Resurrection Downtown
We are so thankful for the support of our community as we opened the first new church built in downtown Kansas City in more than 80 years. This is just the beginning of this new adventure in the heart of our city at 1601 Grand.

We are on a mission to meet people—all people—wherever they are.

Our Story

December 2009 Resurrection Downtown launched. Average worship attendance was 187 Adults.

January 2016 Our average worship attendance approached 1,000 adults and we had over 120 children enrolled in KiDSCOR. Our missions generosity doubled from the previous year and our community life programming was at an all-time high.
April 2016 Raised over $6.4 million in capital campaign commitments to build our new sanctuary, which would be located at 1601 Grand.
March 2017 Broke ground on the future site of our worship space – paving a parking lot to put up paradise!
June 2018 Opened the first new church built in downtown Kansas City in 80+ years, celebrating the grand opening with more than 1,600 in attendance.
Looking Forward The future is bright for Resurrection Downtown as we seek to build a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.

Our City

Resurrection Downtown’s growth story hasn’t happened in isolation. Over the past several years our city has experienced and is experiencing a similar season of growth. The KC Streetcar was completed in April 2016 and since construction started, more than $1.79 billion of new development has been completed.

The Downtown population is estimated to grow by 42% in the next five years and by 20% in the next two years. There are currently 2,082 housing units under construction. An additional 2,249 housing units are planned for 2016. 4,331 new households are moving into the neighborhood by the end of this year.

How will Resurrection Downtown continue to welcome them into our community?

Our Vision

We celebrate that our new sanctuary…

Allows all of our people to gather together under one roof once again.

Alleviates over-capacity services and make room for people to invite others.

Enables continued growth and expansion of our children’s ministries.

Provides easily accessible on-site parking that is contiguous with our space.

Creates clearly defined entry points visible from every parking space.

Allows us to be leaders in the city’s “Making Grand Grand” initiative.

Let’s Continue to pray together daily…

God, grant us the vision to see the plans you have for your church, and the courage and boldness to pursue them fully. Amen.

Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us; glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus for all generations, forever and always. Amen.
