Dan Hansens | Director of Operations

Dan grew up in a loving home in the small town of Midland, MI.  After graduating high school, Dan attended Hope College in Holland, MI earning degrees in Computer Science and Business Management.  The allure of the big city drew Dan to Chicago, working as a computer programmer and project manager.  

After a few years in Chicago a friend invited Dan to take Alpha Course at Park Community Church.  Dan was very skeptical of Christianity, but reluctantly started to explore faith.  Alpha served as the perfect way for Dan to encounter the Gospel, providing answers to intellectual questions and a safe place to explore doubts and challenge Christian beliefs.  After a lot of time and energy, Dan came to faith in the summer of 2011.  

Shortly after coming to faith Dan felt called to serve in the Church. He continued his full time job, enrolled in seminary, and continued to volunteer in the Church.  In the fall of 2016 Dan started the residency program at Park Community Church.  Dan joined Renewal in January of 2017 as a part time employee.  He graduated with a Master of Arts in Theological Studies in May of 2017 and came on full time at Renewal as the Director of Operations in June of 2017.

Dan loves the community at Renewal. He has a heart for evangelism and hopes to continue to help grow the church.
