Pastors

Steve Chamberlain - Lead Pastor

steve@hawleyalliance.org
Responsibilities
Steve is the lead Pastor at Hawley Alliance Church. He loves leading those who walk through the doors to cross the line of faith by saying “yes” to trusting Jesus. He then likes to take those that cross that line and create teams to outreach to others who have yet to be introduced to Jesus. In order to equip these teams and those who have trusted Jesus, Steve teaches Network classes. It is through these classes people discover their spiritual gifts and find their fit to serve by using their gifts and talents.


Steve was born and raised in Minnesota. He has been with Hawley Alliance Church since 2007, and in that time has enjoyed working and building a team with his staff. At HAC God has brought together a congregation with a vibrant desire to outreach to people who have not yet trusted in Jesus.

Family
Steve and his wife, Dawn, live in Hawley. They raised three children, who have all since left the nest and gone on to start families of their own. While the kids are all grown up, Steve and Dawn enjoy spending time with their eight grandchildren. 


Hobbies
Steve has a favorite hobby for every season: motorcycling, 4-wheeling, sailing, and skiing. His hobbies not only lead to adventure in the great outdoors but serve as an opportunity for him to share God’s message whether it be on a sailing trip or a motorcycle ride with a group of guys. He also enjoys a game of basketball and designing and creating games that bring a group together.


Education

KYLE CHRISTOPHERSON – ASSOCIATE PASTOR

kyle@hawleyalliance.org

Responsibilities 
Kyle has taken on both an administrative and pastoral role at HAC as of August 2017. He is responsible for overseeing the technical side of things, as well as connecting people and getting them plugged into the church. He teaches Sunday School Classes throughout the year and preaches from time to time. While Kyle enjoys teaching the word of God, he loves to witness those “Aw ha” moments in people; when the spark of knowledge grows from knowing about Jesus to being filled with the Holy Spirit. It is his goal to introduce as many people as he can to Jesus.
Family
Kyle and Kate exchanged their vows on New Year’s Eve of 2011. They have three boys: Josiah, Samuel and Micah. Kyle looks forward to coming home from work and walking into giant hugs and hearing about his family’s day. He is enjoying watching his boys grow and experience things. There’s a good chance that if you see Kyle out mowing his lawn, Josiah and Samuel are right on his heels with their matching lawn mowers.
Hobbies
Having grown up in the Perham area in the land of 10,000 lakes, Kyle enjoys fishing and hunting. He also enjoys reading, trying new foods, and time with his family.
