Denis Haack


Director of Ransom Fellowship

Denis is the founder and director of <a href="" target="_blank">Ransom Fellowship</a>. Denis is also the author of <i>The Rest of Success: What the World Didn?t Tell You About Having It All</i> and has written articles for such journals as Reformation & Revival Journal, Eternity, Covenant, and World. He is currently working on his Master of Theological Studies at Covenant Seminary in St. Louis. His undergraduate studies were done at the University of Minnesota and University of New Mexico. After a few years of living in a Christian commune (yes, that?s right, he and his wife were hippies), he staffed a church as a youth pastor and was recruited by InterVarsity Christian Fellowship where he eventually became area director of New Mexico, Arizona, and part of Texas. To support himself and his family, he did everything from pumping gas to delivering flowers to starting a janitorial business that didn?t boom until he gave the business to a friend who took the idea and ran with it. Before he and Margie owned a home, he always declared that their lawn would be made of rocks so he wouldn?t have to mow, but he?s now the proud owner of a self-propelled Honda lawnmower which he also uses to mulch every leaf that blows into the yard.
