Teri Hudson-Dirks

Youth and Children’s Ministry Director

I have always thought myself a Christian but feel like I really began to grow in my faith after taking a forgiveness class offered at church. That step into faith has led me to bring more and more of myself to Jesus and the church in many different areas including; Sunday school, youth group, choir, Tabitha Circle and Trustees.

My career as an RN makes me a caregiver however Christ’s love shows me how to deliver that care in a loving way both in and outside of work. I have been employed by Avera McKennan since 1997 when I moved to Harrisburg. I have held multiple positions in Perioperative Services and am currently the Instrumentation Control manager in Materials Management researching and recommending instrumentation and equipment for the OR’s as well as other Avera departments and facilities.

I tease Pastor Kyle when I say I work at my day job to support my church habit!
