Kimberly Otero was raised in a strong believing household and speaks often of her parents commitment to always instill godly values and character. Unlike most young people who did not come to knowledge of Yeshua until they had satisfied their flesh and sowed their wild oats, Kim has dedicated her life to serving the Messianic community. She was raised up in one of the oldest Messianic synagogues which was started in the early 1980s and even attended a Messianic Jewish day school, one of only three in the world at the time! Growing up in a Messianic congregation, and serving there even as a child, Kim has developed a relationship with the Lord that is altogether unique, and an blessing and witness to others, especially instilling hope to parents whose children were wayward.
As the years passed, Kim still had a burning desire to learn more about her Messiah and His Jewish context. Sensing the Lord’s direction, she went to college, graduating with a degree in Jewish Studies. Armed with her degree, Kim continued to be led of the Lord in her service to the community of God, leading the youth, sisterhood, bar and bat mitzvah students, dance teams, etc. God has prepared her for the next step in her service to the Kingdom of Heaven, supporting her husband David in the leadership and ministry of Tzur Yisrael (Rock of Israel) Messianic Congregation.
Kim is not Jewish by birth, but is immensely proud to represent her heritage casting her crowns before the Messiah of Israel.
