From Texas to Toronto, the Lord called Hassan to ministry as a young buck at the age of 18. He preached his first sermon at his home church (Eastside Baptist Church) under the ministry of Reverend D.P Williams. Hassan holds a B.S in Sociology from Midwestern State University (Texas) and an M.Div. from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. He came to Thistletown in 2008 and served as the Associate Pastor under Rev. Kenneth G. Davis, before becoming the Senior Pastor in the summer of 2014.
Hassan is husband to his beautiful wife, Kathy and father to two energetic little boys, Ezra and Benaiah. He enjoys good food (especially barbecue), good people and good music. He’s a football fanatic and an avid puller of weeds!
