Dr. Amy Hanson is a speaker, writer, and consultant with a passion to help older adults discover a life of Christ-centered meaning and purpose.

She speaks throughout the United States to pastors, health care professionals, and older adults on the unique needs and opportunities of a graying America.

At the age of 23, Amy became the full-time active adult minister at Central Christian Church in Las Vegas, Nevada where for five years she led a ministry of over three hundred adults fifty and older.

Amy has a Bachelor’s degree in Bible and Family Ministry from Manhattan Christian College, a Master’s degree in Gerontology from Abilene Christian University, and a Ph.D. in Human Sciences from the University of Nebraska. She teaches several aging courses at the college-level and has conducted research on volunteerism among older adults in the church.

Amy’s experience also includes working with a Christian continuing care retirement community as well as serving on the Speakers Bureau for the Alzheimer’s Association. She has written a number of articles on older adult ministry for Leadership Network, Rev! and Christian Standard and she is the author of the book, Baby Boomers and Beyond:  Tapping the Ministry Talents and Passions of Adults over 50.

Amy and her husband, Jon, live in Council Bluffs, Iowa with their three children, Ella, Eli, and Elise.

I’ve known Dr. Amy Hanson from her earliest days of ministry with older adults. There is no one more qualified, more passionate, and more equipped to speak to the opportunities for unleashing an aging America to change the world.
