Strengthening Bonds in Challenging Times

As our world continues to fragment and the liquidity of post-modernity strains our natural and ecclesial bonds, the Kenwood Network aims to come alongside to strengthen and equip pastors and churches for the work of the ministry. Our Network of like-minded churches all subscribe to similar doctrinal standards and distinctives, including but not limited to being unapologetically Christ-centered, Reformed, Baptist, and Complementarian, as we aim to multiply healthy churches in fulfillment of the Great Commission motivated by the Great Commandment.

Networking Like-minded Churches

You don’t have to be on an island. The Kenwood Network provides you and your church with like-minded brotherhood and fellowship — even at a distance as we walk together and face challenges as members of one Body of Christ.

Equipping the Ministry

The Kenwood Network is funded and staffed and supported by Kenwood Baptist Church alumni to support the work of like-minded healthy churches in their local contexts.

Encouraging the Saints

As Kenwood Network pastors benefit from the community and resources of the Kenwood Institute, we hope to multiply our impact of reaching more people with the Good News and encouragement of the Gospel.
