THE CHURCH OF THE KING STORY
Church of the King was founded 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 had grown 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 1,000-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 every year, creating a demand for
more facility space. On the weekend of November 8-9, 2013, we had
the privilege to move into our brand-new, 2,700-seat, 120,000
square-foot church home.
Since the beginning of our main campus, we have continued to
expand our impact throughout the region with church campuses in
Baton Rouge, LA; Bay St. Louis, MS; Biloxi, MS; Kenner, LA; and, our
newest location, in Peachtree City, GA. This in addition to our growing
online campus and TV broadcast ministry. We are One Church with
Over the years, Church of the King has continued to grow in its
weekend attendance and regional impact. Now in the second decade
of its existence, the church has grown to more than 8,000 people in
attendance on the weekends. 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 services are available for
Junior High and High School students on Wednesday nights.
In 2011, Church of the King launched the South Shore Campus with
just 100 People. Since then, the campus has multiplied with over 1000
in regular weekend attendance. In 2018, God opened the door for us
to purchase and renovate a former movie theater adjacent to the
Esplanade mall in Kenner, which is now our West Esplanade Campus.
This new church home allows us to provide impactful ministry to our
community and beyond. Our campus pastor is Dave Madden, who’s
been a part of Church of the King since 2008.
