Dawn Pulgine

Adult Ministry Minister

Hey there! I’m Dawn, wife to Tony, mom to three grown children, “Booga” to three silly, yet precious granddaughters, and mother-in-law to one special guy.

I am also a women’s minister, writer, public speaker, and Bible teacher who is passionate about people and the Bible, devoted to helping YOU know God deeply and understand His Word accurately, cultivating an unwavering faith grounded in Scripture and active in your daily life.

Born and raised in the Chicago burbs, I grew up an only child of divorced parents. It was my grandma who introduced me to the Bible and the importance of prayer and knowing God’s Word. It was her example and love for Jesus that caused me to hunger for that same devout faith.

I grew up in our family-owned bakery in Oswego, Illinois, so I knew the restaurant business and loved working with the public. Turns out this early experience of working with people would serve me well down the road.

At the age of 21, I married Tony and over the next 10 years, we bought a dog and started a family. It was during this period that I was invited to a Bible study where I was transformed, and within a few years, my husband and I left our Catholic roots and joined a Protestant church. Soon after, I was asked to take on the position of Director of Women’s Ministries. I have never looked back.

I graduated in 2013 from Moody Bible Institute with a degree in Biblical Studies and Communications, equipping me to help you discover the truths within the pages of the Bible because I believe with my whole heart that if you want to walk in life freely you must know God deeply through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Today, I am also on the teaching team at Good Shepherd Church, where I preach on Sunday mornings and teach women’s ministry on Tuesdays.
