WHO WE ARE

LEARN MORE ABOUT KEN CARYL CHURCH



OUR PASSION

Our passion and purpose as a church is to simply…

Love God and Love People.

This comes from Matthew 22 where it says, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

We realize that Christ has made it so simple for us. But although it sounds so easy, we realize there needs to be a community around to support those who are striving to follow Christ’s words in this world.


OUR MISSION

    CONNECT | With God’s Community

    • To share the Good News of Jesus Christ to hundreds and thousands of people in the South Jefferson County, Littleton area and beyond.
    • To welcome over 5000 members into the fellowship of our church network that includes partnering churches and church plants.

    GROW | Through God’s Community

    • That every member will develop into spiritually mature followers of Christ.
    • That every member be connected to a small group of believers.

    SERVE | In God’s Community

    • That every member is cared for physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
    • That every member is actively using their time, talents, and treasure to make sure we can accomplish these dreams.

    GO | Out into the World

    • To send out hundreds of short-term missionaries and dozens of career missionaries and pastors.
    • To start over 100 new churches in Denver, Colorado, the United States, and around the world.
    • That every member is involved in building and expanding the Kingdom of God by building relationships with those who aren’t followers of Christ and openly sharing their faith.

WHO IS THE LEAD PASTOR?


Jeff became the senior pastor of Ken Caryl Church in April of 2015.  He has deep convictions about the Bible being the inspired Word of God, meaning it is authoritative and life-changing.  The central message of Scripture, that Jesus Christ died on the cross, rose from the grave, and is returning one day is something that needs to be shared with every person on the planet.  Jeff desires to see Ken Caryl take the message of Jesus to people in Littleton and to people around the world.
The Gibsons love calling Colorado home and enjoy getting to know new people in the Denver area.  Jeff and Kim enjoy raising their children, traveling, watching people grow in their faith, and being part of Ken Caryl Church.
