Spotlight of the Week – Dori Horldt

Just a few weeks ago, we all met Alan but this week is all about his wonderful wife. Why you may ask? Because the Horldt family goes above and beyond the call of duty every single week.

For those of you who may not know, Dori serves as our Elementary School Team Leader in our KidTropolis Ministry.

So Dori is the one who has all the fun! Every single Sunday she comes in ready to do whatever it takes to make it happen in our children’s area so our kids will have the most incredible experience learning about Jesus as they possibly can. She and her team completely transform the theater they are located into a world where kids can be kids; where their imaginations come alive – singing and dancing and learning about Jesus.

And every single week I am blown away by the smiles on our kid’s faces as they walk out of the room excited about everything they got experience on Sunday morning. In fact, the majority of our kids don’t want to leave and they are ready to stay as long as they can simply because of how much fun they are having learning about Jesus.

Dori is somebody who gets it. She understands how much the world is buying for their attention and how we as the church must do everything within our power to win them to Christ. Dori realizes that our children are not just the church of the future, but rather the church of today. She takes seriously the opportunity we have each week to speak truth into the lives of our kids in a way they will remember forever.

And Dori radically changes the lives in this generation as she and her team serve passionately to see children love Jesus!!!

Thank you Dori for what you do!

Thank you for serving each and every week. Thank you for creating an environment where children can experience the love of Christ in an exciting and relevant way. Thank you for loving our kids enough to do whatever it takes to see them know Jesus. And thank you for embodying this passage of Scripture every single week you serve…

“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to these.”  Matthew 19:14    

You are not just a volunteer, you are a connector to the current of the power of Christ! And you are setting an example for all of us to see what God will do when we completely sell out to see Jesus live in the life our kids.
