Let's Step Up for CK Connections  & UPLIFT San Diego!

Thank you for joining my efforts to raise funds for two of my favorite nonprofits! CK Connections and UPLIFT exist to make transformative impact in San Diego.I believe in both organizations wholeheartedly. I serve as Co-director of CK Connections & Board Member for UPLIFT. More importantly, I have witnessed the incredible impact these groups have on those they serve.

 Here are links to the websites so you can learn more:

CK Connections - CRU San

Co-Founders, Pastor Thomas L. & Dr. Ethel E. Sims have been serving together in several multi-faceted roles in Faith-Based Leadership along with their expertise in Community Development, Technology and Real Estate for over 30 years.

Their involvement in Ministry platforms and Marketplace venues consist of linking resources to expand positive opportunities for children, family and communities in such a way that joint efforts, projects and partnerships will fulfill the Great Commission in Kingdom Building.

The Sims answered their calling in ministry in 1995 and began their pastorate assignment and church planting at Christ CornerStone Church in 2000 in the Greater Golden Hill community.

Since that time, the church entity and its existing affiliation as KFAMM - Koenonia Family Ambassadors Ministry-Missions have operated in several capacities to continue their calling, mission-driven assignments and church-based efforts.

Pathway Vision: Say YES! Mission: Building Better Lives, Families and Communities.
