LIVING OUT THE MISSION
Every[one] Capital Campaign
This adventure, called Every[one], is a capital campaign that requires significant financial resources to fulfill our mission to see every[one] transformed and mobilized by Jesus. To accomplish big-time Kingdom movements, we rely on partners making commitments over and above their current level of giving.
Start up, step up, or stay in?
So far, 2,974 households have committed almost $22 million to seeing our mission fulfilled. In order to accomplish all the projects in this campaign, it takes significant financial resources from our entire church – the nearly 15,000 people who attend Kensington regularly. As we approach the final year of this three-year campaign, we are asking everyone to prayerfully consider investing in the work of God through Kensington.
The Kensington Fund is where it’s needed most. This is where your tithes and offerings go—supporting Christ’s church here and around the world. It’s the fund that allows us to reach people with the message of Jesus through our weekend services, arts & music, events, kids & student ministries, and global & local outreach.
A robust Kensington Fund helps us energize and animate everything we do. Please give to this fund first, then consider donations to other Kensington ministries as “over and above” giving.GIVE NOW

There’s no better investment in the world than to give back what Jesus gave us.
Whole 90 - living on 90% for 90 days
The challenge is simple: give back to God a percentage of your income for 90 consecutive days. But here’s the twist—it’s risk-free! We strongly believe that this is the heart of God. So much so that if you try this God-centered money management approach for 90 days and don’t like it, we’ll give you your contributions back, no questions asked.
God has given Kensington a passion for building His Kingdom “here” and “there.” To do this we need to break out of the four walls and reach the four corners of the world. Take a risk and experience what it means to be His hands and feet to the nations. Join a Kensington Short-Term Trips team and live out your faith by walking alongside an indigenous leader to help in serving their own people.
$38 a month will transform a child's life with food, shelter, medical care and education. The kids in India, Kenya and Nepal are a part of our Kensington family that we’ve adopted over the years by devoting time, energy and resources and prayers to give people hope that only comes from Jesus. To date, over 1,000 kids have been sponsored through No Child.
Hope Water Project
Ultimately, clean water provides hope for a new future. Water is our most basic and vital need in life. Without it, nothing can happen. Nothing can grow. But with it, everything changes. Clean water quenches thirst — but it also restores health. With access to clean water, life can be given back to a community.
The world needs effective, high impact leaders with hands-on experience. Our church-based internship program provides a total immersion environment for men and women to develop skills and be challenged. With hard core on-the-job training and no monkey business. Okay, a little monkey business. These home-grown leaders are educated, empowered and equipped to make a difference – locally and globally – in churches, missions, governments and workplaces. With a primary focus on leadership development, Kensington interns are given real-world responsibilities for the day-to-day operation of their specific ministry. The program also offers the experience, training, and accountability to transform participants into more spiritually mature, Christ-centered leaders. After going through a rigorous application process, our gifted interns bring real benefit to Kensington. But our main desire is that they grow holistically – to sharpen job skills, build character, and mature in their faith. They will be trained by our best and mentored by our brightest, not only vocationally, but theologically in multiple ministry areas.
WAYS TO GIVE
Giving is made easier through our new 'Kensington Church' app. Download the app to give in less than 10 seconds.
Easiest of all! Giving online is the fastest and most preferred way to give at Kensington. In fact, more than 70% of our congregation gives this way. Set up a one-time gift or recurring gift.
You can drop a check in the offering or mail a check to 'Kensington Church, Attn: Finance, 1825 E Square Lake Road, Troy, MI 48085'. All giving will be designated to the Kensington Fund unless you tell us otherwise.
Old school still works. The offering pouch is passed around during services for you to drop your cash into (or coins, we'll take those too). Be sure to include your name and contact info for tax purposes.
You can give through your retirement plans, trusts, wills, estates, and life insurance. Ever thought of tithing 10% of your life insurance to leave a legacy for God’s Kingdom? Contact us for more information.
This “double tax advantage” for giving allows you to avoid capital gains tax by transferring appreciated securities instead of selling or liquidating before you give. And you get a charitable deduction for the full value of the stock for tax purposes. Contact us for more information.
You can donate your used vehicle, real estate, motorcycle, jewelry, or old tech (even a lottery ticket!). Contact us to give your assets.
Have a $9.34 balance remaining on a gift card? Or did you receive a gift card to a store or restaurant that you'll never go to? We accept all gift cards, and you get the amount as a tax deduction on your taxes. Contact us to give a gift card.
