HOW TO JOIN THE K.I.N.G. MOVEMENT
To become a member, or Crown, of The K.I.N.G. Movement, one must go through a Crowning process that culminates in The Crowning Ceremony. The process and ceremony is Biblically-based and designed to encourage, inspire and embolden men in their relationship with Jesus Christ. It also creates a strong bond of brotherhood among K.I.N.G. members and ensures that all members understand the basic tenets of The Movement. The Crowning Ceremony is completely transparent and in fact, family members and friends of prospective Crowns are invited to attend as observers. To begin the Crowning/membership process, contact K.I.N.G. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Crowning process, which is led by local or national K.I.N.G. leaders, is as follows:
- Read and agree with K.I.N.G.’s Statement of Faith and Manifesto.
- Email a written statement to the K.I.N.G. national office (email@example.com) consisting of your personal Christian testimony and why you want to join K.I.N.G.
- Memorize the K.I.N.G. Mission Statement and be able to explain how, by fulfilling its mission, K.I.N.G. can be a benefit to society. This information can be found by going to the ABOUT tab and clicking on MISSION STATEMENT.
- Memorize the four foundational scriptures of K.I.N.G. and be able to explain in your own words why each of the four scriptures was chosen to represent K.I.N.G. This information can be found by going to the ABOUT tab and clicking on LOGO & COLORS.
- Memorize the K.I.N.G. colors and be able to explain in your own words why each color was chosen to represent K.I.N.G. This information can be found by going to the ABOUT tab and clicking on LOGO & COLORS.
- Pass a written test on the aforementioned material.
- Sign the K.I.N.G. Manifesto.
- Pay your annual $50 membership fee.
- Participate in the Crowning Ceremony, at which time you will recite the information covered on the written test.
HOW TO START A K.I.N.G. CHAPTER
- Become a member by completing the Crowning process listed above.
- Prospective chapter leader/s must have two recommendation letters each (if married, one must be from their wife; the other from a friend, colleague, or someone in ministry), emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The prospective leader/s have a series of conference calls with the leaders of K.I.N.G.’s Chapter Growth and Development Committee. On these calls, the potential leaders will receive instruction, guidance and aid in starting a local chapter.
- To be recognized as an official K.I.N.G. chapter, you need at least five members, including a President and Vice President. However, you may start the process of becoming a chapter with fewer men.
