Staff Spotlight: Katie Brunner

How long have you been with the ministry?

I have been with the ministry for about a year and a half.

What do you do for Hour of Power?

I am the Executive Assistant to the Executive Director of Operations, as well as IT help desk.

How did God bring you to the ministry?

Before I found this job, or rather this job found me, I was working in sales. I didn’t feel like I was making a positive difference in the world as much as I desired. When I began seeking other opportunities, I stumbled upon a Social Media Strategist job opening through a staffing agency. Despite receiving minimal information about the position, there must have been immediate chemistry between the interviewers and me, because I was hired on the spot. The position as well as the work environment was exactly what I needed, for my emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Every day I am reminded that I am on the right path. It was absolutely meant to be!

What is your favorite part about working here?

Definitely the people! My coworkers have the warmest, kindest, most open hearts and minds.

Do you have an impactful story to share from your job?

I recently experienced a death in my family that impacted me pretty roughly. I had not told more than a few people on staff about this, but one morning I walked into the office and one of my coworkers immediately got up and gave me a hug. She said, “It will all be okay.” I thanked her and told her that I hadn’t experienced a loss like this and was taking it hard. She looked at me shocked and said, “I’m so sorry I had no idea! The Lord just put it on my heart to pray for you and tell you that everything will be okay.” I could have dropped to my knees and sobbed at that very moment—it was exactly what I needed. This ministry is filled with amazing souls, caring for each other just as they would care for themselves. We are a family. And we are so, so blessed.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?

I love to paint. I am also a professional fire performer, which is one of my main passions.
