“to turn heads and hearts into the hands and feet of Christ”.
To use Kingdom Assignment stewardship principles to encourage others to use their God given Talents, Treasures and Time by advancing God’s Kingdom globally beyond every generational, ethnic and faith boundary with the love of Jesus Christ.
It all started the weekend of November 4th, 2000 in Aliso Viejo California. Pastor Denny Bellesi and his wife Leesa shocked the congregation of Coast Hills Community Church by asking for one hundred volunteers and then handing each person a crisp one hundred dollar bill. The Bellesi’s had thought about doing this for years, but never found the right timing.
Well the time had come… While preparing a message on stewardship, Denny allotted $10,000 from the church missions fund in order to give his congregationan assignment they would never forget. “Take this $100 and multiply it” Denny told the nervous recipients. Reminding them that the money was not theirs, but God’s, and challenging them to do something extraordinary for the kingdom In the following months, success stories poured in; from supporting the homeless to starting a home for battered women.
Each story was an amazing story of faith and hope that touched not only the giver but also everyone involved in the assignment. Kingdom Assignment has now become a worldwide movement touching thousands and inspiring individuals, organizations and ministries across the globe to use their talents, time, and treasures to do extraordinary things for the kingdom.
Each of us has an assignment… What’s yours?
"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!
