Regarding LOGAN Hope

I have been so blessed by my Heavenly Father. I enjoy volunteering at LOGAN Hope in the after-school program and tutoring several students. It is very important to use my God given time, talents, and treasures to serve Him. I serve on the board of LOGAN Hope because the students hear the gospel of Jesus Christ every day while also receiving an excellent education in a safe environment. The school shines the light of Jesus Christ in an impoverished, violent section of Philadelphia. “And no one can ever lay any other real foundation than that one we already have—Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 3:11 (Living Bible)

Paul Bradshaw, Vice President

Paul has been a member of the Board of Directors since 2016 and currently serves as the Vice-President. Paul is an attorney with more than forty years of experience in law, working for such firms as Sunesys, LLC, RCN Corporation and Public Service Enterprise. His most recent role is an Assistant County Solicitor for Berks County, Pennsylvania. 

Paul received his B.A from Wheaton College and his J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. He also earned his LL.M (Masters of Laws) in Federal Taxation from the University of Alabama Law School. 

Over the years, Paul has been an active supporter of several Christian ministries such as Fellowship for the Performing Arts and was a Trustee at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. Paul and his wife, Carol, live in Lansdale and worship at St. Paul's Reformed Episcopal Church in Oreland, PA. Together they have six children and six grandchildren.

Regarding LOGAN Hope

I am particularly interested in ensuring quality Christian education is made available to children who would not ordinarily have the wherewithal to attend school outside the public school system, both to allow them to come to know Jesus as Lord and to encourage them to obtain the skills necessary to lead a productive Christian spiritual life. 

Shin Eunice Lin, Secretary

Shin is a teacher at Hunting Park Christian Academy since 2000. Prior to this she was a teacher at LOGAN Hope from 2001-2005. 

Originally from Queens, NY, Shin relocated to Philadelphia to attend Westminster Seminary where she earned a masters in Urban Missions. Shin realized God was leading her to a particular church in Hunting Park doing urban ministry firsthand, starting schools and churches in the city. LOGAN Hope was one of the ministries where she cut her teeth in Philadelphia urban ministry while a seminary student.

Shin met her husband Matt while attending seminary. As a deacon and pastor’s wife at One Hope Community Church, Shin and her family are involved in almost every ministry of the church, from the weekly food pantry, child and youth ministry, to music and worship. They live in Logan with their three children.

Regarding LOGAN Hope

While attending a small church in Hunting Park, I met the founders of LOGAN Hope, Anita and Ken MacBain. That relationship was instrumental in keeping me in Philadelphia and opening my purview to Christian education as a transformative tool for any child, their family, and the immediate community. As the only board member who has worked at LOGAN Hope, my unique perspective continues to shape this school that I love.

Kendy Lieu

Kendy has worked for vaccine manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry for over 15 years. Today he is an Environmental Monitoring Quality Assurance Specialist. His road to this path started in the Logan neighborhood of Philadelphia, where his parents owned a small business. 

After earning a B.S. in Biology from Penn State University, Kendy went to work for Merck as a Bio-technician manufacturing Varicella (chicken pox) vaccines. 

Kendy attends Grace Covenant Church Mainline where he met his wife, Krystal. They have been married since 2018 and are the parents of two girls. Kendy serves as a youth group teacher and is a member of the Missions and Outreach committee at GCC-ML.

Regarding LOGAN Hope

In 2016, I volunteered for a one-week mission trip with my church to assist LOGAN Hope with their summer day camp.  Our team wanted to walk in and provide all the love we could muster and share the Love of Jesus to broken and hardened children in a rough neighborhood. Instead, we met students already softened and filled with love and care well before we got there. Their behavior, respect, and pure joy filled and blessed me more. It was a result of the passion for Jesus and work of the founders, teachers, camp counselors and staff members at LOGAN Hope, who poured out all they could to these students of the neighborhood. I was compelled to continue supporting LOGAN Hope anyway I could, and eventually joined the board of directors to serve the school in 2017.

Denise Simone

Before retiring in 2021, Denise worked as a Realtor, helping seniors downsize from their lifelong homes. Prior to this, Denise worked in medical sales for 31 years at Cardinal Health, a Fortune 500 company specializing in the manufacture and distribution of medical supplies.

After graduating from Grand View Hospital School of Nursing, Denise began her career as an operating room nurse at Yale-New Haven Hospital. She then became the Director of Nursing at the Temple Surgical Center. To further her education, Denise earned her BS in Healthcare Administration from Quinnipiac University.

Denise is active in a variety of ministries at St. John’s Anglican Church. She resides in Warrington, PA with her husband Michael, and enjoys visits to her grandson in Brooklyn, NY.

Regarding LOGAN Hope

After accompanying Deb Hedrick (Board President) on several LOGAN Hope projects: Race for Education, Blessing of Hope, 8th grade graduation and Christmas season events, I came to appreciate the special role LOGAN Hope School has in the lives of the staff, students, and families in the Logan section of Philadelphia. Inspired, I joined the LOGAN Hope board in May 2022.

Gregory Schaller, PhD

Greg is the President of the John Jay Institute, which offers a post-baccalaureate fellowship program for young men and women to prepare principled Christian leaders for public service. Greg administers programs, leads most of the academic seminars, and fundraises.

Greg is a Fellow at the Centennial Institute, CCU’s public policy think-tank. Many of CCU’s Political Science graduates work in the Colorado state legislature, the U.S. House and Senate, the Heritage Foundation, Focus on the Family, AEI and more. Greg has a BA in Politics and History from Eastern University, an MA in Political Science from Villanova. 

Greg and his wife Rachel attend St. John’s Anglican Church. They are parents of two adult daughters.

Regarding LOGAN Hope

I joined the board of the LOGAN Hope school in 2022 after learning about the school in 2017.  Each semester, I bring the John Jay Fellows to the school for a day of service: participating in the school’s chapel, helping with yard work, organizing the library and other projects.  I love Christian education at all levels, and the pursuit of academic excellence, which are hallmarks of LOGAN Hope.

Reverend Harold R. Jolley, DMin

Dr. Jolley currently serves as Pastor of the Second Macedonia Baptist Church, in the Logan section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His leadership at Second Macedonia has led to growth in the areas of spiritual development, congregational connection, finances, administration, and domestic missions.

Prior to Second Macedonia, Dr. Jolley served as Pastor at the Riverview Missionary Baptist Church in Kingston, NY, and has worked for various not-for-profit agencies as a youth advocate.  His areas of concentration were designing and implementing academic and employment programs to develop and prepare youth to compete in today’s workforce. Dr. Jolley continues his efforts in aiding as an advocate for seniors and youth by serving on the boards of the Community House (Philadelphia) a senior living facility, and LOGAN Hope Christian School.

Dr. Jolley graduated from The Lincoln University, PA, with an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice, as well as a Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry from the Theological School of Drew University, New Jersey. Dr. Jolley lives in New Jersey with his wife Heather and their two daughters.

Regarding LOGAN Hope

Second Macedonia is a neighbor to Logan Hope and during my tenure, my goal has been to build a working relationship between both institutions as they serve the Logan Community. I served on the LOGAN Hope Board for two years prior to taking a sabbatical to further my academic pursuit. I returned to the board in 2023. I believe in the mission and academic efforts of LOGAN Hope as they advance as a conduit to shape spiritual development and excel as a community-based teaching model.

Courtney’s education began at a school like LOGAN Hope, Spruce Hill (now City School) in West Philadelphia, where she attended 9 years. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, studying English and German Literature. After serving on InterVarsity staff for 7 years, she worked with Global Partners for Development in Bangladesh for 3 years, and as a Director of Communications for 5 years at seeJesus.

Courtney attends Covenant Presbyterian Church, and lives north of Doylestown with her husband, Ian, and three daughters who are spreading their wings, readying to leave the nest.

Regarding LOGAN Hope

LOGAN Hope echoes all that I loved about my Spruce Hill years: the truly diverse community of students, soaked in transformative Christian education, maximizing all the resources available. Such a fertile ground for rich learning. I joined the board in June 2023, because I love the edges of God’s kingdom growing. That’s where all the joy is!
