Director of Spiritual Development and Administration
Dawn Spainhower serves as our Director of Spiritual Development and Administration. Prior to this role, she served as the director of our Reed Road location for two and a half years, director at our Bandera Road location for seven and a half years and as Regional Director of Operations for 2 years. The knowledge she gained, coupled with her personal aptitude for relational ministry has led us to create a unique role for her within the industry. We believe caring for the spiritual health of our team members is crucial, and Dawn is perfect for the job.
Dawn has been instrumental in establishing a culture of partnership and community with our Pillars Families at all our locations. She also pioneered our weekly chapel programs in her early days as a director, as she has been working with young children in her church since she herself was just a little girl. Dawn attends the Church of God of Prophecy on Ingram Road. She is actively involved in her church on both a state and local level and volunteers at summer church camps.
Dawn believes that teaching and working with children should be enjoyable for everyone involved – children, teachers, and parents. “We need to have a clear purpose to nurture a child’s awareness of God and understand our fundamental call to minister to this unique mission field. Psalm127:4, Solomon compares children to arrows. Arrows are sharpened, arrow are aimed at a target and then released with purpose. We have a wonderful opportunity to mold and shape our children to be world changers. We have a window of opportunity to minister to families and help children understand how much God loves them. “
Dawn has a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education from Ohio University. She has been married to Donald since 1990 and together they have two adult children. Her hobbies include reading, singing, playing the guitar, and playing the saxophone.
