Jesus spoke to them, saying…
“All authority in heaven and on the earth has been given to Me. Therefore having gone, disciple all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things, whatever I commanded you. And behold, I am with you all the days, until the completion of the age.” (emphasis added)
– Matthew 28:19-20, The Berean Literal Bible

He served in law enforcement for nearly 28 years before retiring to step into the ministry full-time.

A primary goal of each Every Man Arizona event is to challenge Christian men to have a deeper walk with Jesus.
Jacks interest in Men‘s Ministry began years ago after attending one of the first Promise Keepers conferences and studying under Ed Cole‘s Men‘s Ministry. This influence caused him to to re–focus his life from a corporate sales/marketing career to “fathering” his three sons and one daughter. Currently one son is CEO/Founder of Hope Ventures, another is a hospice minister, the youngest is a real estate investor. Originally, as “father and son”, they are lifelong best friends and “fishing buddies.” He also adopted a baby daughter during his corporate management days and now she is a very successful banker here in Prescott.
In 2003, Jack moved from California to Prescott and continued his real estate business working as an Associate Broker with West USA Realty. He has been honored to receive three prestigious awards: Circle of Excellence, President’s Circle Award, and the NAR Emeritus Award. He also maintains his California Brokers License.
In recent years, Jack has devoted more time to his wife of 58 years, children, community and church ministry. He has served as deacon and elder at his local church and, also, as a member of the County Senior Peer Program. He is also one of the founding members of Every Man Arizona.
Jack‘s goal for Every Man Arizona is to inspire men to identify and develop Christian character. That character should be modeled after Christ and the word of God. Every Man Arizona is also a channel for men to meet and interact with other men to mature their faith, serve their community and most of all grow to be a Christlike model in their family.
John Hanson has been involved with Every Man Arizona and served on the Board since its inception. John is a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and currently serves as ERAU’s Director of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs. He has over two decades of business and finance experience. He is a Navy Submarine Veteran. He served in the Gulf War. He and his wife Kelly have been married for 22 years and have been blessed by God with four children ages 21 to 10. The Hansons attend Prescott Christian Church.
Ministries, like Every Man Arizona, are crucial for men in today’s society. Today, men are under constant attack. They are being marginalized, forced to give up or limit their masculinity and question who they are. Young men and boys are being indoctrinated and limited early on in their lives. Many men have compromised and are not living up to the standard that God expects. Our world needs strong, godly men who will stand and fight for what is right and true.
Every Man Arizona is an avenue to bring men closer to who they need to be, who they can be and who they should be.
