Kim Ball has a heart for helping women find their purpose in Christ. She has served on staff at Getwell Church in Southaven for nearly six years, beginning first in Children’s Ministry. While serving in that role, Kim felt God calling her to step up, put her passions to work, and minister to the women of Getwell Church and the DeSoto County area. That calling, and God’s leading, resulted in a new women’s ministry at Getwell Church - Getwell Women. Kim cherishes her role as Director of that ministry, which allows her to walk alongside women as they take their next steps toward the heart of Christ. Kim’s ultimate desire is for women from all walks of life and church background to worship, learn and serve together – which is exactly why Kim is passionate about gatHER.
