Children’s Ministries Director: Kim Smith
Meet Kim Smith, DFMC’s Children’s Ministries Director. Kim establishes vision for Children’s Ministries, recruits and trains volunteers, schedules programming and special events, plans and directs children’s outreach events such as our annual summer Day Camp, and is involved herself, each Sunday, directly teaching and leading kids in a variety of ways. Kim has received Associate Degrees in both Liberal Arts and Nursing through Henry Ford Community College, and has just completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing at Eastern Michigan University. She is a Registered Nurse and also works part-time at St. Mary Mercy Hospital in Livonia. Kim is a mom who LOVES kids and started out teaching Sunday School to preschoolers 25 years ago. Since then, she has led kids annually through special events, including Christmas and Easter programs. She uses her creative expression to teach kids about God, and has experience with writing an original children’s Christmas musical, performed by an entire cast of kids. She has co-directed DFMC’s Day Camp/Vacation Bible School for 2 years, then directed it for the last 22 years. She has been on DFMC’s Worship Team, as their keyboardist, for 15 years, until she was asked to lead in her current position as Children’s Ministries Director. During the school year, for the past 15 years, Kim has taught music and conducted a local Children’s Recorder Band through Home Educators Music Association. She is also a class room helper and substitute teacher to elementary age kids with Harbor Homeschool. She is married to her husband, Mike, has two daughters, Hannah, 25, and Lindsay, 22, and a Siberian Husky, Allie. Kim’s passion is for kids everywhere to know God. She desires every single child to go to bed at night feeling safe, knowing they can talk to God, and He will talk to them. She puts great effort into helping kids come to know the Lord Jesus Christ personally, develop Godly character, and leads them to help others develop the same. Kim loves outdoor recreation and enjoys spending her time hiking, biking, and in the winter time, snowshoeing with her dog, Allie. She loves to write songs, lead worship (especially in creative ways), hang out with kids, and pray. Kim hopes one day to travel overseas to visit Europe and Israel, write a children’s book, and see the Redwood trees in California.
