Vision Statement

From the National Website: “Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision as Daughters of the King® is to know Jesus Christ, to make Him known to others, and to become reflections of God’s love throughout the world.”

Who We Are

The Order of the Daughters of the King® (DOK) is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service, and Evangelism. We make a commitment to Jesus as our Savior, and we follow Him as our Lord. We are an Order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church. Our membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches.

We are an Order, not a group or organization. An Order is a community under a religious rule; one requiring members to take solemn vows. We don’t just enroll as members and attend meetings; we take lifelong vows to follow the Rules of Prayer and Service. The Order of the Daughters of the King® was founded by Margaret J. Franklin at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in New York City in 1885.

If you are interested in becoming a Daughter, or would just like more information, please contact Kristle Evans,  We would love you to explore the possibility of a Chapter at your parish!
