2022 Theme Our theme at Kingwood for 2022 is "We are the Body!"

Missions

This page is all about our local and foreign missions.

Kingwood believes in the importance of spreading the good news of Jesus to the entire world and we love supporting various mission efforts in different places.

Local Missions

Inner City Ministry

Inner City Ministry is a church organization that helps children in lower income areas of Murfreesboro by providing needed items, hosting activities, and teaching them about God. Kingwood supports Inner City Ministry by collecting supplies as needed, money for summer camp sponsorship, and using the building as a meeting space for the elementary age group on Thursday nights.


Portico

Portico offers free support, from pregnancy tests and ultrasounds to post abortion classes, for those who find themselves in a difficult chapter of their lives, and is located here in Murfreesboro, TN. Each spring they have a Baby Bottle Campaign and raise money by having people fill baby bottles with extra change. Kingwood participates in this campaign and also takes up donations of baby items for Portico.

Jail Ministry

Our mission is to reunite returning citizens with God, family, and community. We work to build lifetime relationships with individuals and their families.

Foreign Missions

MAGI Boxes

The MAGI Project is organized by Healing Hands International. Kingwood fills boxes with school supplies, toys, and hygiene items to be given to children in need in Honduras. This project runs from June-August each year.


Brazil

Kingwood works in partnership with the Brazil Church Planting Ministry whose key Ambassador is Paul Dawson.  This ministry is under the oversight of the Ovilla Church of Christ in Ovilla, Texas.  Kingwood’s key Ambassador is Ricardo Maia who lives in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.  The Brazil areas that we work with are in Belo Horizonte through Palmeiras and Esmeralda churches, the church in Uberlandia, and the Charlie Huffman School of Preaching.  Giovanni Vantuil is central in the school of preaching, Delmiro Neto and Celio Santos work in Uberlandia, and Ricardo worships with the Esmeralda congregation and works helping all of the other men. 

Colombia

Kingwood works with the West Olive Church of Christ in Peoria, Arizona.  West Olive works with the day to day over sight of all the work in Columbia.  Jimmy Pinzon is the Missions Coordinator there and has roots in Columbia and with Kingwood.  The specific churches that are part of the work are in Chia, Zipaquira, and the newest work in San Gil.  Chia was the original congregation and then Zipaquira was established and now members Jorge and Rosalba Quiroga, who originally became Christians in Chia, now lead the congregation in San Gil.

Honduras

Kingwood has worked for many years in different ways in Honduras.  For approximately 10 years we had mission groups of 20 to 70 people (mostly made up of the youth group) each year travel to the Tegucigalpa area and visit the women’s prison, the school for the blind, the clinic and school of preaching, and work building houses for and distributing food to the people.  More recently we have worked through Mission Lazarus which is a Honduras based organization that strives to glorify God through education, medical, agricultural, and spiritual needs of the people.  The organization started around 2001 and has grown and continues to be a bright example of what can be done.  Kingwood has sent men’s work groups for several years now to help build schools, churches, and living facilities for the families at Mission Lazarus.

Eastern European Missions

Kingwood supports this mission financially but all of the work across Europe is overseen by Easter European Missions out of Dallas, Texas.  Having spread the gospel through Bibles and books in public schools most notably in Slovenia, Bulgaria, and Ukraine, the newest and most fertile areas now are Greece, Croatia, and Romania.  EEM has now spread Bibles and Bible-based materials to over 30 countries in over 20 languages in over 4000 public schools and over 4,500,000 students.
