Meet Our Team

Here at KingsWay, we are blessed to have the vast majority of our members serving in a regular capacity as volunteers. Without these faithful families, we would look very different as a church. In addition, we have a small group of men and women who serve our church body with gifts of teaching and administration as members of our staff and elder team. Meet them below and know that they are here to serve you in any way they can. To connect, please email us here and you will be directed to the appropriate staff member.
