Pastor Bob Hassel came to Faith Baptist Church of Champaign in 1986. At that time, he was called to serve as assistant pastor. After four and a half years of serving in this capacity, the senior pastor moved away and Pastor Hassel served as interim pastor for about six months. During this time of looking for a senior pastor, the Lord seemed to be leading the church to consider Pastor Hassel.
Brandon joined the staff in 2014.
