Kelowna Christian Center Society (KCCS) was established in 1982 to facilitate the vision our founder David Kalamen had for community and global influence based upon the Biblical mandate of Isaiah 61. The core commitment to “growing old together” has resulted in the emergence of a leadership team that has walked together for many years and guided KCCS’s church, schools and mission programs, impacting over 35 nations of the world. KCCS is a spiritual family whose sons and daughters have become dedicated next generational leaders, and are continuing the call of cultural engagement through local and global discipleship.
"To reach, raise up and release people who are competent to represent their faith in every sphere of culture."
