Description of webinar:
Spiritual formation integration is a foundational element of a healthy and thriving ministry, but it is often one of the most neglected. In this workshop, we will look at spiritual formation not only as a personal discipline and practice, but how as ministry leaders, we can integrate spiritually formative practices across our ministry context, thereby strengthening the souls of ourselves, our staff members, ministry partners, donors, and ministry participants.
Kim Kargbo has lived and worked nearly half of her life in Sierra Leone, West Africa, being raised there by missionary parents and serving as a missionary in various capacities during her adult life. From 1990-1993, Kim initiated an NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) called Community Health Evangelism promoting health education and disease prevention strategies in the rural northern province of Sierra Leone. From 1998-2002, Kim worked with World Hope International developing and managing a rehabilitation program for amputees following the decade-long civil war. She had an additional 4 years of experience in the US in public health program development and management and served as a health training consultant for the United States Peace Corps for 2 years. In 2009, Kim founded Accessible Hope International, a ministry dedicated to the wholistic discipleship of people with disabilities. It began as a ministry to women in Sierra Leone, and in 2016 began to equip the global church on a theology of disability in order to shift the worldview and actions of the Church regarding the hidden people living with disability in their communities. Kim is compelled in ministry by the Voice behind her and the faces before her, who need to hear the Gospel in a way that is meaningful to them. Kim has 3 grown children and currently lives in Memphis, TN.
