Pastors and Staff

Pastors

Steve Chamberlain - Lead Pastor

steve@hawleyalliance.org
Responsibilities
Steve has been lead pastor at Hawley Alliance Church since April 1, 2007 (no joke!). His favorite part of his role is using God’s Word to help people step across the line of faith in Jesus and to help followers of Jesus to reach out to share the message of Jesus. Two of his favorite topics to teach about are spiritual gifts and the Biblical account of the flood.  Steve’s two favorite traits of our church are that the people are real and that there’s a desire to seek God’s truth.

Family
Steve has been married to his wonderful wife Dawn for 37 years. They have three kids, Chrystal, Dan and Alayna, who are all married and who have produced a crop of the seven best grandchildren in the world.

Hobbies
When Steve is not working at the church you will find him busy in a number of other activities. He is a sports enthusiast and loves to watch professional sports. He stays active with skiing, kayaking, motorcycling and (ESPECIALLY!) sailing. He keeps his mind active by reading and learning about the Civil War.

Education
B.A., Church Administration, Bob Jones University

 

Kyle Christopherson – Associate Pastor

kyle@hawleyalliance.org

Responsibilities

Kyle has taken on both an administrative and pastoral role at HAC as of August 20th 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, mostly nonfiction, and time with his family.
