REV. MICHAEL HANSEN

Senior Pastor / Head of Staff

Michael grew up in Williamsburg, Virginia. His early ministry was with university students working as a Hall Director and Academic Advisor. He met his wife Maggie in graduate school where they both studied Christian Spiritual Formation and Leadership. Their first years of marriage were spent in Colorado before Michael responded to the call to pursue pastoral ministry. After graduation from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2018, Michael served as an Assistant Pastor for Discipleship at First & Calvary Presbyterian Church in Springfield, MO. Michael and Maggie have three children, Ellie, Jude, and Leah (born in December 2020!). Besides spending time with Maggie and the kids, Michael enjoys a good cup of coffee, running, and disc golf.
