Dinah Hodgson

Hi I'm Dinah!

I'm a pastor, have a Master’s in Ministry with the focus in Leadership, and Christian Counseling, and have years of personal experience.

My greatest passion in life is to follow Jesus and be a ‘living epistle’ that reflects the life and love of Jesus to those around me.

Although initially trained as a registered nurse, Dinah’s life was refocused in early 2000 when she sensed a call to full-time ministry. She attended Grand Canyon University’s Christian Leadership program and became ordained by Messenger Fellowship.

Dinah has served in a myriad of leadership roles including staff pastor within the local church, as well as para-church ministries and is passionate about helping individuals understand their identity and inheritance in Christ and experience greater depths of intimacy with the Triune God.

Dinah co-founded and managed the Repeat Boutique as well as co-founder of the local chapter of the Side by Side ministries.

Dinah recently graduated from Primus University of Theology with a Masters in Ministry focused on Leadership and Christian Counseling.

She has spoken nationally, as well as internationally at women’s retreats, and taught men and women’s classes.

New Book Explores The Healing Power of Facing Childhood Abuse and Trauma

Underneath her facade of happiness, Dinah Hodgson struggles emotionally.

When her unhappiness becomes too much to bear, she cries out to God, but His response is not what she expects: He leads her to reexamine her abusive childhood. Even though obedience will be painful, Dinah accepts that it’s the only way out of the dark place she’s found herself in.

What follows is a journey of reclaiming her destiny as God brings her “up from the ashes” and into abundant life.
