About Kathryn Hanley
My name is Kathryn Hanley. I am originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I am the oldest of four younger siblings, two of which my family recently adopted. My amazing parents still live in Tulsa with the rest of my family. I am the wife of Holden Hanley, who serves on EMIC Staff as the Prayer Ministry Coordinator. We were just recently married in May of 2018, and we are enjoying the journey of navigating our new life together! I enjoy outdoor activities and travelling. I am so in love with Jesus, and especially love to travel around the world preaching the Gospel. I have been to seven nations so far, and still counting! Additionally, I love art, music, and reading.
I was born and raised with my mom being on a church staff, so I grew up in church. With my mom serving in full time ministry and my dad being a Rhema Bible College graduate, I met Jesus at a young age and was blessed to have been raised in a home where the gift of faith was deeply instilled in me. I grew up listening to the teachings of Kenneth Copeland, Keith Moore, Jesse Duplantis, Kenneth Hagin, and many more. I accepted Jesus as my Savior at a young age and was later baptized with the Holy Spirit during my freshman year of college at Oral Roberts University. As I grew up, I recognized the call to fivefold ministry on my life. I am passionate about the discipleship of the Church, about ministering identity and purpose through the Word of God, and about bringing truth and hope to the body of Christ and to the next generation through teaching and discipleship. While at ORU, I received my bachelor’s degree in Ministry and Leadership with a minor in Missions, and I met my husband, Holden. After I graduated from ORU in the spring of 2018, I relocated to Fort Worth, Texas to serve here at EMIC alongside my husband.
I am the Middle School Minister here at EMIC. I work closely with 14forty pastoral leadership, and I connect with both volunteers and students while doing my best to serve them and meet their needs in any way that I can. I love serving here at EMIC, and thank the Lord daily for the privilege to do what I do. My life Scripture is Galatians 2:20 (ESV). “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
