Rev. Dr. Mark Hannemann
After 30 years in ministry, Pastor Mark’s love for preaching and teaching God’s Word is still going strong. “The Word of God is the most powerful thing in the universe,” he said. “God spoke and everything came into being. The divine Word, Jesus, became flesh and lived among us. Jesus spoke from the cross, ‘It is finished,’ and our salvation was accomplished. I love sharing the Word and seeing what it does in the lives of God’s people.” Before coming to Divine Shepherd in 2008, Pastor Mark most recently served as executive director of Windgate Christian Counseling in Ellisville, Mo., (2005-08) and as senior pastor of Faith Lutheran Church in Lincoln (1994-2005). He grew up in York, NE, and married his high school sweetheart, Sandy. They have four children and ten grandchildren. Pastor Mark is president of GracePoint Institute for Relational Health (relationalhealth.org), a Christian counseling ministry with offices in Omaha and Lincoln. He likes spending time with his grandchildren, working outdoors, watching movies, having Teddy take him for a walk and traveling with Sandy.
