Lawrence, KS

Bacckground
Students with some connection and relationships with the churches have been attending the University of Kansas in Lawrence ever since the church in Kansas City began in the early 1980’s. Through some saints who moved to Lawrence, a home meeting was raised up over the last 10 years. We currently have 10 saints, including students, on our phone list. In the weeks since the middle of August 2017, we have again had new people, mainly students, and some have been attending the three weekly meetings— home meetings on Friday night, Wednesday prayer meeting, and Lord’s Day table and prophesying meetings.

Currently we have only one full-time brother serving on the campus. There is the need for more local homes and couples. In the church life we also have the need for childcare. More homes and childcare will cause us to grow and create a threefold cord of full-timers, students, and community saints for a very healthy church-life.
