KINGDOM BUILDERS

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 9 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 9 year RiverCity has given over 400,000  dollars to missions.  

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 have combined 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 Kingdom Builder projects. 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.
