Hannah Bender

Director of Educational Services

[email protected]


My name is Hannah Bender. I am a nurse serving as the Director of Educational Services with MMO.  I grew up in rural western NY. I was exposed to the medical scene as a fifteen year old patient, and God used my illness to lead me to nursing. I moved to Greenville, SC for school in 2009 and continued to work there after school as both an ICU nurse and clinical nursing instructor. During nursing school, I felt the Lord calling me to full-time service, potentially in church-planting. I traveled on several MMO trips as a volunteer and in 2019 joined as a staff member. This role combines my passions for nursing, the church, teaching and traveling into one amazing opportunity. When I'm home, I love hiking, playing tennis and exploring new places with friends and family.
