Chris Hansler

Pacific Region Executive Director

Chris Hansler serves as the Regional Executive Director for the Pacific Region. He has diverse pastoral and other leadership experience, having served as a youth leader and church planting pastor. Chris founded and grew the Discover Church Planting Network as well as the Discover Ministry School, which now has several functioning sites within Pacific Region and is beginning to reach beyond the region. He (and his late wife, Lisa, who passed away in 2022) has three grown children: Robert, Johnathan, and Angela. In his spare time Chris enjoys golfing, fly-fishing, hiking and camping, and playing the guitar.

Chris and Pacific Region are focused on helping churches make strong disciples who become great leaders that will reach the next generation with the love of Jesus. He is confident that the churches in the region have within them the Spirit-borne seeds of life that can transform communities all over Pacific Region and beyond.
