Kjel Hanson joins the staff of St. Philip as Minister of Music in July

We are pleased to announce that we have hired Kjel Hanson as our new Minister of Music. His first Sunday with us will be July 3, 2016.

Kjel has over 15 years of experience working in Music Ministry. Prior to joining the team at St. Philip in July 2016, he worked in other churches in Illinois and Iowa. Within those capacities, he has had the opportunity to work with various age groups of volunteer and professional musicians. He feels that the Lord has called him to the ministry utilizing his musical abilities.

In addition to working at churches, Kjel also has taught music in a Catholic school and shared his abilities in performing with and giving insight to musical programming in community musical and choral groups.

He is excited about starting his ministry at St. Philip and is looking forward to meeting those involved with the musical groups and other members of St. Philip.

Kjel resides in Rolling Meadows with his wife LorieAnn and their Coonhound Beagle mix dog, Scout. In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his wife and six stepchildren doing various activities.
