Dr. Bill Haken
Upon graduation from Bob Jones University Cum Laude with a Bible major/English minor, Pastor Bill and Jeannette Haken conducted evangelistic crusades in the US and overseas from 1969 to 1980. They planted Capital Bible Church in Bill’s hometown of Harrisburg in 1980 and led the church through 5 locations to the present 12-acre site on Capital Drive, where the Family Life Center was built in 2007. Bill’s passion is to preach and teach the Bible, to help people grow in their walk with God and to win as many people to Christ as possible. His preaching is Biblically sound and practical with answers and hope for the trials of life. Playing golf, fishing and hunting, growing beautiful flowers and reading mysteries are some of the things Bill enjoys doing for relaxation.
AJ graduated from Lancaster Bible College Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Biblical Studies, with a minor in Pastoral ministry. He was called to the Gospel ministry and ordained in 2017. AJ and his wife, Stephanie, created and led a thriving young adult ministry for 3 years before coming to Capital Bible Church. He has a passion for learning about God, seeing Jesus proclaimed and glorified, and Bible-based preaching. He enjoys reading and studying preachers from the past, such as Spurgeon, Edwards, Whitefield, Calvin, Luther and Augustine. AJ also enjoys sports, board games and hanging out with friends.
