Sola (Alone)

500 years ago the church was preoccupied with practices and politics. SCRIPTURE had taken a back seat to tradition and whatever was convenient for those with the power to stay in power. GRACE had become distorted. . .

Connect

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our community to serve our community. Each week, hundreds of people at Christ LR get together learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, live, and Imitate Jesus.

Jesus is the most generous person who ever lived. He gave his life so that we might live. As Christians, we give our time, talent, and money joyfully in response to Jesus’ generosity and to help more people meet Jesus.

Pastor Dan

Dan Hauser

Lead Pastor
"If you ask me to describe myself, I would say, “A follower of Jesus, a husband to a wonderful wife, a dad of 3 amazing kids, someone who loves people, yet loves to be out in nature, a musician, and an avid Chicago Bears Fan!” Family: Andrea and I have been married for 20 years, we have twins that are about 10 and our oldest is almost 12. We love hanging out as a family, whether camping, playing games, or just chilling. Education and Experience: I graduated from Concordia Chicago in 1996 as a Director of Christian Education (DCE), serving as a DCE at both Bethel in Morton, IL and CrossPoint in Katy, TX. I graduated in 04 from Concordia Nebraska with a Masters in Family Life, and from Concordia Seminary St. Louis in 06 and served as a Pastor at CrossPoint-SevenLakes in Katy TX."

Worship & Arts Director
"What an incredible God we have! It has been my privilege to lead Christ in lifting holy hands and praising our God as leader of worship and arts. Before I came to Christ I studied jazz music at Hope College in Michigan and contemporary music and arts in Southern California at Concordia University, Irvine, where I met my outrageously beautiful wife, Tabitha. We’re both the outdoors type and spend most of our free time camping with our greyhound, playing soccer, or being challenged by some complicated house project without one of our four kids grabbing some fast spinning sharp object. We’ve been blessed to serve Little Rock with the gifts God has given us!"

Logan Brown

Youth Director
"It is a true blessing to be a part of this family of faith here at Christ Little Rock. If I could describe myself in a nutshell I would say I am a young, energetic, caring, and loving follower of the Risen King! My lovely Bride Ashley and I met at Concordia University in Austin Texas, while we were both pursuing our ministry degrees; me as a Director of Christian Education, and Ashley as a Lutheran Teacher. We were married in July of 2011, and set off on our ministry together just a few weeks after. I love Mexican food, ultimate frisbee, hiking, golfing, and digging into God’s word with students. Here at Christ Lutheran we are ready to impact lives forever with Christ’s Love and can’t wait for you to be a part of that too!"
Andrea Hauser

Andrea Hauser

Children's Director
"I think I have the greatest job in the world! It is such a joy and privilege to help our kids and families grow in their relationship with Jesus AND to have so much fun in the process! Before coming to Christ Little Rock I did Children’s Ministry at CrossPoint in Katy, TX, I taught elementary grades in both Christian and public schools, and I had the joy of being able to stay home with my three kids when they were young. I have a degree in education from Concordia Chicago. My husband, Dan, and I have been married 17 years. We have three great kids, a daughter Elizabeth who is in second grade and twins, Nate and Hannah who are in Kindergarten. Our absolute favorite thing to do together is go camping and are loving living in the natural state!"

"My wife Debbie and I both grew up in Arkansas, and met while serving as civil engineers at Arkansas Department of Transportation. We started carpooling together 28 years ago, and have been carpooling ever since! I signed up for retirement in 2015, and within 3 months of signing the papers I had three different people tell me I should consider going into the ministry. Debbie and I decided to start walking through the doors God seemed to be opening, and here we are. I’m currently enrolled in Concordia Seminary St. Louis, working toward ordination as an Associate Pastor and serving here at Christ in Pastoral Care ministry. It’s an honor to be asked by this amazing congregation to join this outstanding team, and I’m excited to see what the Lord has in store for career number two!"
Olivia Barnes

Olivia Barnes

Director of Discipleship & Development
"Christ Little Rock has been my home for almost fifteen years! First as a youth, then Mother's Day Out and Little Rock School of the Arts, but now, after studying church work at Concordia, Austin, I have the joy and privilege of being on staff here serving the church and community! I have so much passion for people (and even my dog, Barnaby) and fulfilling Jesus' command to "make disciples". I am excited to be part of a team that has the same mind-set!"

School Principal
"Little Rock became home for me in 2002 when I graduated from Concordia University-Chicago and moved here to serve as the Junior High Math teacher. In January 2011, God led me into administration right here at Christ Lutheran, and I am enjoying the adventure each day brings! After serving here over a decade, it is amazing to watch kids grow in their relationship with Jesus and become caring adults in our community. I love when former students come back to visit—and sometimes with their spouse—wow, I’m getting old. My husband and I enjoy being outdoors on trails, college football (Go Hogs!) and just relaxing with a movie or book."

Central Support Director
"I grew up right here in Little Rock and work only blocks from my childhood home where my parents still live. Working over 25 years in accounting, I never thought I would do anything different, but one of my favorite bible verses is Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” I am so thankful to have this opportunity to be a part of such an awesome ministry. Besides my passion for our mission here at Church, I love to spend time with my friends and family and cherish each and every one of them! My favorite place in my home is the kitchen and if I could have two dream jobs, my second would be that of a chef! I seem to be a cat magnet and have a precious blue heeler named Sarah."

Church Office Assistant
"My family and I moved back to Arkansas in 2012 and started working here the following year. I was leery because I thought, “Oh Lordy, a church secretary?! This is going to be so BORING!” But boy how I was wrong! I absolutely love working here, because there’s always something going on. I love praying with the team, and having a lot of fun together, especially when we all eat lunch! My son, Joseph, graduated from the Christ Little Rock Lutheran School in 2017. My favorite thing about working here was that I was able to see my son all throughout the day."
