Welcome to Kairos, the youth work of the Sword of the Spirit.


To bring as many young people as possible into full human and spiritual maturity, and to partner with Christian communities to accomplish these goals.


Kairos is a Greek word that means the “right or opportune moment”; in the New Testament, it means “the appointed time in the purpose of God”—the time when God acts and we respond. Kairos, for an individual, is that time when God presents decisions that have life-long effects.

Youth live in a Kairos time: a time when they set their moral standards, consider a religious vocation, choose a career, and find an eventual marriage partner. Most importantly, youth live in a time when they decide whether to make an adult decision to follow Jesus Christ. It is the time when they can decide to give The Lord all of their lives for the rest of their lives.

Kairos is also a special season when God’s grace is available. We are in a particular season of grace right now: a Kairos in which God is raising up a generation of young people who will fully commit their lives to him and take a stand for the glory of His name.


Kairos is the family of youth and collegiate outreaches related through the Sword of the Spirit. The Sword of the Spirit is an international, ecumenical association of Christian communities. These communities are not themselves churches; rather, organizations that support church-going singles and families in striving after a radical Christian way of life.

Kairos is intended to have an identity somewhat separate from the Sword of the Spirit (and so a different name) while still clearly being of the Sword of the Spirit—thus a common logo.
