I'm Jim Hudzinski, and I will be assisting Pastor Dan DeVries while serving Hope Haven in the role of Spiritual Support Associate.
It is an honor for me to provide spiritual support to staff and clients in our eastern region, including the areas of Spirit Lake, Estherville, Spencer, and Storm Lake. I will also be connecting with pastors and churches in those areas to increase their capacity to welcome people with disabilities. My office is located in Storm Lake.
Prior to joining Hope Haven, I served a number of northwest Iowa churches as an itinerant minister. I have also been a local church pastor in the Quad Cities area, and I’m originally from southeastern Wisconsin.
One of my favorite Bible verses says, “This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24 ESV). Every day of life is truly a gift to receive with joy and anticipation. I believe God has exciting things for all of us in the days ahead!
