Kim Brooks

Children's Ministry Director

Brief description of what you do at SCBC:
I am the Children’s Ministry Director for infants through 5th grade. I adore children and families and am so thankful for the opportunity to serve the precious children and families at Santa Cruz Bible Church. I work with the children’s ministry team to facilitate our Sunday school programs, work alongside and offer support to our amazing volunteers, plan and help children’s and family events, and inform families of upcoming activities and events via email, newsletters, and flyers.

What was your first car?
My fist car was a pink and white Ford Falcon. It was an old clunker with no heat or AC and it overheated all the time but it was cute and it was my first car – and I loved it!

Where’s your favorite spot in Santa Cruz county?
I love taking walks along the cliffs or to Walton Lighthouse at Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor; looking out at the ocean always reminds me that we have an awesome creator, it amazes me!

Favorite place to eat in Santa Cruz?
Bittersweet Bistro or Manuels, both in Aptos.

What are your top 3 favorite movies?
Big (with Tom Hanks), My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

What’s your hidden talent or a fun fact about you?
Although my voice isn’t what it once was, I love to sing! My past includes being on worship teams, being part of a Christian band and I’ve had the opportunity to sing at a few recording studios on some friends worship albums. Praising the Lord in song is awesome!

What was your first paying job?
It was a paper route for the Santa Cruz Sentinel when I was 10.

Favorite food?
Potatoes.

Favorite quote?
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

Hometown?
Santa Cruz, CA. Although I was born in Redwood City, CA, I’ve lived here since I was 2.

Favorite book?
Besides the Bible, one of my favorite books is The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

What would your ideal day off look like?
I would sleep in a bit, enjoy a great cup of coffee or two in the morning, take a walk to the lighthouse, get a good massage, go out to dinner to Bittersweet Bistro with my family and then we would go home and watch a great comedy and laugh until we cried, then we’d have a scoop of ice cream. That would be a great day!
