Who are Kingdom Builders?
Kingdom Builders are people, focusing on, praying for, and giving financially to see growth in the Kingdom of God. If you give generously to see His kingdom grow, you are a Kingdom Builder.
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 on a college campus, and your neighbor across the street. Kingdom Builders exists to lead lost and vulnerable people to 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.
THE TITHE IS ABOUT OBEDIENCE.
KINGDOM BUILDERS IS ABOUT GENEROSITY.
We practice the Old Testament model of 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. From the tithe, we give 10% to Kingdom Builders to provide for our monthly missionary support.
When you give to Kingdom Builders in addition to the tithe, you are practicing generosity. Kingdom Builders extends our impact in Leading People to Jesus beyond our personal reach. Together we can build churches in NJ and around the world. Together we can feed and shelter thousands of vulnerable people. Together we can ensure that the story of Jesus has a future in the next generation(s). Together we are Building the Kingdom of Jesus Christ around the world.
