Kentucky is known as the "Bluegrass State", a nickname based on the bluegrass found in many of its pastures because of the fertile soil. It is a land with diverse environments and abundant resources, including the world's longest cave system, Mammoth Cave National Park, the greatest length of navigable waterways and streams in the contiguous United States, and the two largest man-made lakes east of the Mississippi River.
During a Minister’s Conference held on April 6, 1953 a petition was signed by eighteen ministers requesting that Kentucky to be established and organized as a District of the United Pentecostal Church International. The following year the Kentucky District U.P.C.I. was formed and recognized.
In the early 1970’s, the Kentucky District was divided into six sections as U-N-I-T-E-D symbolizing the state’s motto, “United we stand, divided we fall.” The district supports and conducts many annual events for our members, both young and old, and there is a great spirit of fellowship among our ministers and churches. You will find a very friendly atmosphere and mutual respect of each other, along with a spirit of unity in our district.
Welcome to our website, and we encourage you to visit each department of the Kentucky District through the means of this page. It has been a pleasure to serve the Kentucky District since 2005 as District Superintendent, serving 190 ministers and 98 churches. We appreciate your visit to our site today!
