Jason and Kim both have a love for youth and missions. When God brought them together, they were excited to share similar passions for ministry, as well as their life together and were married in September 2005. Kim (Turner) Foster was born in the Bay Area in San Jose and raised in the Central Valley, in Turlock, so she’s excited to be home serving in ministry. Kim has an undergraduate degree from CSU Stanislaus in Business Administration and a graduate degree in Biblical Studies from Multnomah. Jason grew up in Salt Lake City and has a youth ministry degree from Trinity International University. The Fosters spent the first part of their life together deploying short–term youth mission teams overseas, so their experience prepared them well for CSM. They are currently making their home in the East Bay with their two children Stephanie and Patrick. When you ask Jason and Kim why they would want to come serve Jesus through CSM they both have no hesitation in saying, “It’s the perfect fit. We get to work with youth, youth workers, seasonal staff and apprentices which we believe is our calling and then on top of that we get to serve in the city among under–served people and be changed by Christ in the city”.
