KCOP Graduation & 2nd Year Anniversary
The graduation ceremony for the King’s College of Prophets Class of 2022 was held on Saturday, June 25, 2022, at Jesus My King in Shelby, NC. This was the 11th batch of KCOP, but it was the first batch to be conducted in the United States. Nine students received certificates of completion and 48 graduated with a Diploma in Prophetic Ministries. Students came from 11 different states (NC, SC, VA, AZ, MD, NY, NV, FL, KS, WI, CA).
The graduation festivities officially started Friday night, June 24th, with everyone receiving their prophetic activation along with each individual graduate receiving prayer and prophetic words from Dr. Steven Francis. It was a powerful and meaningful beginning to our graduation weekend.
The graduation ceremony felt more like a worship service as the Lord’s presence was tangible throughout. There were speeches from Dr. Steven Francis, guest speaker Bishop Michael Moore, and the valedictorian, Robyn Morris. In her speech, Sister Robyn stated the following:
I am so thankful to be part of a community where we are stretched and expected to go that extra mile in our discipleship. I was thinking about that this week, and the Lord spoke to me and said, “You can be a sellout…or you can be sold out.” The words seem so similar but have vastly different meanings. I looked up the slang meanings for both. A ‘sellout’ is someone who has compromised their integrity, morality, authenticity, or principles in exchange for personal gain or popularity. On the other hand, if a person is ‘sold out’ it means being completely committed, devoted, invested, and engaged to a cause. To have no reserves about the decision you are making. To be willing to go anywhere, do anything and give up everything to achieve your goal by any means necessary. I want to be known as a person who is completely sold out to Jesus. I believe that can be said for all the KCOP graduates. Some of these students traveled many miles every month and gave sacrificially of their time and money to be part of this class. You put me to shame. I just had to travel across town.
Sister Robyn ended her speech by encouraging her fellow graduates to mark this historic weekend down in the calendars. On Friday, June 24th, the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade; on Saturday, June 25th, KCOP graduated its first class in the US; and on Sunday, June 26th Jesus My King in Shelby celebrated its second anniversary.
One of the highights of the anniversary service was a dance done by the King’s Levites to the worship song, “Tribes.” The dance featured many of the ladies wearing clothes representing their different cultures. Several of the church’s members have moved here from states reaching all over America (i.e., California, New Jersey, Mississippi, Kentucky, New York, etc.). Many have come from much further—Singapore, Indonesia, India, Korea, and more. Jesus My King is truly a multicultural church where we find our common denominator in our mutual love for Jesus. We are united in Him. JMK serves as a picture and foreshadowing of the scene in Revelation 7, where a great multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, will stand before the throne and in front of the Lamb and worship Him as one! Hallelujah!
