Let’s Grow Together

To God be all the glory! We have received more than $2.5 million in gifts and pledges toward our goal of $10 million. Every day we are sharing the blessings of a growing enrollment as well as our need to expand our building. For our many new donors and our faithful donors, we thank you! It is our prayer that our entire KML family will pray, support, and share the mission of our Let’s Grow Together campaign.

$2.5M as of October 26, 2022


Goal: $10M by June 30, 2024

Did you know that when you increase your monthly giving and designate your gift to the Let’s Grow Together campaign, your gift counts toward our challenge? And, if you’re one of our KML alumni, it counts toward both challenges!

  • A challenge gift of $280,000 has been committed with the goal of receiving Let’s Grow Together gifts from 1400 donors. This generous friend of KML will give a $200 incentive gift to KML for every donor up to 1400 donors who give their gift to the Let’s Grow Together campaign.
  • When 150 of those 1400 donors are KML alumni, our generous donor will give an additional $20,000 for a total of $300,000!

We ask you to help us meet this challenge by being one of the 1400 donors. For more information visit or contact either President Jamie Luehring ( or Director of Mission Advancement Wendy Breimon (

The time is now. Let’s Grow Together!
