Our Mission & Vision for Students and Families

Kingdom’s Student ministry exists to lock arm and arm with the family and local church body to help parents “Train their children in the way they should go.” To be a support and encouragement to parents as they fulfill Deuteronomy 6:4-9, “Here O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your strength. These words which I am commanding you today are to be on your hearts. Teach them diligently to your sons; talk of them when you sit in your houses and when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up. They are to be bound as signs on your hands and frontlets on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your houses and on your gates.”


Meet Our Team

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ.
