Church of the King started in 1999 by Pastor Steve and his wife, Jennifer. With 19 people in attendance, Church of the King held its first service in a small church in Mandeville, Louisiana. Within a few months, the church moved into a commercial office space to accommodate the rapid growth. At the end of the first year, the weekend attendance grew to over 450 people. The church continued to grow and in the spring of 2001 purchased the Adventure Skate building on the northeast corner of Interstate 12 and Highway 59 in Mandeville. After a four-month renovation to convert the “skating rink” into a 1000 seat auditorium, the church held its first service just two days prior to the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
Since then, the church has grown over the years creating a demand for more facility space. On the weekend of November 8-9, 2013, we were excited to move into our brand new 2700 seat, 120,000 square foot church home. In addition to this campus, we expanded our impact in the region with a church campus in Biloxi, Mississippi, and at East Jefferson High School in Metairie, Louisiana. We are One Church with Multiple Locations.
Over the years, Church of the King has continued to grow in its weekend attendance and regional impact. As we are now into our second decade, the church has grown to more than 6,000 people who attend on the weekend. Church of the King offers contemporary weekend worship services that are alive with energy, creativity, and bible-based teaching, including dynamic and engaging children’s ministry. Timely and relevant youth ministry is available for the teens on Wednesday nights.
Our hope is that you will come and see how exciting church can be! We invite you to come and be a part of all God is doing here at Church of the King. Our desire is that you would go after God with all your heart and experience true joy found only in the person of Jesus Christ.
