  • dion hunter

    administrative coordinator


    Dion was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. He attended the State University of New York at Albany and obtained a B.A. in Communications. There he met his beautiful wife, Sally, and relocated to Maryland.

    Dion and his wife were determined to find a welcoming Bible-based church that would draw them closer to God, each other, and allow them to fellowship with other Christians. That desire eventually led them to Life Church.  He enjoys spending time with his wife, reading the Bible, and helping where needed. 

    Respect, loyalty, and obedience to the word are important to him. He is always willing to lend an ear. He has a major sweet tooth and enjoys sweets of all kinds (especially Christmas tree cakes and other seasonal treats).
