Mark Hansche- Pastor

Mark is from East Texas, originally, but has been in the Springfield area since 2001.  Mark is a musician, an avid outdoorsman, and perhaps the worlds foremost authority on the Andy Griffith Show! Mark has been pastoring since 2004, which is a second career for Mark after spending many years in ancillary health care working with home health and hospice companies. He and Susan have been married since 2008 and have two sons, Gabe 17 and Spencer 26.

Susan Hansche- Next Generations Director

Susan leads our Next Generation ministry here at DRC. She uses her passion and her many years of experience as a public school teacher to create fun, out of the box experiences for our kids!
