Dianne Susman 
Director of Children's Ministry


Dianne was born and raised in Malaysia. Passionate about the nations, she and her husband, Nate, moved to Durham to be immersed in a larger international population.  When they heard that many refugees were being resettled in the area, they were sold.  Prior to moving to the Triangle area, Dianne served in various capacities internationally – youth ministry in Malaysia, teaching English in Cambodia, and international student ministry in Canada.  The Lord has blessed her with a petite stature, so that children are naturally drawn to her.  She is passionate about teaching children to have a greater knowledge of the Gospel and see them grow to be disciples of Jesus, who will make disciples of all nations. Whenever possible, Dianne enjoys exploring new places, trying new food, camping, and trail walking with her husband and friends.
