Hello! I'm Dina Hackert.
As a young girl, I had a love and passion for sports and went on to play college basketball. While at Hope College, I helped lead my basketball team to the NCAA National Championship by sinking two free throws with no time left on the clock. Drawing on my athletic history, I continue to speak on various high school and college campuses. Through my parents' divorce, sports injuries, and two diagnoses of cancer, I have experienced first hand the faithfulness of God to His Word, and therefore I have a passion for people to experience Him through the power of His Word when applied to their lives.
After completing Bible School, my husband Jeff and I planted our first church in Michigan in 2000. In September of 2015, we planted Radiant Church in Brandenburg, KY. We, along with our congregation, place a high value on making an impact in our community with the love and light of Christ. In addition to pastoring, I minister at various types of conferences, retreats, and athletic events. I coach our local high school girls varsity basketball team and am on the coaching staff for Kentucky Premiere on the EYBL Circuit.
Jeff and I have been married for 32 years and have four children: Travis, Leah, Spencer, and Calvin. Travis and his wife, Ali, live in Brandenburg, KY with their sons, Grady, Griffin and Grant. Leah and her husband, Scott, also reside in Brandenburg, KY with their three kids, Payson, Piper, and Nash. Spencer and his wife, Katie, along with their son, JJ, live in Kalamazoo, MI where Spencer pastors at Radiant Church. Calvin resides in Denver, CO where he teaches elementary P.E.
