Let’s Grow Together Campaign Update

As we finalize the plans for our next building expansion, we thank the Lord for blessing us with an amazing path of growth. What a privilege we have to teach more students, share the love of Christ with them every day, and offer a safe environment in which they can grow spiritually, academically, and emotionally.

At various times throughout KML’s 50-year history, our leaders have faced the challenges of a growing enrollment and the need to expand our facilities. We often refer to those times as bold defining moments. We are currently faced with the opportunity for another one! Our leaders are now finalizing plans with the goal of breaking ground in spring of 2024 and completing the project by the summer of 2025.

At this time, we ask for your continued prayers. Pray for our students as they grow every day in their faith and knowledge of Jesus their Savior. Pray for our faculty and administrators as they lead this ministry, and pray for the success of our final year of the Let’s Grow Together campaign, as well as prayerfully considering your own special donation to help reduce the amount we will need to borrow.

This is another bold defining moment for KML and can be accomplished with all of us working together for God’s glory.
