Keeping It Real Church was started as a Bible study for high school students. The response and growth of the bible study was so great, that it evolved into a Church!
God has continued to do "Great things" with this congregation of young people. KIRC has become some what of a movement. God has even opened the door for KIRC to help other Churches start next generation ministries. The next generation leaders and worship team are often invited to minister at conferences and retreats. Working with with young people is not something we do on the side, it is at the fore front of all we do!
Our emphasis is on "Passing the Baton" This simply means, we are dedicated to making disciples for the Lord Jesus Christ. We are actively mentoring the next generation of believers to take their place in the Church and to become all that God has called them to be!
Naturally, this is all for the purpose of, Soul Winning. This generation must win this generation to Christ!
