Meet the Team

 

Nevin and Joann Nisly

Director/Counselor

Nevin and Joann were both teachers for many years and began their lives together in 2008. After their marriage, they felt God's nudging toward dedicating their efforts to walking alongside others to understand, encourage, and care for them. After making South-central Kansas their home in 2009, they started HOPE Ministries of Kansas. 
They are excited about continuing the vision of assisting singles, married people, and churches as they pursue personal healing and also provide a safe environment for others to enjoy hope and life with a very personal Jesus.

Sheri Nisly

Secretary

Sheri has lived all her life here in the central plains of Kansas. In the fall of 2019, Sheri joined the team as secretary for HOPE Ministries. As well as secretary, she also works part time at a local store and teaches piano lessons. Sheri enjoys reading books, playing piano, singing, hanging out with friends, and would love to travel to Europe someday.

Julian Nisly

Counselor

Julian and Bertha attend Center Amish Mennonite Church where Julian serves as an ordained pastor. Julian works for Golden Rule Property Management doing maintenance work. In 2016, he began counseling part time at HOPE Ministries. Julian and Bertha enjoy spending time together as a family whether it's an evening at home, enjoying nature or exploring cities. Julian's came for counseling at HOPE in 2010 and began serving on the board shortly after their time there. The tools and healing they received gave them a vision for the work of HOPE Ministries.

Tracia Ropp

Counselor

A northern girl at heart, Tracia grew up in Minnesota and spent five years working with Northern Youth Programs in Ontario. In July 2018, she followed God's call to the plains of Kansas. Tracia's passion for helping single ladies discover and live out of the heart God created for them comes out of her own on-going journey of learning to trust Jesus with the vulnerable places and allowing Him to redeem and write her story.
