Introducing Darlene Kong!
By Darlene KongJune 7, 2018
Hello! I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you all in the HCM International community. My name is Darlene Kong and in March I came on staff with HCM International as the Social Media Coordinator. I live in Columbus, Ohio with my husband, Linn, and three children. The story of how I got started with HCM International is totally a God story!
In February of this year, my husband and I were trying to figure out where the Lord wanted me to go next with work. I have had a lot of different types of jobs over the years. I was a missions mobilizer for Mexican missions in Tijuana, Mexico; I worked as an Adjunct Professor of Spanish at Ohio State; I have even worked at Starbucks! At this time, I had gone to see Maggie Rhine (many of you may know her!) and I told her all of my woes and desires…and the next day, she e-mailed me to make me aware of the position with HCM International as Social Media Coordinator. I read the job description and felt like I should apply for the job, and soon after, began working with HCM International.
Due to some shifts in the ministry needs, the board has approved me to take on the position of Director of Communications. In this position, I will continue to post to social media, as well as maintain the website content, send out e-mail newsletters, and make sure that we communicate well what is going on around the organization. We are also launching a Healing Care Caregiver Network Group on Facebook, so be on the lookout for that coming soon!
For the past few months, I have been incredibly blessed to create the posts for HCM International’s social media channels. I have enjoyed seeing what types of posts bless and encourage you all the most. Working in this position has truly been an extension of my personal spiritual journey and I am blessed to journey alongside of you all in this digital media space!
