pGreetings! I am Kimberley, the newest addition to Going Beyond Ministries. I have known Priscilla since the days of our youth. We both attended a href=”http://www.ocbfchurch.org/” target=”_blank”Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship/a, which is shepherded by her daddy, Tony Evans. My partnering with Going Beyond Ministries has been a long time coming. I traveled with Priscilla a couple of times after she gave birth to her second child, JC, who is now 7, but at that time it was just a mutual desire spoken by both of us that “maybe one day….”brbrPrior to working with Going Beyond Ministries I lived in Delaware as an a href=”http://www.americorps.gov/” target=”_blank”AmeriCorps/a member, living in poverty to better understand the plight of the poor and directing a mentoring program at Kuumba academy in effort to break the cycle and eradicate poverty. Also, I worked for a great missions organization based out of Minnesota called YouthWorks! There we lead youth domestic mission trips. During those summers I lived in Chicago, Nashville and Benton Harbor. Having the opportunity to be a site and area director produced great friendships, but most importantly rekindled a deep love for the Lord and validated that my purpose is to show Christ’s love to ALL I come in contact with…rich or poor, black or white, believer or non-believer. /p
pI then transitioned into working for a href=”http://www.kirkfranklin.com/” target=”_blank”Kirk Franklin/a as an assistant, which was pretty stinkin’ awesome. The Lord totally humbled me and broke me down by making it clear that no ONE is greater than THE ONE…ever! After that, I was a teacher in Dallas for four wonderful years to amazing adolescents…yeah, I said it…AMAZING ADOLESCENTS. I know it may be hard for some of you to believe, especially those of you that work or live with middle schoolers, but it’s true. They are amazing. /p
p(Not only have my professions and passions taken me all over, but so did my childhood and path to college. I was born in Lexington and lived in Seattle, Oakland and Dallas and then spent four years in New Orleans at Dillard University where I received an athletic and academic scholarship…more athletic than academic.)brbr/p

p style=”text-align: left;”I am a newlywed. God answered my prayers for a God loving, thoughtful
and considerate husband. I was blessed with the full package of what I
needed and wanted in my husband. My husband also came with little
packages (that I call gifts) which whom I have the privilege to love and
mother. (Oh, and how could I forget my first-born Panchito Miguel. He
is my joy…my love…my Chihuahua!)brbrWell that’s about it. I am
thrilled to be a part of this great family and friendships. It is truly a
blessing to be a part of something bigger than myself and to partner
with a ministry that is solid and built upon Truth. God bless!/p
