Katie Ricchuiti

Katie Ricchuiti worked in the education field for 12 years as a high school teacher teaching AP Calculus, AVID, and a leadership class. Katie was passionate about encouraging and equipping students to live life well and pursue their potential.

Her heart bleeds for each woman to experience a relationship with God.

Amy Collins is the CEO & Co-Founder of RoRo’s Baking Company, located right here in Dallas, TX. They have a team of 8 female bakers who hand make thousands of Cinnamon rolls daily. All of their rolls are sold frozen in specialty grocery stores throughout Texas, surrounding states, and online. Haven't tried RoRo's yet? GET TO SHOPPING! You can thank us later.

With a big dream and lot’s of determination, RoRo’s has grown to gain national exposure.  Loved by Oprah & Good Morning America, RoRo’s has stayed true to where they started by preserving the art of handmade rolls made famous by Amy's grandmother.

When Amy isn't busy growing her company, she can often be found wondering the aisles of Central Market, at Orange Theory, or working on her 1950’s fixer upper in Richardson.  Amy is married to her Nashville college sweetheart, and they just celebrated 7 years of marriage! Amy and her hubby are completely obsessed with their two fur babies: Golden Retriever, Finnley, and Weimaraner, Tucker.  One of Amy's greatest blessings in life so far is experiencing the Lord’s faithfulness in the restoration of her marriage.  

She is a lover of all things white and gold, Rosemary Beach, and interior design, and she'll never turn down a new gel polish or a good iced coffee!  

Amy's story is one of hope and redemption! We know you're going to love hearing from her.

Dawn Stephens

dawn headshot-1.jpg

Dawn graduated from Clark Atlanta University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Physics, from Rice University with a Master’s of Engineering in Electrical Engineering, and from the University of Georgia with a Juris Doctorate (say what?!) After working for a few years as an Associate for Needle & Rosenberg, she joined Texas Instruments as Patent Counsel. Then she took on the role as Corporate Administrator for a booming church plant, One Community Church, where she managed staff and volunteers in several departments.
 
While the seed for Dawn’s ministry passion was planted during the years she spent in Sunday School, her passion became more evident as she began serving in capacities more aligned with her gift/skill mix. The joy that she found in serving was inexpressible. As a single woman living away from home, her life changed dramatically through the community that she found in ministry. Given these, her ministry passions include creating room for people to use their gifts/skills in ministry and helping women, especially single women, grow through community.

You won't want to miss hearing Dawn's story at our first luncheon of the fall semester!
