Pastor Kendall Franklin
Kendall began as Lead Pastor at WLCC on March 15, 2020 (right before the COVID-19 Pandemic… a fascinating way to begin a new ministry) His passion is to encourage and help folks to simply LOVE GOD and LOVE PEOPLE. He is amazed that he has been entrusted to share Good News continually.
Kendall is married to Denise, his life and ministry partner, who is a Doula (a labor and delivery coach). Together, they have three grown sons, three tremendous daughters-in-law, and three amazing grandchildren. He really enjoys being “Pampa” (pronounced Pam-Paw) to two granddaughters and one grandson. Both Kendall and Denise love the grand-parenting gig! They live in Wichita with their overly social dog, Baxter.
Kendall enjoys being with family, travel (especially to any place with mountains or beaches), reading or watching a great story, watching all kinds of sports, and hunting for his golf ball[s]. And, even though he resides in Chiefs Kingdom, he is an avid and unashamed Denver Broncos fan.
Kendall has been a Lead Pastor for over 30 years, serving in Arizona, Illinois, and Kansas.
