Ministry Purpose

Our goal is for all “To Know God and Make Him Known,” through discipleship training, evangelization and mercy ministries. Our emphasis is on a foundation of a strong personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We invite young adults to grow in their faith while experiencing how they can “proclaim the Gospel,” to their own peers at home and then to the unreached of the nations. Our name, “Kerygma” is Greek for “Proclamation of the Gospel.” We provide a way for you to test a vocation to serve God as a lay missionary. Join us in reaching the cultures of the world for Jesus right in our own backyard! Come as you are and be a part of the evangelization of the cities of America for the sake of the gospel.
