Introducing Charles Moses, our new Executive Director

Share with your friends:

“For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”
Romans 12:3-5

This summer we are teaching our youth about humble service in the Body of Christ.

Board Spotlight – Jeanne Osgood

hhyd board member jeanne osgood bethel university

My name is Jeanne Osgood and I currently serve as the Chief of Staff at Bethel University. Using my strengths in strategic planning and fundraising, most of my career has been spent in the non-profit sector with ministries that focus on impacting the lives of the next generation. I have been married to my husband, Eric, for 30 years. We have three children: Jake, 24, Kate, 21 and Tyson, 19.

I was introduced to HHYD several years ago by a current board member who invited me to the annual spring breakfast. I was drawn in by the work being done and the lives that are impacted. When I was invited to HHYD for a site visit, I met the leadership, the teachers, the coaches, and the staff. They are so passionate about their work that I couldn’t help but want to join in on what God is doing there. I joined the Board of HHYD February 2023.

What I appreciate most about HHYD is how the staff provides kids and families with educational resources and athletic opportunities – all while pointing them to Jesus.

I look forward to learning and growing from those at HHYD and am eager to see how God might also use me.

Church Spotlight – Faith Builders Church Visit

HHYD thoroughly enjoyed a visit of high schoolers from Faith Builders Church in Racine WI. They came to us through The Praying Pelicans, which is a local group that helps schedule ministry trips. The high schoolers helped mow and update the grounds, clean/wash our vans, paint several classrooms, and do a bunch of repairs. Their work and partnership with HHYD was greatly appreciated! Thank you Praying Pelicans and Faith Builders Church.

Mobile Loaves Twin Cities

Even in our vibrant Twin Cities many people don’t realize that there are many people all around us who are not getting basic needs met. Mobile Loaves Twin Cities has partnered with us at HHYD to feed our children. Click the link and see how they assist HHYD with feeding our children during Summer Spot. Summer Spot starts in the morning and some children stay into the evening. That means HHYD has to provide breakfast, lunch, and snacks for approximately 120 scholars throughout the time they are in our care. Thanks Mobile Loaves for being a part of our family for over 10 years.
