Make Houston a Place
Where Jesus Is King
Reach the Unreached in
Houston’s Galleria Neighborhood
Houston is a beautiful multicultural and diverse city brimming with professionals across a spectrum of disciplines. They come from all over the world with a variety of spiritual backgrounds.
We are part of this community. We’re Dayo and Dupe Adeyefa, first generation immigrants working at Texas Medical Center and living in downtown Houston’s Galleria neighborhood.
In our time here, we’ve discovered that our colleagues and others like them feel:
Many of these souls are from a diverse background who don’t relate to the current megachurch culture. They’re educated and skeptical of the church. We have noticed a decline of the basic knowledge of the scriptures and the saving power of the Gospel.
As a married couple living and working in our community, we’ve been able to touch lives and minister to this group of people. We’ve served as mentors and leaders. We’ve developed an online ministry, a launch team, and a Saturday morning Bible study.
And we’ve done all of this asking one question:
We’ve watched people begin to put Jesus first, growing through the systematic study of Scripture and see their lives change.
And now, we’re getting ready to launch a full service. As co-vocational ministers, our financial resources will come predominantly from our work but we are fundraising to meet the need of the church plant so that we have the resources to proclaim the gospel, equip kingdom minded disciples and serve the lost and needy in our city.
King’s City Church invites people to experience the love of Jesus. We want to point to Him as King because, under His reign, the deepest longings of every heart are truly satisfied.
Our team will fill every week with:
Bring the hope of Jesus to immigrants, educated professionals, struggling families, and more in downtown Houston.
