  • Ron Hanson

    Lead minister

    Most guys get a sports car for their mid-life crisis; Ron got a call to ministry. After a tour of duty in the U.S. Army and many years in bank processing, he and his family moved to Rochester, Minnesota, to attend Minnesota Bible College. He ministered in Clarksville, Iowa, and Parkersburg, Indiana, before being called to serve with and alongside the congregation at New Brighton Christian Church in August of 2000.

    Ron has been married to the love of his life, Judy, since May of 1985. They have three children: Bradley, John, and Rebekah; one granddaughter, Emilie, and one grandson, Henry Ronald.
