Executive Director

Dick came to ORPHANetwork from Willow Creek Community Church and Willow Creek Association. He joined Willow Creek Association International ministries to support the launch of The Global Leadership Summit and opening the Summit to countries in Latin America. His heart for serving the forgotten children of Nicaragua was born out of witnessing firsthand their extreme poverty. Dick casts an exciting vision for ONET: “Working with individuals and churches to make this happen will be life-changing for all of us.”

Katie earned her BA in Communication Studies from Old Dominion University. Her passion for helping children led her into working as an elementary school teacher, and now to ORPHANetwork. In 2010 Katie felt a calling from God to go Nicaragua on her first short-term mission trip, but little did she know, God would be setting the foundation for a future career.

Amy Bondi

Sponsorship & Donor Communications Assistant

Amy earned both her B.A. in Psychology and her M.Ed. in Counseling at the University of Virginia.  Before staying at home to raise her children, Amy led domestic violence education and outreach efforts as part of the staff at a domestic violence shelter in Charlottesville, VA.

After participating with Trinity Church on two missions trips to Nicaragua, she came home and felt the Lord encouraging her to help in the ORPHANetwork office because "the work done in Virginia Beach, no matter how large or small, rescues children and impacts generations in Nicaragua."
