Student Leaders

Residence Assistants (RAs) are student leaders who live on each floor of the tower and the apartments. RAs are trained to support residents at King’s. It is their job to organize events, handle relationship disputes, and ultimately, ensure that everything is running smoothly on each floor.

Ministry Assistants (MAs) are student leaders whose role is to encourage spiritual growth on campus. These student leaders lead small groups, bible studies, service projects, and help plan regular campus worship.
