Praise God as He hears and answers our prayers!

The King’s Daughters and Sons are prayerful people. God has answered some of our smallest prayers in great ways. As we pray together on November 1, our traditional IOKDS PRAYER DAY, ask Him to enlarge our vision and our prayers to match His purpose. Pray for greater faith and for others to know Christ through our words and actions.

A Scholar's Story
Message from Student Ministry Scholar, Timothy Sheridan
Perhaps the greatest lesson I have learned over the past year is how truly practical the work and mission of the Church is. Since I was a teenager, I have loved theology and the study of God’s Word. I do not have the space here to share all the insights I have gleaned from my seminary classes, all of which have been excellent courses. Combining my academic work with practical work in the church has rejuvenated my love for service to the people of God. My time here in Fort Wayne has reminded me time and again of the purpose for which I am studying.

Clergy Week 2017
From Spiritual Life Director, Beth Fanta

A wonderful week of CLERGY RENEWAL took place July 29 – August 4 and we greatly appreciate all of your efforts in making this program a success!

Our fifteen participants represented five Christian denominations and traveled from IA, IN, NY, Ontario, TN and WV.  They were greeted warmly by our volunteer hostesses, and settled into their comfortable IOKDS accommodations, Bonnie Hall in the center of the Institution overlooking the Brick Walk and Florence Hall with its lovely views of the lake.
