Pastor Rose M. King is the Senior Pastor of Christian Outreach Center where she is continuing with the vision of the church started by her husband, the founding Pastor, Johnny R. King. God gave them the vision to reach people of all ethnicities and backgrounds, regardless of denomination, with the uncompromising Word of God.
Pastor Rose, a native Texan, was called to the ministry over 25 years ago. She received her Bachelors of Arts & Science degree in Elementary Education from Prairie View A & M University, graduating along with her husband.
Pastor Rose worked in Fort Worth public schools, served as a Curriculum Planner and was involved in various training sessions and workshops. After thirteen and one half years, she resigned to enter into full-time ministry to assist her husband. She continued her education and ministerial development at Word of Faith Leadership & Bible Institute. She is a Certified Christian Counselor and has been a guest speaker at several churches in the Metroplex and abroad.
Pastor King ministers the uncompromising Word of God and has taken the mantle to lead God’s people in the fullness of Him. Her heart is to obey God, and to develop His people to reach their destiny in life, by teaching and training them in the principles of the Word, and to see the lost come to the Kingdom of God.
She was married to Pastor Johnny R. King on October 17, 1965 and worked alongside him in the ministry until he went home to be with the Lord in November of 2001. She is the mother of two children, a son, Assistant Pastor Jamil King and a daughter, Rachel King. Pastor Rose is also the proud grandmother of Pastor Jamil and Erika’s sons, Jamil II, Jonathan Ray and Jeremiah.
Recently, she was blessed with a granddaughter born on her 71st birthday, March 12, 2013. Pastor Jamil and Erika honored her by naming their first daughter, Jayla Rose.
Building strong families is a part of the church’s vision. Pastor Rose invests much time in her family as well as the families at Christian Outreach Center.
