When Kensington opened its doors - actually the doors of a rented school cafeteria - we had no idea what to expect. But when 463 people showed up, we knew God was working, and at a faster pace than our core team of 40 crazies ever imagined. As we grew, places all over Oakland County were transformed into a "portable church." We gathered in homes, coffee shops, schools, warehouses and office buildings to share how God was transforming lives.
During 25 years of trial and error, God has taught us what matters most. We filter every program, budget, and proposal through this grid. If something won't help us love unconditionally, build community, and model generosity, we don't do it.
Starting Point is a small book all about Kensington, and is available here, if you would like to learn more.
