Venue & Location

Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, KS

Church of the Resurrection recently opened its permanent sanctuary – a beautiful, sacred space for worship and community. Come and experience Leadership Institute 2017 in this historic space.

Church of the Resurrection began in 1990 with a dream of being a church where thoughtful people who were not actively involved in church might become followers of Jesus Christ, grow in their faith, find meaningful relationships, and be sent out each week, inspired to serve God by serving others. The church began with four people. Today more than 11,000 people find hope, meaning and purpose each week at Resurrection.

Church of the Resurrection has four locations in the Kansas City area: Leawood, KS; Olathe, KS; Downtown Kansas City, MO; and Blue Springs, MO. Each location offers unique ministries within its own community, but every location shares a unified vision and heartbeat.

We are delighted to host Leadership Institute 2017 in our newly opened permanent sanctuary. To learn more about this space built to serve the church and community for generations to come, visit
