Shane Hansen is a disciple of Jesus Christ, a husband, a father, and an entrepreneur. He is an International Coach Federation (ICF) trained life coach and graduate of the Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC) program through the Christian Coach Institute. He also holds a Bachelor’s Degree (BA) and Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA).
Shane has a heart for helping young adults in their earthly walk of life as they continue to grow and develop into the family, church, business, and community leaders that God is calling them to become. He does not teach about the Bible or religion as a trained Pastor or theologian would, but rather relates Christian principles to the everyday walk of earthly life. Applying a Christian perspective to real life, while using the discipline of coaching to help people learn how to tap into their own gifts, talents, and dreams and to embrace the responsibility for developing and growing under their own steam.
Working with young adults has been a driving passion throughout Shane's career. He has spent 15+ years serving young adults in a variety of roles, including as a College Baseball Coach, High School Athletic Director, Director of Youth Ministry and (since 2015) as a Christian Life Coach. Shane has also served as a mentor, leader and supervisor for a wide range of young adults in the workplace.
Now, as he focuses on working with those in the 16-35 year old chapter of life, Shane is able to approach the work with the unique combination of his vast/relevant professional experience, as well as from the perspective of someone who has recently walked through that time of life himself. Shane fully understands the challenges associated with the young adult years, and has an easy/relatable style in working with young adults.
Shane is married to the love of his life, his best friend Sarah, and they are blessed with four children (Christian, Taeklah, Isaiah, Elijah.)
In addition to homeschooling their children, they love to travel, spend time at the family cabin and putz around on their hobby farm.
It was while spending the first 10+ years of his career in athletics administration that Shane started feeling God calling him to serve in a different capacity. Through much prayer, reflection and research Shane felt that God had blessed him with the spiritual gifts, professional/life experiences and personality that He did in order to prepare him to help others on their life journey while serving as a Christian Life Coach.
But hearing God tell you to change careers, and then actually following through on that call, can be difficult, and Shane kept thinking that he would follow someday. God had different plans. While Shane had been a believer in God his entire life, he didn't fully surrender and "let go & let God" completely take over all aspects of his life until his only sibling, his much beloved older sister Kayte, was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. Her diagnosis, and ultimate call home to eternal glory in heaven a year later at the age of 35, served as the final catalyst that God used to help Shane wake up to the reality that tomorrow is not guaranteed to any of us. If there is something that needs to be done this side of heaven, the time to do it is RIGHT NOW. The experience of feeling God speaking so directly to him served as an incredibly life changing source of motivation and inspiration for Shane. That profound experience led Shane to fully dedicate the rest of his life to following and serving the Lord in every aspect.
