Who is a Kingdom Builder?

Dear RiverCity Church,

We have a lot to be proud of! We have done a lot for missions in the past 7 years of our mission’s program. We have supported career missionaries, sent out many of our own missionaries on short-term trips, built four homes in Mexico, supported humanitarian projects, cared for the homeless and supported prison ministry.  In the past 7 year RiverCity has given nearly $300,000 to missions.  

This year I am introducing a new approach to our mission’s program called Kingdom Builders. The goal of Kingdom Builders is to hit 1 million dollars given to missions and building expansion by 2025. Kingdom Builders is inclusive of anything we do to expand the kingdom of God, at home or abroad. We are combining our missions program and our building program because the two are inseparably connected. As we grow at home our missions impact also grows.
A Kingdom Builder is someone who:

-Understands the importance of Kingdom expansion

-Desires for their life to count for kingdom purpose

-Is willing to strategically, consistently & sacrificially commit to give to kingdom advancement

On this page, is a list of all our 2018 Kingdom Builder projects and our 2018 building fund goal. The only way to meet this goal is through your ongoing giving. On the offering envelope, you can choose the Kingdom Builder option to contribute.  You can also designate to missions or building fund to specifically direct your money.  I encourage you to commit to be a world changer and Kingdom Builder as we impact the world together.

Henry and Ivonne arrived with no more than a prayer, two tarps, and a few volunteers to one of the unreached slums of Guayaquil, Ecuador.

As with most slums, there is no running water, electricity is stolen, rampant crime and drugs, extreme poverty, and the majority are single parent homes.

Facility Acquisition

I am setting a lofty goal of raising $120,000 for a building purchase. It seems to be an impossible number, but it is time to get aggressive in our pursuit of a facility purchase. This is a faith number! It may be met by a big gift, a series of big gifts or disciplined monthly giving. As our church grows our kingdom impact grows! Help invest into the future of RiverCity Church.
