“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
Kingdom Builders is a Kingdom funding strategy to intentionally use the resources that God has entrusted to us to carry out the mission He has made us responsible for. We believe that every Christ follower is responsible for helping to fulfill and fund the Great Commission, and Kingdom Builders is one way we can practically work together to see His Kingdom impact the world we live in. Every dollar given through Kingdom Builders will be used to reach people who have not yet made a decision to follow Jesus by investing in Global Missions, Home Missions, Local Expansion and Future Christian Leaders.
As we plan to take on projects and make an impact, it is helpful to know who is partnering with us and how much they are planning to give. This information is only seen by our accounting department and no other staff members are informed of who is giving how much, only how much total has been pledged. If you haven’t filled out a commitment card yet and plan to be a part of Kingdom Builders, please use this digital commitment card.

We are responsible for reaching the lost here in our own community.

- Outreach Events: $15,000 (Pack the Back, Fallapalooza, Carroll College, etc.)
Future Christian Leaders $7,500
Because we are called to make disciples who will then make disciples, we want to be a part of funding the discipleship process of young people who are working toward God’s calling on their life. Through Kingdom Builders we want to partner with Teen Challenge through a Freedom Fund to see the addicted set free to pursue God’s call on their life. We also want to help students from Bridge Church get passionate for Global Missions by investing in a missions experience outside of the United States. Something transformational happens when we see the Gospel at work and the Kingdom expanding in other countries and cultures. In addition we would like to offer matching scholarships to students pursuing ministry at a Bible college or ministry school.
- Freedom Fund: $2,500
- Missions Trip Sponsorships for youth: $3,000
- Bible College/Ministry School Student Matching Scholarships: $2,000
“We pleaded with you, encouraged you, and urged you to live your lives in a way that God would consider worthy. For he called you to share in his Kingdom and glory.” 1 Thessalonians 2:12
Spirit Led Giving $10,000
We believe that in this season God is going to open opportunities to be generous and see the Kingdom expand in ways we can’t anticipate. By intentionally setting aside some funds, we can prepare ourselves to respond as God leads.
