Bethel Bible Village Speaker Featured At Rotary Club Of Chattanooga Hamilton Place

Monday, September 18, 2017

Kim Shumpert, director of Development for Bethel Bible Village, spoke to the Rotary Club of Chattanooga Hamilton Place this week.  She addressed Bethel’s team, services, mission and impact – "providing Christ-centered healing and hope until no child remains in crisis."  

"The 'safety-net' programs and services Bethel provides to children and families can be an important resource to employers and community leaders," officials said.
Over her career, Ms. Shumpert has worked in a variety of roles in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.

Her experience has spanned working through complex policy and organizational issues in government, education, private industry and family services. She returned to her hometown of Chattanooga in the spring of 2016 and began last fall as the director of Development for Bethel Bible Village. She uses her experience in development, fundraising, organizational capacity building and community involvement to advance Bethel’s mission.
Ms. Shumpert believes that affecting change in a community is about building relationships that equip people to improve their lives and the lives of others through offering meaningful experiences. This philosophy drives her personal and professional pursuits. She and her husband Brad and their two daughters live in Signal Mountain and attend Clear Creek Church.
