We are so excited to join with KCC in their search for a Co-Lead Pastor (Administration & Development). God has been doing AMAZING things to prepare the soil for this next-level leader to join the team at KCC. This church has a rich history of Kingdom adventure and the path leading to the hire of this position is one which has been an obviously directed one towards the opportunity today as well as the great days ahead!

KCC has been seeking God’s will passionately and they are stepping out in faith-filled excitement to move to a Co-Pastor model. This person will lock arms with their current Lead Pastor, Dave Johnson, complementing him and working alongside him to lead the KCC family into the future! We just couldn’t be more excited to discover who this leader will be! Great days ahead.


Church Description *

KCC started in 1991 as a ‘mission’ to the local community—the ‘un-churched and the over-churched’. They used the arts and practical teaching to attract those who would not attend a ‘traditional’ church. They used drama, secular music, and targeting ‘felt needs’ to help people feel welcome, then would encourage them to go deeper in Small Groups or a Midweek Service. KCC met in various auditoriums around town over the first 10 years.

Pastor Dave Johnson was hired in 2000 as a ‘Co-Pastor’, over Small Groups, Children and Youth Ministries and Discipleship. Since that time, KCC has grappled with their identity, and have changed from a ‘Seeker-Targeted’ church to a ‘Seeker-Sensitive, Transformation Targeted’ church.

In 2015, Pastor Dave proposed a new Mission, having to do with John 10:10, in response to a ‘word’ he believed to be from God: “KCC’s Mission is to be a community of people who experience Full Life, through faith in Jesus Christ.” The KCC team and congregation has rallied around this heartbeat and now they are seeking the last missing piece of their leadership team in order to move forward fully on mission.
