Axis Leadership Team

Hannah Risner
Axis Leadership Team

My name is Hannah Risner and I am a mother to four great kids. I serve as a Pastor at Axis Church and a mentor. I have a heart for women's ministries and loving the underdog through their walk with Christ. My favorite Bible verse is all of Isaiah 54 because I love God's promise for forgiveness and renewal to all who seek Him. "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed,  yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed". 

Jay Reed
Axis Leadership Team

I'm Pastor Jay and I am apart of the co-pastoring team at our Axis Church. In connection with Axis Church, I lead our Men's Ministry. It's a place where men can be men. My passion is for men to become and be what God has called us to be, and that is Godly leaders in our homes and work. My wife Vicki and I have been serving in the church for over seven years now.
