Our vision is that everyone who wakes up in Kansas City is within arm’s reach of a Jesus living on mission where they live, learn, work and play.  

We believe everyone who lives in Kansas City has the kingdom right to hearing the Good News of Jesus from a friend.

Mission

Love KC exists to connect and mobilize Jesus followers in Kansas City to live on mission. Jesus said, “follow me and I will teach you to fish for men1.” We serve so every disciple will confidently live out their faith and know what to say to reach their friends for Jesus. We support disciples to make disciples who make disciples.

We are adding an average of 50 neighborhoods a month over the last 2.5 yrs.
