Chris Hansen grew up on a farm in Minnesota and gave his life to Christ at a very early age. He met his wife, Alysha, in college whey they both attended Biola University. Chris graduated Biola as a Music in Worship major and was blessed to be able to study both music and theology and gain a deep appreciation for worshiping the Lord by offering ourselves as living sacrifices for Him. After Chris and Alysha got married, they moved to Massachusetts, and have been living on the North Shore for a little over a decade. The Hansens now have two precious girls, and are thankful to be part of the Cornerstone family and serve the Lord through the church.
Max and his wife, Coley, are both native New Englanders raised in Georgetown, Massachusetts. After high school, Max attended Boston College, where he was convicted of his sin and ultimately led to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through a parachurch ministry on campus. After completing graduate school, Max and his wife settled back on the North Shore and he now works as a physician assistant. The Manganos have two boys and are thankful for the faithful Cornerstone Church family the Lord has provided and Max considers it his greatest privilege to serve as an elder at Cornerstone.
