Rich and Maryanne Kruszewski are marketplace ministers and have been serving the Tucson community since 1997, volunteering as medical professionals to provide care for the working poor and medically underserved. From 1999 through 2006 they directed Solomon’s Porch Medical Outreach, a non-profit organization of dedicated medical professionals.
Their mission was to bridge the gap in the healthcare system; Solomon’s Porch was awarded a Daily Point of Light award on September 2, 2002, by the Points of Light Foundation in Washington, DC.
In 2003 they led the medical team on their first international mission to Kampala, Uganda, Africa, to provide medical care to orphan children whose parents were victims of AIDS. They were also instrumental in assisting local medical personnel in opening an inner city clinic.
In 2007 Rich and Maryanne created The Life Link Tucson, a non-profit organization with both a local and international mission, dedicated to fostering quality medical services. They have traveled to China, working with the government-sponsored Loving Hospital Medical Project. They have lectured and consulted extensively throughout China at urban and rural hospitals, as well as medical colleges and universities.
In November of 2010 they attended the Harvest Evangelism, International Transformation Conference in Honolulu, HI, and caught the vision for transforming cities and nations. For five days they heard testimonies of transformation happening in cities in the US and around the world.
Transformation starts in the marketplace. We are all ministers of the Gospel by simply praying and being a blessing to those around us. It can be on the job, or prayer-walking in your neighborhood. Change happens, lives are touched and the atmosphere changes.
To affectively transform a city there must be a unity of purpose in the Church, crossing denominational lines and going beyond the four walls of our church buildings. The goal of Transform Tucson is to spread the love of God to Tucson and unite Churches and ministires.
In June 2012 Rich and Maryanne were ordained Seinor Chaplains in the International Alliance of Chaplain Corps.
And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul; and not one of them claimed that anything belonging to him was his own, but all things were common property to them.
And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all. Acts 4:32-33 NAS
