2023 Summer Skyline
Meet New Director of Sports Ministry Tim, & New Intern Alison
After interning with The Hope Center for several years, THC was elated to welcome Timothy “Tim” Lumpkin as the newest member of our full-time staff this summer. Due to his passion for serving others, playing sports and pouring into the next generation, this is Tim’s dream job. He is excited about seeing the students grow personally and spiritually in the same way he witnessed THC play such a monumental role in his own growth and development. He is also excited about getting students enrolled in local sports tournaments and continuing to participate in THC’s Community Outreach Events. Tim would like to invite YOU to Come & See the work God is doing through children, youth and families on the East Side of Kansas City. Once you have done so, you will quickly understand why he loves it here!
As a recent graduate of Park University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work, Allison is looking forward to hearing our students' questions and having solid conversations with them. Long-term, Allison has aspirations of providing mental health and counseling services within communities similar to ours, where it is not always easily accessible. Allison had the pleasure of accompanying our Hope Center students to Kids Across America Sports Camp this summer as a Kaleo. She enjoyed having an opportunity to begin bonding with several of the students by getting to know their personalities. Allison loves serving others and comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and student leadership experiences. She looks forward to participating in the groundbreaking & foundational work God is doing through The Hope Center.
