May 20: Drew's First Sunday!

Photo of Drew HansonFirst Presbyterian Church Quincy is very excited to annouce that we have called a new installed pastor, Drew Hanson. Drew's first official Sunday is May 20, 2018. Please come join us in celebrating this important time in our church's history!

Drew Hanson is from San Diego and has always lived in Southern California. As a product of this environment, Drew loves the ocean and grew up surfing, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, and SCUBA diving. A lifelong Presbyterian, Drew experienced a deep call to discipleship while a high school student in the youth group at Fletcher Hills Presbyterian Church. He followed his passion for marine biology while studying at Occidental College in Los Angeles. While there, he heard the Lord call him into ministry, which led him to attend Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena shortly after graduating from college. For the last five years, Drew has worked at Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church, overseeing a wide scope of ministries, from children’s and youth ministries to worship and adult discipleship. Drew is passionate about studying, preaching, and teaching God’s Word. He’s also a bit of a sports fan and can lose himself in a conversation over just about any sport, from football to rugby to curling.

Drew and his wife, Cassie, met at Occidental College. Cassie is from the San Francisco Bay Area. After college, they dated long-distance, as Cassie began her career in economic consulting in Boston. Shortly after she moved back to Los Angeles, they got engaged and were married in July 2016. While Los Angeles has been good to them both, Cassie is excited to return to the Boston area, both to escape the infamous LA traffic and enjoy distinct seasons. Yes, the Hansons know what the weather’s like in Massachusetts, and strangely, they’re excited for it!

Drew and Cassie are both, most importantly, thrilled to meet the First Presby family and are looking forward to the prospect of what God has for this next chapter in their lives and the life of First Presbyterian Church, Quincy!
