Meet our staff

  • Kim grew up in Buffalo, New York but moved south to escape the cold as soon as she could. She has lived in South Central Texas for over 20 years. For the last five years, Kim has served as the Associate Pastor of Central Presbyterian Church (CPC) in downtown Austin. Kim began serving CPC as a volunteer in 2010 when she moved to Austin with daughter Samantha (Sam) to begin seminary. In 2012, Kim began The Central Mission, a social service and ministry program for people who are experiencing homelessness and living on a limited income. While serving at CPC, Kim has had many exciting opportunities including leading a worship service for wholeness and healing for Her Excellency Joyce Banda who at the time was the president of Malawi.


    Before attending seminary, Kim worked as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with at risk youth and their families through Communities in Schools of San Antonio. She also served as the Youth Director of Pipe Creek Presbyterian Church in Pipe Creek, Texas for over a decade. While Kim's ministries have expanded, being with young people is still one of her greatest joys!


    In 2017, Kim married her one sweet love, Nick Smith-Stanley. They have Sam, who is a Junior at the University of North Texas where she is a film major and Luke an 8th grader at Canyon Vista Middle school. They are also the proud parents of two cats and two dogs, Kittie, Andy, Lillie and Martha.


    Kim loves to laugh and her favorite pastime is hiking and being in the great outdoors. She loves spending time with her family and playing with her dogs. She loves all kinds of books but has a particular love for memoirs and Harry Potter.


    Kim's greatest desire for the church, is that what binds us together will be greater than anything that seeks to tear us apart. Her prayer is that the church might be a place where all people, from diverse and rich backgrounds, will feel welcomed, included and loved.

  • Jeremy grew up just a little north of here in Dallas, Texas. Through school and Youth productions at church, Jeremy developed a real love of theatre and making other people smile through stand-up comedy, which he still does today, just not as often. Jeremy also found a love of service during his time as a boy scout in troop 718 where he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout a few hours before his 18th birthday. Once he graduated high school he left the warmth of Texas and moved to Illinois to go to school at Columbia College Chicago. Jeremy worked various jobs such as; a valet, Mayor Fudge at a candy store (and yes that was his official job title), and a multitude of camp counselor positions, where his love of working with youth began.

     

    After college, Jeremy became a Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) through the PC(USA) and worked as a missionary in Atlanta. As a YAV he became a pastoral intern for Mercy Community Church, a small church for folks struggling with poverty, homelessness, and mental health issues. Jeremy performed many tasks as an intern; prepping the day's meals, participating and sometimes leading Bible studies or Recovery meetings, reflecting with youth groups that came through the doors and so much more. He says his most important role was to be a friend and confidant to all who walked through Mercy’s doors. It was in his time working in Atlanta where Jeremy grew deeper in his faith, and found where God was calling him.


    Jeremy is a self-proclaimed mountain man and loves exploring nature through hiking, bouldering, or white water rafting. He is an avid movie buff, with his favorite genre being horror or dramedy. Jeremy can often be found cooking in the kitchen, as creating a meal is his favorite way to relax and gather people around the table.

    Jeremy’s greatest desire for our youth is for each and every one to know that they are loved and a child of God.

She has been in the Austin area since 1993 when she moved from her home state of Nevada to attend the University of Texas and earned her degree in piano pedagogy in 1995. That year she also married her husband of 22 years, Jeff, and they have two girls: Gabi is a Junior at Round Rock High School and Madi is a 7th grader at Walsh Middle School.
