Who We Are
Eric and Carol Hanson have been involved in short-term missions since 1995. Shortly after their first mission trip to Nigeria, they joined a missions organization in Nashville, Tennessee, where they began learning how to train, deploy, and lead short-term mission teams. Privileged to work with many evangelical churches, they have taken countless teams to over 30 countries – ministering through street evangelism, church planting, leadership training, children’s ministry, worship conferences, orphanage ministry, construction, and medical clinics.
For over 16 years, Eric served as the International Impact Director for Christ Community Church, a multi-campus church in the Chicago suburbs (www.ccclife.org). His ministry mobilized 25 short-term mission teams annually, traveling to five continents, working alongside national ministry partners. Thousands of people around the world were impacted through this ministry under his direction.
Eric and Carol have spoken at national and regional short-term missions conferences and consulted with churches about partnerships and short-term missions development. Carol is an instructional designer and eLearning developer and enjoys creating impactful learning solutions for organizations.
The Lord called Eric home to heaven in May of 2021 while he was on mission to bring the gospel to remote regions of the Amazon. Carol continues to run Mission Excell, while Eric's legacy continues to inspire those on earth to bring the gospel to all nations. His memorial service can be viewed here.
