Jennie DimkoffJennie Afman Dimkoff

Jennie Afman Dimkoff is a motivational speaker, trainer and storyteller, traveling widely throughout the US, Canada, and abroad, speaking for women’s retreats and conferences. She has spoken for arena events, including Heritage Keepers and Time out for Women.  She is the President of Storyline Ministries, Inc., the author and storyteller for Kids’ Time, and serves on the staff of Speak Up With Confidence Seminars with her sister, author Carol Kent.

Her first two books, Night Whispers, Bedtime Bible Stories for Women, and More Night Whispers were published by Revell. Both were later released with the addition of 10-week Bible studies under the new titles: Passionate Faith, and Unexpected Grace, and may be ordered from her website. A gifted storyteller, Jennie has stories published by numerous other publishing houses including NAV Press, Honor Books, Cook Communications, and Zondervan.  Jennie’s newest book, His Kiss, which she has written in partnership with her sister, Carol Kent, will be released by the Howard Division of Simon and Schuster in the fall of 2011.

Passionate about women’s ministries, Jennie helped establish the annual Cornerstone University Women’s Leadership Conference and has worked with many women’s ministry leaders around the country, both as a speaker for their organizations, and as a mentor, and encourager. She serves on the Board of Trustees for Cornerstone University and the Grand Rapids Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI. She also serves on the Board of Speak Up for Hope a non-profit organization that encourages the families of incarcerated individuals, and on the Board of Directors for RBC Ministries.

A meaningful addition to her ministry has been the frequent opportunity to speak for Campus Crusade outreach events on many secular campuses, and she laughingly admits that after years of speaking for “polite church women” at retreats and conferences, it was quite a personal growth experience to speak to young, interactive, mixed gender, audiences that sometimes “yell back at me!”

As the wife of a retired Lt. Col. in the USAFR and the mom of a young Army Captain, Jennie is also quick to say “Yes!” when opportunities to minister to military wives and female military personnel present themselves.  In the last several years she has spoken at military events in Seoul, Korea, Germany, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, and others. “It is a privilege to bring inspiration, hope, and encouragement to women who are far from home and often are serving as single parents while their husbands are deployed.”

Married to her best friend, Probate Court Judge Graydon Dimkoff, Jennie is mom to their two grown children, Amber and Josh. She has a heart for God, and a passion to win other to Christ.
