A Woman with Gifted Hands
By Shirley Brosius
With Gifted Hands, Dustee Hullinger reaches out to people
traumatized by life's experiences. The art and evangelistic
program serves about 200 people each week at shelters, HIV/AIDS
residences, community centers and churches in New York City.
Volunteer artists offer workshops such as jewelry making,
painting, cooking, drawing and woodworking.
"I have the God-given ability to work with people who have 99
percent going against them, find the one percent they have going
for them and begin to work forward from that point," Dustee
says. "I do not give up easily, and I see the best in everyone."
During the last eleven years, Dustee has produced 33 programs,
including courses on character and life skills development,
which are offered at 17 locations. Married and the mother of
two, Dustee serves on the compassionate ministry staff of The
Lamb's Church of the Nazarene in Times Square.
Born in North Dakota, Dustee grew up in Michigan. At age 13, she
dedicated her life to God at a youth camp service, and mission
trips challenged her. She dreamed of becoming a missionary or an
archeologist—any profession that would facilitate traveling. God
opened the door for her to become a flight attendant.
Then in 1993 doctors recommended Dustee give up her work due to
injuries that caused back pain. A Make a Difference in Your
World conference motivated her to work with the homeless, even
though at that time she wondered what she could possibly have in
common with them.
A cross-country move to New York City led Dustee to The Lamb's
Church, where she told homeless men of God's love as she soaked
their feet. Her desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus grew,
and she developed an art and design class for young mothers at a
As she taught in the inner city, Dustee noticed results. Wounded
people developed self esteem. Battered women found community.
And leaders emerged from those who had felt disempowered. Dustee
solicited funding to offer art programs in the shelter system.
Dustee eventually joined the church's staff. Through the
compassionate ministry, she has offered art and socio-drama
workshops and invited the homeless and needy to join singing
groups. She married Jim Hullinger, financial administrator of
the church, and together they developed Pathway to Wholeness, a
discipleship program for men.
Although at times Dustee felt as though she walked into a field
of landmines as she worked with dysfunctional people, she
persevered and became a woman with a mission—to help those who
could not help themselves. Rather than becoming a missionary to
Africa, as she had once dreamed, Dustee found her mission field
in the concrete jungle of New York City.
According to Dustee, worship services and art programs held at
shelters develop relationships, plant seeds and create a bridge
to connect people to Christianity.
"If we don't step out and start these type of outreaches, people
in these situations will never find the Lord," she says. "They
are so fractured by life complexities. They are guilt ridden and
feel unworthy to step into a church. They live in a survival
God continues to give Dustee many opportunities to share about
her work, and her ministry has invested seed money to start 13
programs in Africa.
With a patience level far above the norm, Dustee continues to
fulfill Jesus' directive in Matthew 10:42: If anyone gives even
a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my
disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his
reward. And she motivates others to start similar programs. You
