Living Word Christian Center
Mac Hammond is senior pastor of Living Word Christian Center, a large and growing church in Brooklyn Park (a suburb of Minneapolis), Minnesota. He is the host of the Winner’s Minute, which is seen locally in the Minneapolis area on WCCO Channel 4 at 6:54 a.m. and on Comcast and Charter on the Fox News Channel at 7:20 a.m. He is also the host of the Winner’s Way broadcast and author of several internationally distributed books. Mac is broadly acclaimed for his ability to apply the principles of the Bible to practical situations and the challenges of daily living.
After graduating from Virginia Military Institute in 1965, Mac Hammond completed Air Force pilot training, served two tours of duty in Southeast Asia, and was honorably discharged in 1970 with the rank of Captain.
Between 1970 and 1980, Mac was involved in varying capacities in the general aviation industry including ownership of a successful air cargo business serving the Midwestern United States. A business acquisition brought the Hammonds to Minneapolis where they ultimately founded Living Word Christian Center in 1980 with 12 people in attendance. Today, after nearly 35 years, that group of twelve people has grown into an active church body of 11,000 members.
