Chaplain Steve Hanson

Director of Dirt Sports Ministries

I became a volunteer chaplain with Racers For Christ in 2004 and began the off-road ministry segment the following year, covering professional off-road competitions in rock sports.  Desert racing was added in 2007 and short-course off-road events became part of our season calendar in 2008.  Leading the dirt sports portion of RFC developed into full-time service as the Southwest regional director in 2009, and I transitioned to the position of RFC’s Dirt Sports Ministry director in 2012.

My chaplain duties have taken me to thousands of motorsport events in the past 20 years — desert racing, short-course off-road, rock crawling, sand drags, motorcycle, and drag racing.  I love it all!

As a missionary chaplain (like our regional directors, I raise my own support)  to the dirt sports community, I’m blessed to attend hundreds of events and demonstrate the love of Jesus to thousands of people because of generous donations to this segment of RFC’s ministry.  The generosity of our supporters enables me to bless others by spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to the teams and fans of dirt sports racing.

My wife Danielle and I married in November 2009; a year later, we started our family with identical twin boys Elijah & Isaiah.  Toward the end of the racing season in 2011, our son Jeremiah was born to complete #TeamHANSON.  Our family resides in Mission Viejo, California.
