"We are blessed to be a blessing"

Pastor Rob Ketterling

2017 Goal: $6,000,000

We begin each year by prayerfully seeking what role God wants us to play in building His kingdom. The Bible shows us that Jesus gave all He had to reach the lost, and that there is no greater love than this. He asks us not to hold back in our own sacrifice for the Kingdom. Our focuses this year are missionary support, church planting, next generation, pastoral training and positioning our campuses for growth and outreach. We are so excited at what God has in store for 2017 through Kingdom Builders! Below are the ministries we will invest our efforts in this year.

2017 is a big year for us as we put out a stretch goal that goes way beyond what is normal and way beyond what we’ve ever done before, believing that God wants us to grow Kingdom Builders to another level. I’m praying that as we look at the gap before us there is a spirit within us that can close the gap and lead the way!

Thank you for making the sacrifce to be a Kingdom Builder and thank you for believing that God has so much more for us to do to change this world for His glory!

Global Missions

In Mark 16, Jesus commands us to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to ALL of creation. River Valley gives 10% of the general tithe to missionaries and missions organizations. As of January 2017, 268 are being financially supported. Through Kingdom Builders, we are able to surpass these benchmarks every year and give above and beyond. Kingdom Builders also gives us the opportunity to support key missions projects such as providing vehicles and humanitarian aid, church planting, resources, and pastoral development. Everyone, in every nation, deserves a chance to hear the Gospel.

Local Church Expansion

In Matthew 5, Jesus tells us the local church is the light of the world. Kingdom Builders is committed to funding the growth of the church locally through expanding our own campuses, planting life-giving, Spirit-filled churches in our communities, and ministering to the hurting in our own backyards. We do not do this for comfort, fancy buildings, or praise, but for the purpose of making a space for those not yet here to personally know a loving, Heavenly Father.

Edina Area Campus Expansion

One of our fastest growing campuses also happens to be one of our newest. Our Edina Area Campus was instrumental in launching our Minneapolis Campus, and yet it continues to burst at the seams! It is time to get them a new building. God has provided a location off of Crosstown. This strategic location will allow the campus to be called the Crosstown Campus and reach into many communities. We believe this campus will double as soon as we move in, and we can’t move in soon enough.
Goal Amount: $1,500,000

Future Christian Leaders

We would risk everything for the next generation because they are the church now–and the church of the future. In 1 Timothy, Paul writes to the young leader, Timothy, encouraging him to set the example in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity. Kingdom Builders believes in coming alongside our future Christian leaders to foster a love for the Bible, God, and the lost. Our Kingdom Builders partnerships work with organizations that care for the physical and spiritual needs of our future leaders from birth through those beginning their careers. We want the next generation to serve, give, and love more.
