Noel grew up in Houston  He was blessed to attend church from an early age and came to know the Lord during 3rd grade.  He moved to Chicago for college where he quickly acquired a new appreciation for cold, snow, and ice.  While in Chicago, Noel met his wife Jennifer at church.  They have two children, Ella and Luke.  The family has attended Hope since moving to Princeton, New Jersey in 2012.  

Noel is a graduate of Northwestern University and received his MBA from The Wharton School.  Professionally, Noel works in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry.  When he isn’t anguishing over the rise and fall of the Houston Astros, you will find him rushing from one kids’ activity to the next, spending time with his Fellowship Group, looking for a good milkshake, and even tolerating a run from time-to-time.
