STAFFORD, NJ - Over the years, King of Kings Community Church has had a strong impact on the Southern Ocean County area.  The church is a member of the Christian and Missionary Alliance and they now are in a stage of "redevelopment." 

The new pastor is Bob Nash.  Bob was first a big part of the initial King of Kings Community Church in the early nineties. 

"My life was a mess.  I walked into King of Kings Community Church and there was only a small group of people that were meeting there at the time.  Through the love and grace of Jesus Christ, God used the people to help me find Jesus and see my life transformed," Pastor Nash said.  "Someone once told me that messed up people mess up other people and that hurt people hurt people.  When that is going on you need to break that cycle.  If you find yourself in that type of cycle, it is time for a fresh start."

Bob Nash was a big part of the initial King of Kings team.  He and his wife Val has a passion for leading people to Jesus and they do that by starting new churches.  

King of Kings was making a great impact and Pastor Bob, his wife Val and Pastor Steve Hartman, his wife Sandi ventured out and began the Lighthouse Alliance Community Church in Tuckerton.  That church continues to be led by Pastor Steve and Sandi Hartman.  Lighthouse Alliance is located on the corner of Route 9 and Giffordtown Road in Tuckerton.

Nash is a pioneer.  When Lighthouse was on strong footing, Bob and Val ventured out to assist in a new church in Forked River.  They then went out and started Building on the Rock Church in Lakehurst, NJ.  

That church has had great success and been a training center for ministry leaders.  This congregation through Nash's leadership has helped establish churches overseas, especially in France.  In fact, Pastor Bob and Val are in France helping in the leadership of a number of churches.  The congregation in Lakehurst has started a number of new churches in New Jersey also.  

"King of Kings has fallen on some difficult times and it is time for a fresh start," said Nash.  It certainly appears he is the man to lead the charge in revitalizing this congregation.  

The church has dinner and a worship service every Saturday night at 6 p.m.  Everyone is invited.  There has been much healing taking place for everyone.  Many people who used to attend King of Kings are attending and are encouraged.  

"So excited to see the amazing work God is doing at my old church King of Kings...No better thing in life than give it all to the Lord," said Marcia DeOliveira Longinetti.  "I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the wonderful works of His Holy Spirit!!!"

The "redevelopment" of this church appears to be succeeding.
