  • mATT hANTZ, SENIOR PASTOR

    Matt Hantz joined Blessed Hope in March of 2014.  He is a graduate of Augustana College , Western Illinois University,  and Liberty Theological Seminary.  He had spent the past 13 years working as an elementary school counselor before following God’s call into full time ministry.  Matt and his wife Carrie have three children, two living at home and one who is a teacher in Las Vegas.  It is absolutely ridiculous how much Matt loves being a pastor.  He is also pretty fond of drinking coffee, smoking a good cigar and cheering for the Cubs.
