About TKU

The King’s University (TKU) is an accredited, Spirit-empowered, evangelical university located in Southlake, Texas. 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 of The King’s University, and Pastor Robert Morris, lead senior pastor of Gateway Church, forged a distinctive partnership in their time together. Prior to his passing, Dr. Hayford served as an apostolic elder of Gateway Church, and Pastor Robert continues to serve The King’s University as chancellor. Rooted in their mutual commitment to excellence and professionalism, both leaders aspired to equip individuals for Kingdom service wherever God gives them influence. This collective vision formed The King’s University at Gateway Church.

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.
