In 2006, Molly sensed God’s calling to use her gifts and skills in a new way and the Spark Ministry was born! She wanted to provide a way for Christian women to take the love of Christ outside the church walls and to offer a 2-3 day Christ-focused experience of “relaxation and refreshment” for hurting women - and the Holy Spirit did the rest! Molly has seen first hand the blessings that God bestows on those who are willing to serve AND those who are ready to receive. “I believe, and have seen with my own eyes, that ‘people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.’ My heart’s desire is that Spark Ministry will be a vehicle for women to put love into action so that the saving grace of Jesus Christ will be welcomed and received.”
Molly and her husband, Johnny, were married in 1980, and live in Plano, TX, with their youngest daughter, Gracie, and their miniature Dachshund, Liberty. Their oldest daughter, Amy, and new "Son-in-Love," Lauren, recently married and live in Dallas. Molly and Johnny's "Blind-Side" daughter, Dora, lives in Cincinnati with her husband, Steven, and their baby daughter, Joy. Both Amy and Dora have served on a Spark Mission Trip; and Gracie can't wait until she is old enough to go!!! The Breitenfeld's are active members of ParkwayHills Baptist Church in Plano. Molly enjoys vacationing at the beach, travel, and having lots of fun! Her calling from Christ is to serve people and to reflect the kindness He has demonstrated in her own life and in the lives of her family and friends.
Pastor Sam Dennis, ParkwayHills Baptist Church, Plano TX
It has been my joy to be Molly Breitenfeld’s pastor for the past 14 years and to experience her giftedness as an implementer, planner, and supporter of the local church and its ministry. As an innovative leader, she has creatively led our church - particularly our students and women - on countless mission trips, ministry opportunities, and renewal retreats, in settings and places as far away as Washington DC and New York to as near as South Dallas. To this end I commend both she and the Spark Ministry to you without reservation. For, whether looking to re-ignite a flame or to set one burning anew, I believe that God has anointed this woman to help.
