1137 St Charles Ave, New Orleans, LA 70130
Church of the King is all about people. From the first service in 1999 until today, our vision has remained the same – Reaching People, Building Lives.
Over the last sixteen years, the church has grown to three campuses throughout the Gulf Coast region, with over 7,000 people in weekend attendance. In 2006, amidst the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a divine opportunity emerged to purchase a landmark property on the famous St. Charles Avenue, right in the heart of New Orleans.
This landmark property is located at a critical crossroads in the city where wealth and poverty collide. Due to their many pressing physical needs, ministry to the under-resourced and underprivileged members of the community surrounding this property began almost immediately following its purchase. Today, our service to the community includes free medical, dental, and veterinary services, along with special outreaches conducted to help men and women caught in the web of human trafficking. We also organize a host of annual events designed to meet the physical needs of the community, such as back-to-school backpacks for children, Thanksgiving boxes, and special Christmas outreaches. In 2015 alone, Church of the King provided free health services to over 575 people and provided $531,100 in donations and services to the people of this great city.
New Orleans, one of the world’s most fascinating cities, is home to a truly eclectic blend of people, culture, music, and festivals. Over 50,000 students attend thirteen colleges and universities throughout the city. Diverse in every sense of the word, New Orleans is a melting pot of heritage and ideologies, all brought together by the nearly one million people who live within a 30-minute driving radius of downtown.
A research study conducted in 2010 revealed a remarkable statistic showing that 44% of the population claimed no religious affiliation – rocketing up from just 8% in the year 2000. This surprising shift came in the wake of Hurricane Katrina with the influx of new people moving to the city. Long known to be a place of moral decay where “anything goes,” New Orleans is a prime candidate for spiritual transformation. An opportunity of monumental proportions lies before us. The stage has been set. The time is now.
Church of the King’s St. Charles Campus embodies a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reach this historic city through a life-giving local church campus in the heart of the city. Renovating a building of this age and stature will require significant funding in order to bring it to modern-day standards. The financial need is $7,500,000. Please prayerfully consider joining in this city-transformational opportunity by doing two things:
Pray – Will you help carry the burden of this city in prayer? Imagine seeing New Orleans powerfully transformed by the love of Jesus Christ. Many people over the years have judged New Orleans and tried to write this city off and abandon her, even in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Yet God wants to transform and redeem this city. Please pray and help us carry both the vision and the burden of seeing New Orleans forever transformed.
