"Here is a must-read for all who wonder about the future of vital, classical Christian faith in the face of challenges from contemporary science, especially concerning the nature of human beings. Don Wacome’s welcome approach to reconciling science and Christian faith combines humility and forthrightness, and is imbued with the sort of practical wisdom urgently needed, and too often lacking, in these discussions."

The Board of Trustees has selected May 31, 2023, as a deadline to raise sufficient funds in order to continue operations through the 2023-2024 academic year. While we continue to raise money to support our current obligations, we have limited time to secure the funds needed to continue the mission of The King’s College. Based on recent budgetary needs, that amount could be as great as $12 million.
The good news is that a group of generous donors has committed $100,000 as a matching gift. That means that all donations received between now and Tuesday, May 9 will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000. Regardless of the outcome of our current situation, we will need additional funds to either finish well or move forward. Any donations toward the $100K match are both welcomed and vital and will be used to pay our current pressing obligations.
Will you prayerfully consider how God might involve you in this phase of our fundraising efforts?

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb...And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel...the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise."
– Luke 24:1-7
Happy Resurrection Day from The King's College!
When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. – John 19:30
"Psalm 49 is a stark reminder that 'I am a flower quickly fading / Here today and gone tomorrow' (Casting Crowns). Sobering, yes. It is not only a remedy to our own sense of self-importance, but a probing of the heart. The question to ask ourselves is: What is the story I’m telling myself about why I’m here?
Know your belovedness. In this season of uncertainty, our roots need to go deeper still into the love of God, a love that is stronger than death. Yes, we are experiencing an existential threat. The anticipation of grief shows up in our bodies as we find it hard to focus, sleep, or just feel numb. Nothing is certain. Yet, [God] He would remind us that the ransom was paid and we are His, first and foremost.
Remember your belovedness and show the world who you are by loving one another deeply. And there, we will find our legacy."

"Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints
and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morning." –Psalm 30:4-5
Last week on Thursday, our community engaged in a day of fasting and prayer where we spent intentional time in worship and prayer morning, noon, and night to intercede over our school, our city, and our world.
I have read many letters over the past few days regarding love for The King’s College and the strengthening of faith and fellowship King’s provided. For my letter, I would like to submit thoughts on the King’s approach to education and the careful shaping of the full person.
I currently teach Junior Kindergarten at a classical Christian school on the Upper West Side and I ended up here due to an informational interview with a fellow King’s alumna. Every day at work I am reminded of the knowledge I gained at King’s, and that knowledge informs how I serve others and teach the youth of our time to be passionate about the things that are good, true, and beautiful – just as King’s taught me.
I am so glad I did not go to college just to study and perfect one skill or subject area to merely gain the knowledge I wanted, walk away with a degree, and never look back. On the contrary, I am proud that I graduated from King’s with the desire to constantly learn and reach for new insights and information. To ask why. To integrate subject matters. To learn in community. To learn through loss and victory. To learn to excel in the little things. To learn inside a small institution. To learn my place in a very big city. To learn with my whole soul and my whole mind. To be formed by historic texts and human relationships. To know what it means to create a foundation of knowledge around the God who laid the foundations of the universe, and understand that everything else interacts with that truth.

I arrived at 56 Broadway around noon for my job interview on the day of the Great Race in 2012. I arrived to utter chaos in the best way possible.
I’m 1700 miles away from my home state of Texas and now I’ve given 10.5 years of my life to this institution. So why do I stay? I stay because of students. I stay for chats over coffee in my office. I stay for slack messages with my interregnum team. I stay for the Night of Worship held monthly in my apartment with the House of Thatcher. I stay for the August days of Statesmanship training that are Iong but worth it. I stay for move-in days and all of its excitement. I stay for graduation day, my favorite day of King’s, the day we all work so hard to get students to.
King’s, you’ve meant so much to me. I’ve seen lives transformed. Seen students come to Christ. I’ve seen students grow exponentially in character. Getting a front seat view of students' lives has and will be one of the greatest joys of my life this side of heaven. Thank you for so many of your friendships. Thanks for letting me celebrate you. Thanks for encouraging me when I most need it too. Thanks for inviting me to your weddings. To the House of Thatcher, you have my entire pink and green heart. I’m eternally grateful to all of you. Thatcher Forever. To my Interregnum Committees, you’ve been the most hardworking individuals. Thank you for everything you did for this school. To my colleagues, thanks for fighting this good fight alongside me. I’m better because of all of you.

IN 2014, I had an opportunity to teach an Intro. to Marketing class at King’s. At the time, I was working full-time as a management consultant but always thought I might enjoy teaching. I was nervous, I didn’t know what students would expect, and I wasn’t so sure about grading papers. But within those first few weeks, I learned that students are eager to learn, curious, and enjoyed challenging each other – and me! And I was hooked. It’s really because of TKC’s students that I found my calling as a teacher.
At King’s, I can always bring my full self. My Christian worldview, my experiences in management consulting, my travel stories, my updates about Baxter the fat cat. And I can share about my struggles and challenges and know that these can also be learning opportunities. Most of all, I love sharing life with students. The good, the hard, the belly-laugh moments, and the tears. I continue to be impressed by the academic quality and the compassion and good humor of our students. This is a special place.

I remember watching this movie in my small Johannesburg apartment in the eighth grade. Most of it took place in Manhattan, and all I could think about was New York in the summer, and that became a dream. Dancing on rooftops, walking on the iconic concrete streets of the Upper West Side, and jazz concerts in Prospect Park…my bucket list became endless and concentrated in this metropolis.
I also dreamed of making a difference, of bringing meaning to such a marvelous yet dark corner of our world. As Ion Keith Falconer once said, I have but one candle of life left to burn, and I’d rather burn it in a land filled with darkness rather than somewhere inundated with light.
King’s became the place where I have cultivated my passions and refined my gifts. It became the place where I’ve had the opportunity to lead and make a tangible difference in my community for the sake of those around me and for the sake of my Savior.

Almost every college tells you their professors “actually care.” What does that mean?
At King’s, it meant that when my grandpa contracted covid, my con law professor, Dr. Tubbs, called me regularly to ask how I was doing. A year after my grandpa passed away, Dr. Tubbs asked how my family was doing. He remembered. After I graduated, Dr. Tubbs spent months workshopping my law school applications with me. He repeatedly told me to “aim high” because he knew I was capable. He now calls me to ask how law school is going.
I could say so much more about King’s– how it introduced me to my best friends, taught me to be curious and diligent, and deepened my love for learning. It was also a blast: sprinting to the UN for Great Race, powderpuff in Prospect Park, renting a movie theater for House History Competition. College in New York City is challenging and exhausting and enchanting. King’s integrates high academic achievement with character formation. It models Christian community not perfectly, but well. And its professors actually care.

It was a few months into my first semester at King’s as a transfer student and I was sitting in the classroom waiting for Christianity & Society to start. In walks Dr. Bradley, decked out in his bowtie and Clemson pants.
Before class started, he explained that he was wearing the pants because Clemson’s basketball team was playing in the NIT at Madison Square Garden later that night. He had some extra tickets and wanted to know if any of us wanted to go. New to King’s, I laughed it off assuming he was joking. However, as a basketball fan and having never been to Madison Square Garden I figured I would take him up on the offer, so after class I told him I would love to go if he was actually up for it. Excitedly, he told me to pick a friend to come along and to meet him in Midtown a little before game time.
Although Clemson lost, we had a great time and it turned into a tradition during my time at King’s where we would go to the NIT Championship game every year, even if Clemson wasn’t playing.
Thank you, King’s for providing fantastic memories and surrounding us with professors and mentors that cared and continue to care for us.

Something a lot of people don’t realize is the amount of influence the people around you have.
There are always instances where you catch yourself saying or doing something your friends say or do all the time. I’ve picked up phrases and actions from my friends plenty of times. The majority of people see this as a bad thing because we always picture these friends smoking, drinking, doing drugs, etc. However, people forget that there are actually good people in the world.
At King’s, these people shaped and inspired plenty of habits and words that I carry out almost on a daily basis. It’s almost like watching your favorite YouTuber and copying what they do and say. In my case, my roommates, professors, and church friends all play a heavy influence on my habits and thoughts. I learn to think like them, act like them, and ultimately become a better person than I was before.

I am a freshman at King’s. I came here from Colorado because I wanted a school with a Christian education but a realistic experience. In other words, I wanted to be taught by Christian professors while engaging with non-believers everyday.
New York City gave me that. The King’s College gave me that. As soon as I moved here I started working with a mission program called Envision NYC. They help with the West African community around the city, teaching them English and helping them study for citizenship tests. It helps them get better and higher paying jobs.
My teachers inspire me every day, and my classmates challenge me to think in new ways. Though every day isn’t a movie and there are days when I’m utterly exhausted, there is no place I would rather be. No college I would rather learn at. I am so excited for the work the Lord can do at this college and in this city. This is my mission field.
There are so many different people groups which the Lord has placed here, and he is just waiting for us to see it. “For the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few (Matthew 9:38).”

“Look around, because the person you marry may be in this room,” said Stan Oakes on the first day of new student orientation. My new roommates and I giggled and rolled our eyes. Immediately after the session ended, my mom introduced me to the student she’d been sitting by: Mark Thorne, a surfer from New Jersey with nose-length blonde hair. We started dating later that year, and he is now my husband of 15 years.
I learned the meaning of embracing “difficulty” during those days – balancing my duties as a student with part-time work, house leadership, church, relationships with friends, family, and my soon-to-be fiancé. I didn’t do it all well, but I gained new perspectives and bonded with those around me.
I will always be grateful for the transformative role King’s has played in my life. Finding a home in the middle of the biggest city in the country is the last thing I expected, but it feels clear that God has called me here. And none of it would have happened without The King’s College.

TKC Letters Project - Passion The TKC Letters Project is a collection of the unique stories of individuals who have been impacted by their time as a student at The King's College in New York City.
As we continue to push towards our $2.6 million goal, we wanted to tell you about the TKC Letters Project, a student-led initiative to share stories of how The King's College has worked in and through the lives of its students and alumni.
Looking for a way to help the College during this time, three King's students, Matthew Peterson ('26), Aidan Ableson ('25), and Eli Johnson ('26), joined together to collect stories from their fellow students and previous graduates in order to share them through a website that they built over the weekend. Since launching, they have collected over 50 student and alumni stories so far and hope to get to 200 by the end of the week.

TKC Letters Project The TKC Letters Project is a collection of the unique stories of individuals who have been impacted by their time as a student at The King's College in New York City.
We believe in the need for Christ-centered colleges and universities that go beyond building careers, but shape the souls of the next generation. This is our mission.
But, we need your help.
Like many colleges, we experienced enrollment and funding declines over the past several years. In spite of significantly reducing our expenses, renegotiating our lease, and streamlining our operations, we now face an immediate and urgent need to raise $2.6 million to finish our semester well. While we are making encouraging progress, we still have a ways to go.
Right now, we need the help of alumni, friends of the school, and extended family to continue our mission and serve our students who are so close to graduating.
Please pray for God’s provision for our community and consider making a donation today.
Last week, we followed Dr. Ben White’s “Christianity and the City” class on a walking tour of Greenwich Village. This class combines an out-of-the-classroom exploration of New York City with an in-depth study of the apostle Paul’s letters to cosmopolitan Corinth, which serve as a model for contextualizing the gospel in the NYC context.
