KICK Ministries stands for "Kansas Inner City Kids" and it began in 2004, as a church plant called Joshua Tent Ministries.  Through this church plant, they helped start a

neighborhood youth-based ministry and in 2010 changed the name to KICK Ministries and begin partnering with other non-profits organizations in Kansas City.   

In 2018, KICK Ministries shifted it's focus on the development of young men in the inner city, alongside of providing support to their families, due to the high-risk acitivity in the community and lack of programming for the population. 

KICK Ministries utilizes basketball, mentorship, and the Biblical principles to provide character and leadership development, while creating intentional change in our young men.
