Our Mission: To Give The Hope of Christ to KC Inner City Kids (KICK)


KICK Ministries began over 13 years ago when Dave and Angie Stanley moved from the suburbs to an urban Kansas City, KS neighborhood to plant a church called Joshua Tent Ministries.  Through this church plant, they helped start the Spanish speaking congregation called Siloe Covenant Church that is now worshipping in Lenexa, KS.  Siloe is led by Jose and Lupita Sanchez, pastors from Juarez, Mexico that Dave and Angie sponsored (in the early days of the ministry) to immigrate to Kansas City.

Doing neighborhood based ministry for six years was a blessing, but ultimately became too demanding and led to Dave and Angie feeling burned out and in need of separation from the immediate needs around them.  They moved back to the suburbs 7 years ago which prompted them to transition the ministry to focus on youth, change the name to KICK Ministries and begin partnering with other youth ministries in Kansas City, KS.



During this time, they partnered with Rosedale Church (a youth church) and the KC Blue Dogs sports ministry.  Through these partnerships, they served hundreds of kids doing various programs, mission trips, and camp.  They also rented a large gymnasium for three years to facilitate the sports ministry.




Currently, they recently hired Winston Frazier as full-time Program Director and developed their own basketball teams, the KICK Kings.  They are now serving students in both Kansas City, MO and Kansas City, KS through KICK Basketball outreach, KICK Club, KICK Leaders and this summer, KICK Camp.
