My name is Abbey Nishimoto and I am so excited about joining the Kingdom Causes Bellflower team. I grew up in the Bellflower area and am passionate about seeing believers get involved in community development.
My husband, Andrew, and I just moved back to Bellflower after spending the last few years in the snowy land of Warsaw, Indiana. We attended Grace College where we were both involved in various ministries and leadership opportunities. Now Andrew is the new youth pastor at Bethany CRC, and I'm working here at Kingdom Causes!
I've already had a great few days with the staff here. It was awesome to see 13 people come together last night to eat lunch with some of our neighbors at the century inn. We're looking forward to the barbeque there next week as well!
My main focus at KC will be on the Oak Street neighborhood, specially attempting to coordinate a teen center. We'd love to have a safe place for teens to learn, grow, and interact with with volunteers from the church of Bellflower! If you are interested in ministry with teens-please don't hesitate to contact me! We'll need people from all sorts of backgrounds with different talents in order to make this initiative a success!
I'm looking forward to interacting with lots of you over the next few months!
P.S. The pic is from me and Andrew's favorite SoCal spot-Disneyland!
