About King of Kings

King of Kings is a vibrant family of faith. We use the term “family” to indicate the heart and spirit of this congregation as we gather in community, grow together and nurture one another in faith — and to indicate the importance we place on families worshiping, serving, and learning together. King of Kings has been blessed with a strong physical presence within the city of Woodbury as it sits atop Radio Drive; yet more importantly, God also calls and challenges us to be a witness in the world so that others may come to know and experience His love. 

Our Mission is simple, “Centered on God our mission is to feed physical hunger, spiritual hunger and our hunger to be in community.”  As a body of faith, we not only seek to address the effects of physical hunger both locally and globally, but our hunger to grow in faith and to be in community with other believers.

We believe that our journey of faith is an ongoing process of growth and mutual investment where people of all ages engage, support, and learn from one another.

We are excited for you to join the amazing staff at King of Kings and grow the mission for God’s glory.
