UKINYA HUNTER– Office Assistant
My name is Ukinya Hunter. I am a life-long member of New Hope Baptist Church. I enjoy working with young people and have a special connection to that group. While I was not blessed with many biological children, I have been blessed many children in the church. In my ministry roles, I work with the Youth and Children. I am on the following ministries at New Hope: Celebration Committee, Youth and Children, and the Visual Media. I am also a Deacon in Training. In addition, I volunteer with Grand Rapids Urban Young Life. A native of Grand Rapids, I graduated from Ottawa Hills High School and attended Grand Rapids Community College. In addition to my work as an office assistant, I am the Cluster Manager of Gatherings of Hope/Family Leadership Initiative/ Believe to Become. My desire is to become a motivational speaker. Through my work in church over the years, I have come to appreciate how my testimony can touch the lives of our youth. Outside of church, I volunteer with Fifth Third River Bank Run for the past 15 years and counting. I am the coordinator for 10k Course Crew.
