Mary VandenHazel, M.ED. is a Family Life Pastor, Christian Therapist and Certified Life Coach. She is currently Pastor of Women’s Ministry, Coaching-Counseling-Consulting Ministry and a Leadership Trainer for Mountain View Church.
Prior to being the Women’s Pastor, Mary wrote curriculum for school districts, provided social work for the state of Washington, led Crisis Teams, and acted as a Behavioral Intervention Specialist for at-risk youth. She had a thriving private practice for 12 years. Mary has a diverse background that has always been rooted in motivating people toward life change.
Before coming to work at Mountain View Church, Mary also played college basketball and began her coaching career when she was 24 years old. She coached every level and completed her coaching career at the college level. Mary has now transferred her ability to coach women on the hardwood to coaching women in the game of life!
Mary and Mark, college sweethearts, just celebrated 27 years of marriage! They have been blessed with three amazing children. Haley is a college student being called to Worship Ministries. Walker is studying pre-law and plays football for Azusa Pacific University and Weston is a sophomore at Tumwater High school. He is currently thrilled to have his driver’s license. You can find the VandenHazel Family on the lake, at Hoopfest, in the gym, at a concert, watching the Seahawks and forever and always… praying together.
In everything she does Mary stands by her goal; leading women to live the on-purpose life and to be in pursuit of their God- given dreams, passions and purposes.
