WHAT IS

Kingdom Builders

The Waters Church was started as a missions project causing missions to be part of our DNA.  God spoke to many people's hearts and out of generosity, they gave. We know that God has put us in the Sartell area, in this nation, and in our world for a very clear purpose:  TO BECOME KINGDOM BUILDERS.

We have an urgency and mandate to reach people with the life changing message of Jesus Christ.  In doing so, we build God’s amazing kingdom. The Bible tells us in Acts 1:8 that we are to be witnesses and to proclaim the good news of Jesus here, there, and everywhere.

Kingdom Builders is our mission to help spread the hope of Jesus here, there, and everywhere. Jesus clearly commissions us in Matthew 28 to go into all the world and share His message.

God’s heart is for people. Our desire is not to just receive funds, but to see people's lives changed.  It is about each and every person that God loves, and together we can make a difference.  It is not about what you can do on your own; it’s about what we can do together.  We believe that the heart of God is that every one of us would become a “KINGDOM BUILDER.”

THE FIRST 10%
-------

We have been intentionally striving to keep our eyes outside of our church walls. We believe that if we continue to put our focus on reaching others and building His kingdom, God will take care of us. As an effort to "put our money where our mouth is," we have commited to give the first 10% of all non-designated offerings to Kingdom Builders. As the faithfulness and generosity of the people of the The Waters Church continues, we have commited to direct these funds to three core areas of missions through monthly support.

LOCAL ----- 22 HERE

In Matthew 5, Jesus tells us that the local church is the light of the world. We are meant to shine bright in our area. We have committed to support 22 local missionaries, organizations, and initiatives every month. Our desire is to be the light and to be front runners leading the pack in support of our local ministries.

NATIONAL ----- 14 THERE

God has blessed this great nation and the Bible tells us that to whom much is given, much is required. We have committed to support 14 ministries and organizations across this nation to ensure that “In God we Trust” can be a reality. As culture changes, we must prioritize spreading the love of Christ in our nation.

Kingdom Builders Teams are a way to go and be the hands and feet on the ground and literally build God’s Kingdom. The Great Commission in scripture says "Go into the world and make disciples of all nations..." KB Teams at The Waters are a means to "GO" serve together and share the Good News of Christ locally, nationally and globally.  This year people from The Waters will give of their own time and raise their own funds to be on a Kingdom Builders Team.

SMITH FAMILY

KINGDOM BUILDERS STORY

Our mission trip to Tree Top Farm was an amazing experience for our family! Going into it, we didn't know what to expect but had open minds and were ready to work. We ended up sharing a beautiful time with others that truly show the love of God. We built fences, made outdoor structures, played some hoops, and experienced family farm life. The way that everyone worked together to make everything go smoothly was exactly what is meant by "Many hands make light work" and that is one of the main values that was taught to the kids. Serving others with other people that are excited to serve is something that we were able to have our kids experience. This is something that was life changing and much needed, in a time where negativity and ugliness is so magnified in our lives.

Tony and his family have dedicated their lives to show young kids that otherwise might not get to experience the value of a family, a foundation built on love, God, and positivity. The gratitude that their family showed us, for the help that we did, was genuine and heartfelt. We would encourage families to give this mission opportunity a shot and share in the love that this awesome family is giving to young people of East Central Minnesota.

How will these projects get funded?

These projects only get funded by the over-and-above giving to Kingdom Builders. When you give to Kingdom Builders, God’s amazing Kingdom expands. To set up recurring giving to Kingdom Builders go to thewaterschurch.net.

What about the Tithe?

At The Waters Church, we believe that the Bible challenges Christ-followers to be generous and tithe (10%) of their income to their local church.  Kingdom Builders is above and beyond our tithe and is generous and sacrificial giving that God lays on our hearts to change the world.

What if I have other questions?

We would love to answer any questions you may have. Please email kb@thewaterschurch.net. For a complete list of missionaries, organizations, and initiatives supported by The Waters Church visit thewaterschurch.net/kingdombuilders.
