Dottie was born and raised in the Chicago area and came to know the Lord at an early age.After marrying her husband Jack Connor, they joined New Tribes Mission and taught language and linguistics to missionary candidates (1960-70). For one year, they served with The Navigators in Columbus, Ohio (1971-72), spearheading a couples’ ministry. Then the family of six traveled to the Philippines where they were involved in evangelism and church planting to an unreached tribe (1972-77).After entrusting the fledgling church of Tagbanwa believers to national missionaries, they returned to the States where Jack pursued further training at Dallas Theological Seminary.The Lord took Jack home to Himself through an illness in 1984. During the family’s time in Dallas, Dottie worked at CAM International (1977-79), was secretary to Howard Hendricks (1979-80), and executive secretary to then-President Dr. John F. Walvoord (1980-85).Dottie then served as Dean of Women at Dallas Seminary from July 1985-December 1993.During that time the ministry of Gracestoration was founded as a result of her discipling ministry to students and couples.She has authored the “Grace For the Rest of Your Life” discipleship notebook. Dottie began a new chapter in her life and ministry in 1992 when she met Bob Bingham, also a widower with the same focus in ministry.
