Kim Thompson comes to Paraclete with diverse skills, life experiences in ministry, and a love for people. From her home in Olympia, Washington, she serves as Paraclete’s head of human resources, hiring new staff and caring for personnel needs. She also mentors Christian women in Olympia and Roma Christians in Europe online.
Prior to joining Paraclete in 2020, she served as a missionary both overseas and in the United States. From 1998 to 2012, she served in Latvia. She married her husband, Bruce, in 2000 and they both served overseas together. After returning to the United States, they worked for a construction ministry from 2013 to 2016 from their RV. Then from 2016 to 2020, Kim led as U.S. director of Roma Bible Union.
Working now as a truck driver, Bruce has a heart for the working man, ministering to men who would never step foot in a church.
In her free time, Kim likes to quilt, cook, can and dehydrate food, read and talk with friends around the world.
