    • Community Presence: We are a lighthouse placed in a broader community, guiding those around us toward his love, hope, and healing.

    • Family Faith: We believe in partnering with parents to equip the next generation with faith that lasts.
    • Shaping Tomorrow: We embrace the future, bravely letting go of the things we love in order to reach the people and serve the God we love even more.
    • Connection: We will choose meaningful relationships over isolation, because life and faith are richest when we are together.

Opportunity to Use My Abilities for God

“At KCU I was able to learn under the guidance of the best ministry professors and administrators. KCU gave me
my first opportunity to use my abilities for God. KCU gave me an opportunity to excel athletically, artistically, and
academically. But most of all, when I look back on my time at KCU, I will remember the people. I will remember the
smiles, I will remember the laughs my friends and I shared. KCU is a family and one I am very proud to be in.”

Cody Sabol, Class of 2017
