Something awesome happens when Kensington men get together. Men need other men to walk alongside them, and everyone benefits when a man becomes a Godly man. This doesn’t happen with good intentions, it happens when men choose to commit.

Group Leaders

Is God prompting you to lead a group? Email [email protected] with questions or start the process below.

Group leaders are in the business of developing relationships with God and with others. As believers we value imitating Jesus and His leadership style. We have gathered resources to help you lean into Jesus’ teachings, encourage your group and equip you to lead well.


Most frequent questions and answers

Relationships take time to build. At Kensington, we create the space and time for these relationships to take root through small groups. Groups gather to talk about their faith, as well as the joys and hurts of life. Kensington small groups meet in a variety of locations and virtually to study the Bible or follow a topic-based curriculum. Groups are a great opportunity to pursue God and connect with others on a similar journey. God designed us to live in community!

Kensington small groups are listed online. You can filter groups by campus, day of the week, type of group and keyword. When you see a group that you want to learn more about, click the “Contact Leader” button to fill out an interest form and the leader will contact you. We encourage you to ask questions. If you want to join the group, simply let the leader know!

At Kensington, groups form around common interests, life stages, or passions. Consider what you would like to study or experience. We have groups that play together, eat together, read books together, and study the Bible together. It is all about creating a community that is experiencing transformation through Jesus.

Don’t be shy about trying out a small group. Sometimes the first group you choose isn’t the right fit and that’s okay as long as you just try another group!

Here is what we look for in leaders at Kensington: People who know how important it is to live in community and how meaningful it is to invest in others. People who know that the growth in their faith has a lot to do with the way they are connected at Kensington and because people invested in them. People who want others to experience belonging too.

Leading a group is not about knowing all the answers. Leading a group is about determining what you want to study and inviting others to do it with you. It is developing relationships with God and with others. Once you commit to lead, our discipleship team will train you, encourage you and coach you.

Group leaders set the schedule and tone for the group. Group leaders develop relationships with Kensington staff leaders and other volunteers to stay connected and informed. Group leaders help their people take a next step in their faith.

Financial Peace University (FPU)

Financial Peace University (FPU) is a catalyst to help people live in financial freedom and enable them to have a posture of openhandedness. We have witnessed numerous Kensington families experience life change as a result of applying Biblical truths to their personal finances. The real blessing is seeing people create lives of margin that allow them to hear and respond to the Lord’s calling on their lives.

What is my purpose? What value does the Bible have in my life? How do I pray? How can I grow in confidence to share my faith?

Counselors Are Needed After Tragedy

“The aftermath of the Oxford shooting tragedy will undoubtedly result in traumatic symptoms and experiences across our communities for quite some time. Healing the brain through evidence-based therapies is absolutely possible with clinical guidance. There is a valuable village of Trauma Therapists with collective resources standing by for Oxford, for both direct and secondary survivors to engage in therapy. Until then, we honorably hold a sacred space, as students, families, staff and school partners continue to mourn.” -Laura Azoni, LMSW, Founder of Sanctuary Services

Together Again

updated June 23, 2021

It’s been life-giving to be in-person for our weekend services since last July when we reopened. If you haven’t yet, we invite you to join us in person sometime soon.

Reservations and ticketing have been discontinued at all our campuses.

Masks are optional at all services, events, and ministry gatherings for kids, students, and adults. We know that everyone needs to make the right health decisions for themselves and their family, so if you feel comfortable removing your mask, you may. And if you’d like to continue wearing a mask or face covering, you may do that as well. This is a personal choice that only you can decide what is best for yourself when attending in person at Kensington.

If you are sick, are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or have possibly been exposed to COVID-19, please plan to stay home and participate in our services via our many online streaming options.

At the start of the pandemic, Kensington’s Executive Team commissioned a group of staff members as a COVID Task Force to establish protocols and procedures for the safety of our church community. Thanks for sticking with us throughout all the changes and adjustments over the past 15 months.

We’re grateful to be together again!
