[Children’s Ministry Coordinator]
A heart for ministry was developed in Dawniqua at a young age, as her parents (Pastor Dwight and Joyce Linyear), saw fit to become the best stewards possible, by assisting her in honing her God-given gifts and talents at a young age, and ensured she was actively involved in her church and community. She has used her talents to glorify God, through teaching fitness classes, leading prayer, worship and women’s Bible Studies. Dawniqua has worked as a Group Exercise Instructor (Kickboxing/Pilates/Zumba), Personal Trainer, Nutrition Consultant, Speed and Conditioning Coach as well as a Child and Family Counselor.
As head of the A/V department I handle all aspects of sound and video setup, sound engineering, audio and video recording, and visual presentation.
I currently work at the University of Minnesota within the Recreation and Wellness department where I coordinate fitness and wellness programming. My general field was in athletics before making a change to campus recreation, which took me all over the country, but am happy to now reside in the great state of Minnesota. God blessed me with three awesome siblings and two wonderful parents that continue to support and guide me as I grow in my faith. I assist with service and stage setup as well as audio engineering, Usher, and I coordinate the Alpha program for Endurance Church.
I have been a fitness trainer in the Twin Cities area for over 3 decades and am passionate about helping people reach their fullest physical potential as well as being healthy in mind, body, and spirit. I am excited to work with the people of Endurance Church and the surrounding communities helping them to experience the connection between fitness and faith enabling them to Live Well and Finish Strong.
I’ve resided in Minnesota all of my life. I love the great outdoors, community festivals, meeting people and the Lord. The Endurance Church vision and mission for Outreach Ministry addresses the calling from the community of Brooklyn Park and the world. It is a privilege to help make the vision and mission come true as we grow the church and reach out to those in need.
