John Hanna is New Jersey State Capitol Minister with Ministry to State, a ministry to those serving in government. Ministry to State is an evangelistic gospel outreach to government, which also exhorts those who profess faith in the Lord to be faithful to him in their calling within government. It also serves a voice of witness and conscience to government. In addition, Ministry to State aims to be a bridge between the government and the Church of our Lord in New Jersey.
John is a graduate of Binghamton University (B.A., Pol. Sci.), The American University Washington College of Law (J.D.), and Westminster Theological Seminary (M. Div.). Prior to going into full-time ministry, John practiced law for over a decade. He has served as Associate Pastor of All Souls Community Church in Suffern, NY, and as Pastor of Restore Fellowship in Oakland, NJ. He and his wife, Nevine, have five children.
John believes that the opportunity to serve with Ministry to State in New Jersey brings together his education, experience, and interests. His hope is that in and through Ministry to State, the powerful, gracious, redeeming, dying, and rising, truth and love of God through Jesus Christ in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit would be at work in and among the people in government in New Jersey.
