PASTORAL STAFF

HENRY HANSEN

Senior Pastor
Email: hhansen@bidwellpres.org

ABOUT HENRY HANSEN

In 2016, Henry and his family moved to Chico from the Bay Area, where Henry had served as a pastor for nine years. Although Henry grew up in Petaluma, CA, his education pulled him eastward across the country, first to Arizona for his bachelor’s degree and then to New Jersey for his master’s degree. Henry finally returned to California to earn his Doctorate of Ministry at Fuller Seminary. One of Henry’s joys in Christ is that believers have the incredible privilege of being lifelong learners from the one true teacher – Jesus Christ.

Henry and his wife, Jenna, have three young children: Hartley, Hayden, and Madeline. In addition to his passions for Jesus and his family, Henry loves coffee, ice cream, running, reading, playing guitar, and keeping up with the latest releases at the movies.

SHANNON COON

Assoc. Pastor of Discipleship and Care

ABOUT SHANNON COON

Shannon grew up in Chicago and came to BPC after graduating from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2011. Prior to seminary, Shannon had two previous careers and lived in New York City and Chicago. BPC has been her first full-time ministry experience and she loves being a pastor, preacher, teacher, and friend to the congregation.

Shannon’s two favorite people in the world are her husband, Chris, who is a pastor in the Bay Area, and her son, Rylan, who is in high school. She loves outdoor activities such as hiking and kayaking, as well as indoor activities like watching movies, reading and making jewelry. Her passion is helping people go deeper in their walk with Christ and continuing to learn about God while on the journey of life.
