The Kingdom Mission Society promotes resources which act as a sort of first wave ecumenism. Many believers in the body may not yet have the vision for a united church, but they do want to work with other Christians around issues of common concern. KMS develops resources to assist a local church or individual in sponsoring an event that will draw people together. KMS will work with you to make the program content and speakers diverse within an ecumenical context. Please contact us today if you are interested in hosting an event or consulting with us on one of our resources (click here to contact us).
Take a look at what we currently offer:
Through a unique partnership with Unity Productions Foundation, KMS is able to screen The Sultan and the Saint which tells the remarkable story of St. Francis and Sultan Malik Al-Kamil, two leaders from two different faiths open to peace.

National Workshop for Christian Unity
Kingdom Mission Society co-leads the Consortiums of Evangelicals and Pentecostals for Christian Unity (CEP) track at the National Workshop for Christian Unity. The National Workshop is the oldest and largest gathering of Christians representing four significant streams of the church in the Roman Catholic Church, the Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the United Methodist Church and affiliated networks. KMS seeks to raise funds to support ‘first-time’ ecumenists to this national gathering. These first-time ecumenists would join the CEP track for the workshop and receive a two-day intensive training and three days of demonstrated high level dialogue. If you are an evangelical or Pentecostal ecumenist and want more information, contact us directly. If you’d like to support up to 50 ‘first-time’ ecumenists please make a direct contribution here. The next workshop is April 2nd-5th, 2018 in Silver Spring, MD.
Join us for our yearly five-day pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi. This ecumenical gathering is open to any leader with a call towards Christian ecumenism. We spend three days in Rome visiting the Vatican, the various Pontifical Councils, and experiencing relationships with Roman Catholics and Christian Orthodox. Come see some of the oldest churches in the world. Included is a two-day stop in Assisi where we learn about St. Francis as an inspiration for ecumenical mission. (Contact us for more information).
