Dr David Kim is a physician, co-founder and currently CEO of Beacon Christian Community Health Center, which missionally serves an underserved, diverse population in Staten Island, New York City. He has a heart for “bringing Jesus into the exam room” and has spent many years hosting, teaching, training and mentoring students, residents and fellow medical colleagues in hopes of raising a new generation of health professionals who will practically live out their faith in their work and life. Beacon has lived out its Jeremiah 29:7 commitment to “shalom” for its community by taking the lead locally and regionally in handling such crises as H1N1, Superstorm Sandy, and most recently, COVID-19 and the immigrant crisis in NYC.
Beacon offers, in the backdrop of the unique international and socioeconomic mission field of New York City, targeted student and resident rotations which combine comprehensive clinical and community experiences with teaching sessions which offer a didactic, Scripture-centric approach to healthcare.
