Church Leaders

Gary Paladin and

wife Donna


Lead Pastor

Neil and Bernadette have been part of the Hosanna family since 2006. In that time they have served in many capacities. From coordinating local outreach, to mission fund raising, to going on short term mission trips and also leading Growth Groups.

Neil is driven by a desire to do whatever is necessary to see people grow to their full potential in God. Whether through one on one discipleship or being available to encourage in a crisis, Neil makes other people his priority.

The O’Donnell’s reside in Troy Hill. They have six adult children and 12 grandchildren.

​​Pastor Gary and Donna were raised up in ministry at Word and Worship Church in North   Braddock, PA where Gary became Assistant Pastor in 1989.  One year later the eldership commissioned Gary and Donna to be the first church plant of WWC.   In spring of 1990 Hosanna Church was launched, meeting at Mellwood Hall in Ross Township.  Sensing God’s direction to be on the cusp of the city, Hosanna moved into its present location in the Brighton Heights section of Pittsburgh in December 1997.

Reaching people with the hope of Jesus Christ is the heart beat of Pastor Gary’s ministry.  Hosanna continues to be a place where lives are truly and literally transformed by Jesus.  Gary has also been used extensively in foreign missions having done over 25 short term trips with a central focus upon Liberia, West Africa where Gary has traveled 10 times.  Donna has a heart that beats for kids ministry which she has been a part of for over 25 years along with discipleship of younger women in the church family. 

Pastor and Donna have six grown children, five grandchildren and reside in Bellevue.
