Kathy Passkiewicz

Mobilization Coordinator
Martha Project/Kaleid Director

Hometown: Grand Rapids, Michigan

College/ Experiences: Central Michigan University, Mt. Pleasant, MI. My first mission trip to Costa Rica I was told to “take a walk with Jesus”. Through that life changing journey I have led numerous teams to Costa Rica through 6:8 Ministries, led teams to help victims of Hurricane Katrina through Samaritan’s Purse and short term journeys to Africa with Overland Missions, Thailand with WAR International, and East Asia with Here to There Ministries. Intercessory Prayer has been key to hearing and obeying what God is showing me!

Passions: To help others “step out of the boat” and experience God in short term journeys and projects. I am passionate about street ministry and meeting new people. I love biking, swimming, reading, “taking a walk with Jesus”, and vanilla ice cream with hot fudge.

Greatest Moments in Traveling: Getting baptized in the jungle of Biajua, Costa Rica and climbing the steps of the Great Wall of China. Another incredible moment was meeting a woman named Connie in Shangombo, Zambia and realizing that God sent me there specifically for one particular woman, sharing God’s word, and seeing life changing transformation, then having that divine moment where I said, “Wow, God, you care this much about every single person that you sent me all the way across the world to share Matthew 6:25 with Connie and help her begin that personal relationship with you ......a defining moment in Africa.

The craziest thing I have ever eaten was a fried scorpion in East Asia......you gotta try one......they taste like chicken.....not really!
