Dutt Concludes Service with DOOR
A longtime Discovering Opportunities for Outreach and Reflection (DOOR) staff member, Krista Dutt, has announced that she will conclude her service with DOOR in January.
In her 10 years with DOOR, Dutt has served as DOOR Chicago City Director and as DOOR National Program Director. As Chicago City Director, Dutt oversaw the weeklong Discover program, hosting an average of 725 youth and college service participants per year. She also guided 21 young adults through the yearlong Dwell program, helping them discern God’s call in their lives. In her role as National Program Director, Dutt helped shaped all of DOOR’s programs, providing a pastoral touch to program procedures. She was especially influential in shifting the Discern program from focusing on hiring summer staff to a program focusing on leadership and faith development.
In reflecting on her time at DOOR, Dutt said, “I believe in the power of DOOR. From those lightbulbs that I have witnessed in Discover groups, to the power of having local leaders teaching about their own city and neighborhoods with Discern, and with the life time commitment to live intentionally in Dwell. I have witnessed the change that our programs can induce.”
DOOR thanks Dutt for her years of dedicated service and wishes her well in her next venture working with the Mennonite Central Committee Great Lakes as a Program Associate for Chicago and Church Relations Director for Illinois.
