Support The King's College during our time of financial need
The reconstituted Board of Trustees has convened numerous Board meetings, working diligently to explore multiple options to continue the College’s distinctive mission. As a result of these exhaustive efforts, we are currently in advanced discussions with another Christian university regarding an educational and operational partnership in order to remain open in New York City for the 2023-2024 academic year and beyond.
The Board of Trustees is actively pursuing this possibility and will provide a further update by June 16, 2023.
Whether or not the College is able to operate in the coming school year, we will need additional funds to finish our course or move forward. Any donations to The King’s College are both welcomed and vital and will be used to fulfill our current pressing obligations and help the College as it makes important choices during this time.

Here’s how you can advance the mission of The King’s College.
The King’s College 2014, J.D. Fordham University
Jessica’s legal expertise has led to a range of positions in the field, from judicial law clerk to Chief Judge Thomas E. Johnston in the Southern District of West Virginia, to Assistant Solicitor General for the State of West Virginia. While still early in her career, she’s had the opportunity to intervene in injustice, such as by advocating for the First Amendment free-speech rights of Christians to publicly express their faith in the face of a discriminatory city ordinance. Jessica credits King’s for preparing her well for law school and for a career giving voice to the voiceless: “King’s helped me understand that ‘I can’t’ is never an option and that God has planted the will and the way inside of us to go the distance in whatever field we’re called to.”
The King’s College 2008; M.B.A. Fuqua School of Business at Duke University
After graduating from King’s, Kellen worked for eight years at PEI Funds, a New York investment fund. He then received his M.B.A. from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and has continued to move forward in the world of business. He values the politics, philosophy, and economics core that King’s requires as well as its setting in New York City. “I learned how to think critically and communicate clearly, and I sharpened my skills working alongside incredibly talented people in the City.”
The King’s College 2010; Filmmaker and Co-Founder of We Are Films
The co-founder of video production company We Are Films, Aaron has directed videos for Sufjan Stevens, the Cold War Kids, Nike, Andy Mineo, Microsoft, Virgin Atlantic Airlines, Squarespace, RedBull, and many more. He also had a short film shown at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in France. Aaron says, “We’re always striving for excellence, but in a way that’s different: no shortcuts, no excuses, and no taking advantage of people. The film industry has a reputation for being cutthroat, backstabbing, and grueling. It’s true—especially in NYC—but it doesn’t have to be that way.”
The King’s College 2014; Measuring and Advancing Human Flourishing
“At first glance, you’d think evaluation and the humanities would have little to do with each other. Yet, both look at how people are shaped and influenced,” says Elisa Lambert, who took her Media, Culture, and the Arts degree from King’s into work at The Bowery Mission, where she created and evaluated program structures to enable teams to serve the community. More recently, she pursued a double master’s degree in Sociology and Public Administration at the University of Colorado. “There are some wounds which will never heal, at least in this life,” Elisa says, “But I want to protect who I can, do what I can, and heal what I can, anxiously awaiting Christ’s return.”
