Katie Gordiyenko

Worship Intern

My Motivation

My desire is to create an environment of worship where people can experience God for themselves. Simply put, I want to see lives transformed, and often it's through worship that his presence becomes known.

My Background

I grew up in Cary, Illinois and graduated high school in 2020. I volunteered on the worship team for Sunday services and youth ministry at the church I grew up in for 4 years before joining The Bridge staff in September of 2021.

My Spiritual Journey

I accepted Jesus at the age of 10 during a concert. Although I was baptized at a young age, I lived the majority of my childhood far from God. I knew about him, yet never opened my Bible to get to know him. Through my church's high school ministry, I learned what it meant to walk with Jesus on a day-to-day basis and finally began to understand his love for me. As I began serving in worship ministry, I grew in my love for the church, Jesus as my savior, and my desire to glorify him with my life. 

One More Thing

I speak fluent Russian!
