Originally from England, Alex and Hannah Absalom grew up in a culture that was becoming rapidly post-Christian. As church leaders – originally as planters in London, and then as pastors in the industrial city of Sheffield – they learned many significant lessons about how to make disciples and extend the Kingdom in a thoroughly post-Christian society.
With the encouragement of some wonderful colleagues and mentors, the Absaloms began to recognize a call to use their gifts and experience to help leaders, churches and denominations make this missional and disciple-making focused shift.
Called as missionaries to America in 2007, Alex and Hannah, along with their three sons, have served in churches in Oklahoma City, NE Ohio, and Long Beach CA. They currently live as a family in Long Beach, where Alex is part of the leadership of Grace Church.
Together Alex and Hannah have learned how to build dynamic disciple-making cultures, and specifically have overseen the planting of over 110 mid-sized missional communities. This was especially notable at Rivertree Church in Ohio, as a church-planting, multi-site mega-church is a complex context for such a turn around! The Absaloms have coached and consulted with a diverse and charming variety of churches and denominations from across the United States, which has given them an added layer of insight into helping leaders and churches grow better at making disciple-makers.
