FUTURE OUR CITY CAMPUSES
Kingdom Builders is committed to funding the growth of the local church through expanding Our City campuses & planting other life-giving churches in our communities.
We would love to have a permanent space to call home. Part of Kingdom Builders efforts will go toward wisely stewarding the resources and timing of creating permanent locations for Our City Church.
We want to bring a digital Our City Church experience to the online space. We want people everywhere to have access to the ministry and message of our church, even if we don’t have a campus in their specific community yet.
PLAN. VISION. DREAM.
How do you make a commitment for Kingdom Builders? Raising $250,000 in 2020 requires a generous sacrifice from all of us. Some giving sacrificially and others giving from great abundance.
First, make a plan to give. When you have plans and are diligent, it leads to plenty (Proverbs 21:15). God is excited when you have a plan! Whatever the amount is—have a plan in place, work the plan and be obedient with it. Start there.
Next, ask God to give you a vision for what He could do through you with His help. This is beyond what you alone can do. This requires you to take a step of faith. Additionally, Habakkuk 2:2 tells us to write that vision down and pray about it! God will supply all your needs according to His riches in Jesus Christ (Philippians 4:19). Stepping out in faith praises God!
Lastly, what could be a dream amount you could give? Hold on to it. This number is only between you and God. Watch as each step of faith you take, God moves you closer to that dream. God can do exceedingly abundantly more than all we can ask for or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).
While there will be hundreds of people giving to Kingdom Builders in 2020, always remember—every gift matters to God. It’s not the size of the gift, but the obedience to God’s voice that matters most.
Plan to give, ask God for a vision in your generosity, and hold on to the dream of what God will do as you step out in faith!
