Pastor Marlowe Hanna

Married to Tenée Hanna in May 2000 (six children 2 boys & 4 girls).
Attended various Calvary Chapels and serving God for the past 17 years.
Attending Calvary Chapel Cary since 2011.

I first believed in God and His word when I was about 8 years old. I remember listening to a series of bible audio tapes and feeling a great sense that the Word I was hearing was true! I didn’t fully understand at the time, but now I can clearly see that God gave me the faith to believe in the scripture. (For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works lest any man should boast” Ephesians (2:8-9)

One evening after I listened to a series on the book of Revelation, I went into my room and knelt down to pray.  I didn’t really know what to say— I never heard of the “sinners prayer”. I only knew that the Bible was true. I prayed and said, “God I believe this is true” and immediately I experienced a great sense of peace!

I did not immediately walk with God nor grow in a relationship with Jesus. For many years I lived a life of brokenness and sin!

In 1998, I met my wife Tenée. The Lord used her to help me to grow in my faith in Christ. We began to attend Gateway Christian Church (a Calvary Chapel affiliate) where we settled into verse by verse teaching of the scriptures. I dedicated my life to Christ, was baptized and began to grow in grace and in the knowledge of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

My family and I relocated to North Carolina in 2011 where we have been blessed through the teaching ministry of Pastor Rodney at Calvary Chapel Cary.
