Staff Spotlight - Marne Hult

Marne Hult, Gift Planning Officer in the Watertown & Brookings areas of Eastern SD.


She joined our staff in 2016.  Her family includes her husband, 2 sons, 1 daughter in law, 1 grandson (+ 1 on the way), a daughter in heaven and 1 dog.    

One of Marne’s favorite parts of being a gift planning officer is the relationships she builds with people throughout her community, while helping them direct their gifts the way they want them to be used.  Marne said she felt a calling from God to work at CCFESD and she couldn’t be more thankful for this life giving ministry.
