and holiness. Andréa has served in both local and district NMI and Matt served as a youth pastor at Cerritos Nazarene and in district NYI. They currently serve on the North Andean Field in Quito, Ecuador!
