CiJai Dickinson

Children Ministries Assistant

A native of the Northern Colorado mountains and a mother of three boys, my family and I have been a part of The Genesis Project since April of 2021. Before becoming a part of the GP family, I worked in a few administrative and office positions, and spent four years in the Midwest trying my hand at natural farming! After the loss of our second son in 2017, there was a time of despair and doubt, it shook my faith. GP, and the amazing family we have found, have been an integral part of my healing. In my spare time, I can be found in our backyard cross-stitching, or having a family game night with my amazing husband and two boys. In the summer, we enjoy campfires with smores, and we love spending time in the mountains with our Chocolate Lab, Piper. I am beyond thankful to God for leading me to the opportunity to serve our kids and their families. I learn so much from these kiddos every single time I see them. I pray to have the child-like faith that they have.
