Winning Group Director-Fort Wayne Campus
Hello, my name is Dondra. I am the Winning Group Director. We have fantastic leaders who do an exceptional job leading the groups throughout the year. It is always a joy to see someone who attends Summit Church get connected into a Winning Group where he or she can develop meaningful relationships, grow closer to God and begin a journey to serve as a leader.
Contact me if you would like to know more about Winning Groups.
I have lived in Fort Wayne, Indiana for most of my life. I am a third generation entrepreneur and I believe that the greatest learning experiences always occur within the family unit. My life is dedicated to serving God and my family. I am the mother of two wonderful sons, Walik and Zachary. My boys keep the spice in my life and through them I often witness how wonderful God is in all creation. We enjoy traveling, laughing, and random dancing.
My first experience with small groups began over 20 years ago in a twelve-step fellowship. After 10 years of serving in this capacity, I realized that there was a void in my life. In response to a call I can’t quite describe in words, I believe God led me to Summit Church where I found a place to belong and grow closer to Him. And did I mention the Winning Groups? I am so thankful to God for a church like Summit Church that’s committed to getting people connected to God and ultimately winning in life. I am forever grateful that God allows me to be a part of it!
