Children's Ministry Coordinator
Kim was born in Southern California, but her family soon moved to Dunlap, IL where she lived
until she was 20. She did not grow up in a Christian home and didn’t have any experience with
“religion” until she was 12 years old. At this time, she was baptized into the Seventh Day
Adventist church, but did not understand what a true relationship with Jesus Christ really
In 1990, Kim relocated to southern California where she met her husband, Dean. They have
been married for 28 years and have 8 children. It was in the year 2000, that Kim and her family
began attending a Bible-teaching church and she began to fully understand the sin nature that
kept her from a relationship with God. She accepted Jesus as her savior that year and both she
and her husband were baptized together. For the next 21 years, they worked and raised their
family in their home church in Reseda, CA.
In 2021, Kim’s family decided it was time to move from California, leaving their church, jobs,
and some of their older kids behind, and relocate to Bixby, OK. Taking a huge step of faith and
leaving their home of 20 years was difficult, but looking back, it’s clear how God orchestrated
details, removed obstacles, and opened doors. Kim feels truly blessed to see how God has
answered prayer and allowed for new opportunities throughout the last couple of years.
Now, Kim stays very busy by managing her home, homeschooling her youngest 5 kids, and
chasing after 2 crazy dogs and 11 chickens. She has spent the last 20 years serving or working
on staff in some aspect of Children’s Ministry and is grateful that she can continue to do so with
TBC-Kids. Kim is excited to see what great things God will do in this growing, vital ministry and
within the families at Tulsa Bible Church.
