About Kensington Church
Our mission is To see every[one] transformed and mobilized by Jesus.
FOR. The word gives a sense of posture. It’s an openhandedness and approach that encourages us all to pursue the best in one another. It’s a starting point for unity and togetherness. It’s an approach to each other and our city that gives way to new life, vision, and opportunity. Often times, the perception of the church is built on what it’s against, but we don’t think it has to be that way.
We imagine a local church who creates space for questions and doubts and vulnerability. We imagine a church for the skeptic, the brokenhearted, and the person who has walked away from faith. We imagine a church with leaders who consistently show up in the lives of the next generation to guide, shape, and reveal the awe and wonder of a God who loves them. We imagine a local church filled with people on mission to make the community a better place to live.
We imagine a church known for telling a bigger story of redemption, hope, and grace. It’s a church who is known throughout the city as being FOR Families, FOR the Community, and FOR the Individual.
Kensington is here FOR Traverse City.
We are FOR our Community. Traverse City is an area filled with life, art, beautiful landscapes, and vibrant local culture. It’s a city growing and moving, while simultaneously cultivating a place of rest for so many. But with any city, there are pockets of difficulty, hardship, and brokenness all around us. We believe the local church has the responsibility to be a part of helping to make the community a better place.
We imagine a church filled with people who consistently reach out to the broken parts of our city. We imagine leaders involved in the local schools helping to create a better future for children of all ages, demographics, and social backgrounds. We imagine a church that reaches out to the homeless in our community and partners with other organizations to give opportunities and a better a future. We imagine a church who sacrificially gives so that it’s resources can be poured back into the community that pours so much into us.
Kensington is here FOR our Community.
We are FOR Families. The family unit is at the center of any healthy and thriving community. We believe the local church has the responsibility to partner with and come along side of parents to ensure a better future for their children and teenagers.
We imagine a church filled with leaders who consistently show up in the lives of the next generation to guide, shape, and reveal the awe and wonder of a God who loves them.
