Let’s Grow Together Campaign Update

In anticipation of breaking ground for our transformative ministry expansion, and as we get close to realizing this vision, several potential scenarios may unfold should the funds necessary to complete the entire project fall short.

  • Eliminate the third court in the gymnasium
  • Shell out the second floor without finishing it
  • Reduce necessary equipment and furniture
  • Eliminate the multipurpose room designed for cheer, wrestling, and physical education

Above all, we seek your prayers. Pray that God’s abundance surpasses all expectations and plans for this campaign. Your gift or pledge today signifies unwavering support and contributes to our collective goal of expanding the KML ministry. Your belief in our Christian mission and your support for this campaign are not only valued but essential to not only benefit our current students, but generations to come.

All are invited to attend the groundbreaking service for our Let’s Grow Together building project. The service will take place in the PAC Auditorium at 6:15 PM on Monday, April 8. Doors open at 6:00 PM.

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!

Host an International Student in 2024-2025

KML is seeking families to host international students for the 2024-2025 school year. The number of host families that we have available determines the number of international student applications we will be able to accept. Host families receive a stipend of $800/month to provide housing, meals, and transportation from early to mid-August through the end of May.

KML’s international students are required to have a high level of English fluency, but may not be used to speaking English all the time. Many of them also experience American culture for the first time when they come to KML, and our foods and customs take time to get used to. Host families need to be patient, understanding, and open-minded about the addition of an international student to their family.

Applications for hosting for the 2024-2025 school year need to be submitted by April 25, 2024. If you are interested in serving as a host family, please visit for more information.
