Get to know Hans:

People are surprised that I’m one belt short of a black-belt. I did Tae-kwon-do during college.

King David. He was a man after God’s own heart. He messed up a lot, was super passionate, yet was completely humble. I’d like to hang out with him and hear about his stories and his heart for God.

A-Team. I love the concept of a team of misfits who face problems and work together to come up with a solution and a plan comes together.

I would make community service be a requirement to renew your driver’s license. Maybe this would make people a bit kinder.

Seeing Danelle and my kids happy when we’re all together. And of course, the dogs. When we’re all together and truly enjoying our time together, this makes me the happiest. And times when I’m out hunting or dog training and when I take the moment to reflect how great God is. That makes me pretty happy.

All in. In everything, be all in. Whether it’s work, play, worship, relationships, that’s me. Be all in.
