What is Kingdom Builders?
Just for a moment, think about the person who first shared Jesus with you. Think about the difference it has made in your life. What has that relationship with Jesus meant to you? It has the hope and joy you have in Jesus, the forgiveness and righteousness promised to you. Your life and your eternity are changed because someone made Jesus known to you.
42% of the world has no access to the knowledge of Jesus. Over three billion people are unaware of the hope, love, and peace that is possible for them. Think of the one man in Turkey, the young woman in Colombia, and your neighbor across the street. Kingdom Builders exists for lost and vulnerable people. So that all may hear, and experience the love of Jesus.
Kingdom Builders exists to express over-and-above generosity at Pennington AG Church. We have seen the church rise up for individual needs when a need arises. Kingdom Builders is our way to become proactive and set our generosity goals on the great commission to help lead all people to Jesus Christ.
Kingdom Builders at Pennington AG Church encompasses this desire to reach people globally, to reach people locally, and to set up future Christian leaders to continue the fulfillment of this calling.
What happens when I give to Kingdom Builders?
At Pennington AG Church, we believe in the tithe—giving back to God the first 10% of our income. The tithe is used for the operations and the day-to-day ministry of Pennington AG Church as well as our monthly missionary support.
When you give to Kingdom Builders, above-and-beyond the tithe, we come together as the body of Christ. We each do our individual part to rise up and be a part of seeing new missions projects and outreach take place. The tithe is our obedience and it covers our missionary partners. Kingdom Builders is our generosity over our tithe to new projects that lead people to Jesus.
THE TITHE IS ABOUT OBEDIENCE.
KINGDOM BUILDERS IS ABOUT GENEROSITY.
