Building A Sanctuary of Transformation

Kairos Youth Group

“Kairos” is one of the Greek words for “time.” Kairos refers to an opportunity moment of time, as well as quality of time. In such kairos moments of life, the invitation of God to draw near to him through the Lord Jesus Christ is made very real and relevant. The Kairos Youth Ministry balances lots of fun times, opportunity to serve, Bible study, the practice of prayer, and relating through healthy relationships as foundations to genuine spiritual formation in Jesus Christ. Our goal is to bring kids to faith in Jesus and form them as disciples. Too often the “youth group” story of churches is one where the kids had fun and learned about the Bible, but they left the church after reaching college. Why?  This happens when they were not “formed” in their faith as Jesus’ disciples who know how to love God, love people, and walk in faith and in the humble power of the Holy Spirit. In other words, daily life with God becomes a real aspect of their young lives — and, in years to come, their adult lives. This is formation in Christ from which kids won’t walk away when their youth group days end.

The Kairos Youth Group began in September, 2009, as a jointly sponsored ministry by Christ the King and St. James Anglican Churches. It was run from its inception with the support of parent leaders from both churches assisting Fr. Mark Lauer– “pMark” he was quickly nicknamed, because “Pastor Mark” wasn’t cool enough.  Kids from both churches kicked it off. Eight kids came to the first night! With humble beginnings, we started. 12 kids came the next week, and 14 after that– and the ministry just grew from there.  Both middle and high school kids from our churches were enthusiastic about inviting their friends, and the ministry was quickly marked as a city-wide church. Eventually, 25-30 kids would pack out a house each week, representing 10 different churches and no churches. For some kids, Kairos was the only Church they knew. We met only in homes and the group quickly became “family” for many of the kids. In June of 2012, we graduated a few seniors, and in June of 2013 we graduated 12 seniors.  A couple of families moved away in those two years, and the next thing you know we had 10 kids again to kick off the fall of 2013.

The group is going through an adjustment as new leaders step forward and as new friends are invited. It’s fun and we are excited for a new future for Kairos.  Middle and High Schoolers are welcome here! At the end of 2013, the ministry shifted as it is no longer jointly sponsored. Kairos is run exclusively by Fr. Mark Lauer and Christ the King Anglican Church. We meet in two homes and sometimes at the site where Christ the King meets for worship services.   We are still assisted by parents and have an active 2014-2015 planned.

About Our Church

Anglican Mission logoChrist The King Anglican Church embodies the Three Streams of the historic Christian Church: The Scripture (Evangelical stream), The Sacred (the Sacramental stream) and The Spirit (the Charismatic stream).   We are happy to belong to The Anglican Mission: A Society of Mission and Apostolic Works. The Mission.  The Mission began in December 1999, and it has been the leader in establishing new churches and ministries in an Anglican heritage across North America.

We’re committed to believe and trust Jesus Christ, to be directed by His Spirit, and to trust in His Holy Scripture as our standard in matters of faith and practice. Everyone who is at Christ the King now was once a visitor and decided to make this his or her church home. We hope you will consider making the same decision!
