Kimberly Truesdell

Kim effectively balances two part-time ministries at First Wayne Street as both Director of Youth Ministry and Communications Coordinator.

A Cincinnati native, Kim moved to Fort Wayne to work at the Journal Gazette. She is an editor and writer, penning the popular column “The Dish.”  She and her husband, Mark, have two rambunctious boys – Miles and Silas – and an over-enthusiastic Siberian Husky, Denali. Kim is an avid runner and workout enthusiast and through her own weight-loss journey, she found a calling to help others get healthy. For the past four years, she has worked as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer, currently serving as LiveStrong coordinator at the Renaissance Pointe YMCA. Kim is an active volunteer with Girls on the Run and has also been a tutor through Study Connection.
