Colleen Hadsall was born and raised in Katy, Texas before making her way up to frigid St. Paul, Minnesota. Colleen attended Texas State University and graduated with a Bachelors in Communication Disorders. In the summer of 2008, she was given an opportunity to attend the School of the New Evangelization, which ended up being a turning point in her life. For the first time, Colleen witnessed the authenticity of college students who have a personal relationship with the Lord. Colleen was able to encounter Christ that summer in a way she never had.
Saint John Paul II once said, "Those who have come into genuine contact with Christ cannot keep Him for themselves, they must proclaim Him." That basically sums up her experience. Throughout the rest of her time in college the Lord continued to place and grow a burning desire for college students to know the Lord and choose Him for themselves. Colleen served as a Mission Leader for Saint Paul's Outreach for two years and then three years as the Women's Mission Director at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. She is currently serving the Minnesota Mission Center, the National Headquarters as the Women’s National Recruiter, and Texas as the Women’s supervisor.
Colleen is married to Kevin Hadsall and they are expecting their first child July 2016. She is very grateful for the mission of SPO and the way it has formed her and prepared her for her vocation, as bride and mother.
