Kids are a big deal to us at Church of the King - so it only makes sense that we should have a children's ministry facility that reflects that heart! We want a place that is safe and secure so that we don't have any concerns about dropping our kids off while we enjoy a church service. We want a place that is comfortable where babies and toddlers can relax and feel right at home. And, we want a place that our kids are excited about and can't to go to because it's a blast! So, to accomplish all of that, we are preparing to completely re-imagine our entire Children's Ministry Wing.
- Safe, secured children's areas that can only be accessed through the new check-in counter
- Dedicated restrooms just for the Children's Ministry
- Redesigned rooms set up specifically for each age
We know that we are called to be a regional church, and our region is growing. Just across the bridge, the Sulphur area alone is expected to add 15,000 new people. In our own church, over 600 households (40%) in our database are outside of the city of Lake Charles - in areas that will need life-giving churches.
- Purchase property for a second campus
- Begin Construction of new facility
- Acquire audio and visual equipment
- Purchase children's ministry equipment and other equipment
Since we began broadcasting just a few years ago, over 12,000 people have viewed Church of the King services online and over 33,000 have listened to our podcasts. Technology is changing, though, and so we must too. We need to update our equipment and capabilities to better adapt to our changing digital landscape and continue to provide quality live streaming and recorded services online.
- Purchase High Definition Cameras
- Add additional software and hardware for live streaming and recording
- Construct a dedicated recording and mixing area
- Expanded network capabilities to allow for a better streaming experience and public WiFi access at the church
Our church is growing and expanding and if you've ever walked through the foyer after church, you can feel it. Part of Even Greater includes making our foyer larger by expanding the front and changing the counter and foyer layout.
- An over 30% increase in foyer space
- Redesigned Welcome & Information Center
- Redesigned doorways and entries

Unity brings blessing and favor. Our church has been built on a spirit of teamwork and our prayer is that we would carry the vision together. We all have different abilities to give, but each person’s involvement makes a great difference.
One of our greatest resources is carrying the vision of our church and this project in prayer. We encourage everyone to pray about your role, for a strong spirit of partnership throughout our church and for the people whom this project will reach.
