Scott and Leigh Hankal have lived in the Atlanta area for 27years but still fondly refer to Texas as “home.” They both attended Baylor University and were married in 1989 shortly after graduation. The Lord has blessed the Hankals with three wonderful girls; Anna (24), Libby (20) and Mattie Grace (18). Although they have flown the nest and live in different zip codes now, they remain just a text away!
After settling in West Cobb, the family joined Midway church in 2000, just about the time the girls were starting at Midway Covenant Christian School. Once all three were in school, Leigh began to work part-time as the Latin teacher for MCCS. And as of June, of this year, she has transitioned to the Midway church secretary position. Scott has worked for Genuine Parts Company for 30 years in various roles but is currently working as Sr. Director – Store Technology. Scott has also been given the opportunity to serve on the Midway Session in previous years.
According to the Hankals, Midway has been so much more than a church home. It has truly been incorporated into every aspect of their lives from worship and serving, to work and education and lifelong friendships. However,the main reason the Hankals call Midway their church home is because of the high view of God and Scripture found here. They feel that no church will be perfect, but one that is willing to run life through the grid of Scripture is one worth attending. Please join us and see for yourselves!
