Who We Are

OUR HISTORY

During 27 years of trial and error, God has taught us what matters most.

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 27 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.

HOW WE LIVE OUT OUR MISSION

Church Planting

We think Jesus’ message is so amazing that there’s no one right way to tell it, that’s why we’re dedicated to planting, equipping and encouraging new churches all over the country. Each plant has a totally different way of doing things – and we think that means they’re doing it right. Some church plants meet in homes, some meet in comedy clubs, and some have already grown into their own facilities. They’ve each got their own vision and personality, but everyone shares the same passion for spreading God’s love and planting more and more new churches.

Campusing

Every week thousands of people across Michigan experience Kensington in their own communities through campusing. Think of campusing as putting the music, message, and mission of Kensington into a box and unpacking it at any of our six locations. The campusing model isn’t about creating carbon copies of the perfect church, it’s about spreading the message of Jesus Christ with the all the resources and excellence he’s blessed us with. Each campus has it’s own lead pastor, local outreaches, and unique community vibe so feel free to check ‘em all out.

Global Partners

Our global partners take Jesus Christ to the world. It might sound backwards, but our strategy with our global partners is to get left in the dust, to see the local churches in the Middle East, Kenya, and India grow legs and set off running. Beyond sending support and short-term missions teams to these areas Kensington is dedicated to equipping local leaders to engage their community and activate the indigenous body of believers.

Together, Kensington and our partners have erected hospitals in crowded India, brought clean water wells to the plains of Africa, and brought Christ to thousands. Learn more about our Global Partners.
