Kim Kushner Dominguez serves in both regional and local ministry projects in Latin America and the Caribbean for American Baptist International Ministries. Kim has been invited by partners in Latin America and the Caribbean to serve as coordinator of a regional assessment of leadership development through theological education.
Kim’s assessment project currently has her working with several partner ministries in Cuba. Given the rapid pace of church growth in Cuba, assessment of leadership development for new and growing churches and conventions is essential. Because of the complexity of residency permits in Cuba, Kim’s ministry base is currently Valley Forge, PA and while she travels back and forth to Cuba.
Prior to serving in partnership with Cuban Baptist partners, Kim lived and served in El Salvador where she partnered with the Baptist Federation of El Salvador (FEBES).
In addition to completion of completing a leadership assessment of strengths, challenges, and areas for growth in leadership development within the unique Salvadoran context, Kim also supported work of local ministries. Her efforts were primarily focused on FEBES’ initiatives of empowering youth and women through leadership development. She also assisted churches in exploring economic development and sustainability solutions for social outreach ministries. Finally, Kim provided support to short-term volunteers from the US and Canada who came to serve with FEBES ministries.
