The King’s University is an accredited, evangelical university based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of north Texas.


In September of 1997, classes began at The King’s College and Seminary in Los Angeles, California. For years, The King’s University was the only accredited Pentecostal/Charismatic postsecondary institution in Los Angeles, and the King’s Seminary was the only accredited Pentecostal/Charismatic seminary on the West Coast of North America.[citation needed]

Throughout the first decade, The King’s continued to expand and grow by planting new extension campuses across the nation in conjunction with several local churches. In 2009, Gateway Church entered the picture when their founding senior pastor, Robert Morris, decided to involve the congregation.[citation needed]

Gateway partnered with The King’s University in California to create a branch campus in Southlake, Texas. In 2013, The King’s received approval for the relocation of their main campus from Van Nuys, California, to Southlake, Texas. This new central campus for The King’s was officially dedicated on November 14, 2013. This new beginning represented the culmination of a multi-year planning process that was first birthed in the heart of Dr. Robert Morris (who also serves as Chairman of the Board of Trustees for The King’s University) and is an extension of the very close relationship that exists between Dr. Robert Morris and Dr. Jack Hayford.[citation needed]

Currently, the university offers more than 20 accredited vocational ministry degree plans including undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees. In the near future, the school anticipates adding several new degrees in other disciplines of study, including an undergraduate degree in business and a master’s degree in both counseling and strategic leadership.[citation needed]


The King's University currently offers undergraduate and graduate certificates, associate's, bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees. TKU offers students the flexibility to customize course schedules. Students can take daytime or evening courses on-ground, online or a combination of the two.


The King’s University is accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) (15935 Forest Road, Forest, Virginia, 24551, 804.525.9539) at the Category IV level (through the first professional doctorate level) and by the Commission on Accreditation of the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) (5850 T.G. Lee Boulevard, Orlando, Florida 32822, 407.207.0808). Both the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools and the Association of Biblical Higher Education are members of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).[citation needed]

The Institution is listed in the current edition of both The American Council on Education’s Accredited Institutions of Postsecondary Education and in the Higher Education directory. The Institution is acknowledged on the United States Department of Education website as an accredited postsecondary institution and participates in the United States Department of Education Title IV Program, which offers students access to Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunities Grants, and the Stafford Education loan programs. The King’s University has been authorized to participate in the Montgomery GI Bill Veteran’s Benefits program and the Southlake, TX, and Van Nuys, CA, campuses are approved to enroll international students.[citation needed]
