About KIROS Tacoma
Welcome to KIROS Tacoma. We encourage and support Christian business people in their marketplace ministries. We welcome you and your participation in the transformation of our workplaces through faith. We look forward to connecting with you at the next breakfast meeting.
KIROS Tacoma was founded in 2008, by John Pfaff (and his wife, Cosette, along with a dozen other faithful team members). The inspiration to start KIROS in Tacoma came after john attended a Seattle KIROS breakfast in early 2008 and realized that God was calling him to help make this available to Christian business people in Tacoma and the South Sound region.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more about the Tacoma Chapter, please contact the Tacoma Chapter head at firstname.lastname@example.org.
