Kenneth Hanson Jr.

Kenneth Hanson Jr. is a pastor, chaplain, and educator. Pastor Ken became a licensed minister with the Church of God denomination in Cleveland, Tennessee, in 2018 and later became an ordained minister in 2019. In January of 2022, he became the lead pastor of Word of Life International Church of God.

By this, he believes we will live authentic lives as children of God despite the changing world around us while still being compassionate and practical to those in need.

He desires to see people, multi-generational and multi-cultural, come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, experience the redemptive and sustaining Grace of God, and discover their gifts and unique abilities to become more in Christ.
