ABOUT HENRY HANSEN
In 2016, Henry and his family moved to Chico from the Bay Area, where Henry 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 of Divinity at Princeton Seminary. Henry finally returned to California to earn his doctorate at Fuller. One of Henry’s joys in ministry is seeing how people make connections between their faith, gifting, and their service to God. He likes to witness how we receive the fullness of life when we serve in the manner in which Christ made us.
Henry and his wife, Jenna, have three young children: Hartley, Hayden, and Madeline. In addition to his passion for Christ and ministry, Henry loves the Giants, Red Sox, 49ers and Warriors, Golf, Guitar and music, films, everything that is written by Tim Keller, several books by NT Wright, and his favorite biography is The Unfinished Life of JFK. While he was in seminary he took film classes in New York, and received training and performed in the theater, which he also studied in college along with Communications.
