Welcome to Kensington! I’m Joel Leipprandt, the Lead Pastor of the Traverse City campus. My wife’s name is Kelly and we have three beautiful kids: Jude, Calvin, and Violet. We love to spend time together as a family, have fun, take nature walks, ride dirt bikes, hang out at the beach, and play in the woods. We’re also incredibly excited to lead, serve, and participate in the mission of Jesus here in northern Michigan. We’re so thrilled to be part of the Kensington movement. We believe that as followers of Christ, we are being called into community with one another, in order to have an influence and make an impact in the community around us. Our hope is to see every[one] transformed and mobilized by Jesus. We value authenticity and we’re all about being transparent about the ways God is transforming us (in real-time). Our passion is to see every single person find their God-given purpose and calling in life. We’re pretty down-to-earth, but we care deeply about following Jesus. Our hope is that you’ll join us in this movement. We love what God is already doing among us in northern Michigan and we can’t wait to see what’s to come! We hope to see you soon.
