Our Local Board Of Elders:

Katie Hanchett

Katie and her husband, Ben, started attending Antioch Beverly shortly after having their first child and moving back up to the North Shore. She fell in love with the North Shore while attending Gordon College and was excited to move up to Ipswich after spending a few years in the Boston area.

They since have added a couple more to the mix and have three children: Micah, Chloe, and Nathaniel. When she's not home with her kids, Katie enjoys serving on the worship team and in the nursery, as well as working part-time as a Spanish tutor and piano teacher.

Keith grew up in the Chicago area before migrating to the Northeast for college. Shortly after graduating, Keith began attending Antioch Beverly where he met his wife, Sarah. He completed a Master of Theology degree at Gordon-Conwell theological seminary, and works in marketing at a local software company.

Keith and Sarah have three kids: Lukas, Charis, and Jake and Keith is particularly proud of the fact this his children are Cubs fans.
