Kingman, Kansas is located 35 miles west of Wichita on U.S. Highway 54 in Kingman County. The population of the county is approximately 7,600 with 3,000 of those residing in the City of Kingman. The Kingman Mennonite Church was established by a group of Swiss Mennonite immigrants in 1906. The current church building is located at 1620 South Main with an average worship attendance of 100. Our congregation is made up of a variety of denominational backgrounds with less than 20% being ethnic Mennonite. Pastor David Roth began his pastorate at Kingman in November of 2005 after serving the Des Allemands Mennonite Church in Louisiana for 7 years. The congregation has a warm, welcoming and loving spirit that seeks to make the love of Christ known to the community we live.
The Kingman Mennonite Church is privileged to serve the Kingdom of God through a variety of ways. Approximately five years ago we became responsible for overseeing the disbursement of funds for the local Salvation Army unit. Through this ministry, many contacts with individuals were made that would not normally have contact with a pastor. During those interactions we have had the privilege to not only provide financial assistance to individuals and families, but also emotional and spiritual encouragement. Additionally, this past Thanksgiving we prepared a meal for inmates and staff at the county jail. Our goal is to make Christ known as we serve in our community moving beyond our walls. Our hope is the Lord will direct us how we may serve Him in new and exciting ways.
We are excited to serve alongside of the churches of South Central Conference and learning from our sister congregations how we may expand and enhance our ministry. Thank you all so much for welcoming us to share our lives and ministry together.
