On July 5, 2010, Kathy established Foot of the Cross Ministries. The ministry’s mission is to lift up the name of Jesus Christ, through the ministry of dance and is an outreach ministry to victims of violence. The ministry’s heart is to lead the unsaved to Christ, to minister to individuals who have been victims of physical, verbal, and emotional abuse as well as those who have been victims of domestic violence by using dance as communication to encourage, uplift, heal and to reassure them that God loves them and has a plan for their life. Her desire is to encourage others through her own experience as a domestic violence survivor. This ministry also has an online store; under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Kathy designs praise & worship instruments, garments for adults and children. She is author of the Ebook "Basic Biblical Colors Guide".
