The King's University


The King’s University (TKU) is an accredited, Spirit-empowered, evangelical university with branch campuses and teaching sites in multiple U.S. cities. TKU offers students a complete educational experience by combining higher education with practical ministry experience within dynamic local churches. This complete educational experience prepares and equips students to serve in the local church, the marketplace and around the world.

Dr. Jack Hayford, Founder and Chancellor of The King’s University, and Pastor Robert Morris, founding Senior Pastor of Gateway Church, have cultivated a unique partnership, in that Dr. Hayford serves as an apostolic elder of Gateway Church, and Pastor Robert currently serves as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for The King’s University. Dr. Hayford and Pastor Robert share the value of excellence and professionalism in their vision to train men and women for the work of the Kingdom wherever God gives them influence. This shared vision led to the creation of a TKU campus at Gateway Church.

With more than 700 students university-wide, and 270 students at the Southlake campus in DFW, TKU’s dynamic learning environment and Spirit-empowered community enable its students to learn, develop skills and talents, and grow in relationships with fellow students, faculty and with the Lord.
