“Flooding in Australia”

January 17, 2011

John Hutchinson read the Kingdom Assignment in 2002 John a Pastor in Perth, Australia that we first met when he challenged his congregation to live the KIngdom Assignment life even though he had no money to give the very poor church he Pastored. Two days later he began opening his mail and received a letter that was anonymous saying they wanted to do a KA in their community. Unsure of what that meant he began to open the rest of the mail when he came upon a package. When he opened it 100 dollar bills came pouring out. $10,000 dollars in all.


“Hopeful Hearts embraces youth, families grieving lost loved ones”

September 13, 2010

I’m a member of Grace United Methodist Church and Pastor Brad Lauster, who is the pastor there, asked my husband and I if we would be participants in something called a Kingdom Assignment. They get members of the parish community to accept a challenge. They give about 25 parishioners a 100 dollar bill with three stipulations: 1. That it is God’s money; 2. that you go out into the community and do something good with the money; and 3. that you report back to the church the results.

So when we decided to accept the Kingdom Assignment and thought about what we could do for our project, during that time out community lost a couple of teenage boys to suicide and a lot of the local teens were grieving, and families and my husband and I were trying to think of ways to help the teens get through this grief. So, we were aware of the Highmark Caring Place in Pittsburgh that supports grieving children and has for the past 15 years now. Our first thought was it would be great if Indiana had a similar program here to offer support to children who are grieving so the families wouldn’t have to make the travel to Pittsburgh and we would have a local program. So we decided that that would be our Kingdom Assignment.


“Pepsi Refresh Project: Hi from the Bellesi's - Kingdom Assignment :)”

September 9, 2010

My name is Holly Harmon. A couple of years ago, I was given $100 from my church as part of the Kingdom Assignment Challenge. God laid on my heart to open a temporary shelter for families to be able to use for free after the devastating loss of their home through fire or other tragedies. We have been working in the last two years, to set our not for profit organization up, board members, bylaws, etc. We want to make sure we create something that goes beyond us.

We have been given a house by the City of Madison. It has been abandoned for 8 years, so it needs work.


“Look at what good a dollar can do!

September 8, 2010

Hi! My name is Jaelee and I would like to share how your challenge, by giving us a dollar to further God's Kingdom,  has worked for God’s will through my youth group!  

At the Purpose Driven Youth Ministry Leadership Conference at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest we were each given a dollar.  My youth decided to do something big…but we never thought it would end up being something this big!


“Building the kingdom $100 at a time”

August 23, 2010
By RJ Walters, Editor

Just as the parable of the mustard seed is about the potential of a towering tree, it was the discreet slip of an envelope that opened people's eyes to the marvels of God's work at Ypsilanti First United Methodist Church.

Through several projects dubbed the Kingdom Assignments and with the help of numerous partnerships, the congregation has raised more than $375,000 for local people and programs since 2006.

And now Ypsilanti FUMC Rev. Melanie Carey and her colleagues are spreading the wealth through knowledge and grants, hoping other churches will jump on board with an initiative that has transformed the way some Methodists view outreach.


“The CPC Kingdom Assignment ... golf balls for Bulgaria”

August 17, 2010

After much prayer and family discussion, we decided to use our Kingdom Assignment to raise money to feed the children of Bulgaria.

Each year for the past 7 years our children have been blessed to attend our fantastic VBS at CPC. They have a wonderful time and look forward to it each year. But at the same time, we have mixed emotions as money is collected to put on a much simpler and much more sparse version for the poor in Bulgaria and to supply each family a bag of food staples to help them through the season. This year we thought we could use our Kingdom Assignment to do more to help these children. Our kids really wanted to participate, and this was something we could all get involved in and excited about. Our dear friends, the Garrett's, joined us as well.


“Serve the suffering .... www.Project2540.com ”

Feb 15, 2010

My name is Trog Trogdon and I am the author of the Kingdom Motivated Blog ..... I recognized your name as the author of one of my favorite books, The Kingdom Assignment and wanted to say thank you for writing it.  

Your book impacted me so much that a friend of mine (J.T. Patton) and I started www project2540.com the week after I read your book.  It was a simply concept... to raise awareness for Compassion International (specifically for sponsoring children) and World Vision (for animal donations.)  To date, we have raised over $8250 for World Vision and 7 children have been sponsored through Compassion.  We wouldn't have even thought of doing this without reading your book!  We praise God for your hearts.

“Kingdom Assignment raises money for United Way”

Feb 15, 2010

Thirty groups of students from Ursuline College and its elementary partner schools have turned $3,000 in seed money into a $16,397.95 contribution to the United Way of Chatham-Kent.

The 2010 Kingdom Assignment saw each group receiving $100 through a donation to United Way from Paul Wubben, St. Clair Catholic District School Board director.

The students then took the money and used it in a variety of ways to help raise more money for the cause.

Their projects ranged from bake sales and raffles to buying warm toques and hats and donating them to the Salvation Army.

This is the second year for the Kingdom Assignment which to date has raised almost $32,000.

"This tremendous contribution is a demonstration of the mission of Catholic education and the difference it makes in the lives of our students and our communities," said Wubben in a news release. "The Kingdom Assignment is just one of the ways in which our school communities seek to be the hands and feet of Christ as we serve those who need our help."


“Kingdom Assignment: Mission Support to Congo”

Feb 10, 2010

On January 17th, 24 volunteers accepted an assignment to invest $100 in God’s Kingdom.  There were 5 youth in that group!  Each week in Lent one of them will be sharing during the children's message a little bit about their project.  Our first presenter is in 6th grade and here is his story about his kingdom assignment.
Dear friends in Christ,

I thought about it for a while and thought that my number one goal was to get as many people as possible to help out on my Kingdom Assignment. Then shortly after, I got an email from my Uncle Chuck telling me about his project. My uncle is a missionary. After praying, I decided to help him out and get him the money he needs to make this mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo possible. I am donating the $100 that I got from the kingdom assignment and $20 of my own at age eleven to this project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.


“Kingdom Assignment 2 Launch at Fair Haven Ministries"

Feb 11, 2010

There was truly a lump in my throat and a sense of being overwhelmed as 516 people came forward this past Sunday morning representing 360 commitments to participate in Kingdom Assignment2. It was amazing to see the Holy Spirit at work in hearts and lives as we responded to His prompting.

With great expectation, I am looking forward to how God will affirm our actions and multiply our commitments in the days ahead.

Colossians 3:15

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."

Scripture reminds us to be thankful for those who have been such a blessing in our lives.

During this Thanksgiving we are grateful to God for Him bringing us the blessing of you. May God richly bless your family during these Holydays!
