As a young girl, Dina had a love and passion for sports and went on to play college basketball. While at Hope College, Dina led her basketball team to the NCAA National Championship by sinking two free throws with no time left on the clock. She continues to speak on various high school and college campuses. Through her parents' divorce, sports injuries, and two diagnoses of cancer, Dina has experienced first hand the faithfulness of God to His Word, and therefore has a passion for people to experience Him through the power of His Word when applied to their lives.
After completing Bible School, Dina and her husband Jeff planted their first church in Michigan in 2000. In September of 2015, they planted Radiant Church in Kentucky. They along with their congregation place a high value on making an impact in their community with the love and light of Christ. In addition to pastoring, Dina ministers at various types of conferences, retreats and athletic events.
