The Body of Christ Ministries was established in 2004. Their focus is restoring lives through weekly meetings, seminars, conferences, printed educational material, television, radio and educational workshops. Their goal is to provide practical application of life changing truths, impart hope, strength and encouragement for every season in life. Then, train to give out the same to others who are in need.
The center is led by Dr. Kim Sorgent and her supportive husband John. They have been married for 35 years. Together they work as a team to bring the very best in all they provide to others. John carries much of the administrative role and whatever else needs to be done to keep things running smoothly. John has been a large support to the ministry and to those that are served through The Body of Christ Ministries. He is a treasure and blessing to all.
