Our Team

Pastors & Staff

Steve Chamberlain

Lead Pastor

Steve is the lead Pastor at Hawley Alliance Church. He loves leading those who walk through the doors to cross the line of faith by saying “yes” to trusting Jesus. He then likes to take those that cross that line and create teams to outreach to others who have yet to be introduced to Jesus. In order to equip these teams and those who have trusted Jesus, Steve teaches Network classes. It is through these classes people discover their spiritual gifts and find their fit to serve by using their gifts and talents. Steve was born and raised in Minnesota. He has been with Hawley Alliance Church since 2007, and in that time has enjoyed working and building a team with his staff.

Kyle Christopherson

Associate Pastor

Kyle has taken on both an administrative and pastoral role at HAC as of August 2017. He is responsible for overseeing the technical side of things, as well as connecting people and getting them plugged into the life of the church. He teaches Sunday School Classes throughout the year and preaches from time to time. While Kyle enjoys teaching the word of God, he loves to witness those “Aha” moments in people; when the spark of knowledge grows from knowing about Jesus to living for him, experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit. It is his goal to introduce as many people as he can to Jesus.

Spencer Rekedal

Youth Pastor

Spencer is responsible for Next Gen ministries! He leads Wednesday night youth group for junior and senior high. He is passionate about sharing the love of Jesus Christ with each and every student. His goals are to empower students to live out the great commission that is found in Mathew 28:19-20. The job of being the Youth Pastor is to equip students to become new leaders and to know God by living out Deuteronomy 6. On Wednesday nights, students will GATHER together… GROW by engaging with scripture and in small groups… and GO by sharing our testimonies of what God has done in our lives with all those we meet. Spencer desires for students and leaders to grow in their relationship with Jesus and with others. Spencer has been on staff at Hawley Alliance since 2021.
