What is Kingdom Builders
Kingdom Builders is a Radiant Church strategic initiative focused on the regional, national and global expansion of evangelism, outreach and mercy ministry. Whether it be building future campuses, planting new churches, sending missionaries to the nations, or caring for the poor, we believe that as Christians we are called to participate actively in the Great Commission by impacting the world and building the Kingdom of God in every sphere of society.
We have two primary strategic mechanisms in place for financially resourcing Kingdom Builders:
Our annual Big Give Offering. This special annual offering serves as the first-fruits of our community’s investment in all our Kingdom Builders initiatives.
Ongoing financial partnership. By filling out a commitment card, you have the opportunity to pledge a consistent amount of financial support through- out the year that will be solely used to fund all our Kingdom Builders initiatives.

2019 Investment Opportunities
Woods Lake Elementary
Woods Lake Elementary is a Kalamazoo public school with approximately 640 students enrolled. Of those children, 85% are on a free or reduced lunch program. Simply put, this means that 85% of the school’s students come from families living at or below the poverty line. For many of these students and their families, the challenges they face outweigh the resources they have available to meet their everyday needs.
We will be investing $150,000 of this year’s Big Give offering in the students and families from Wood’s Lake Elementary School. The money we invest will be used to purchase brand new winter gear for every student enrolled at Woods Lake. For many of these children, this will be the first time they have ever owned new, appropriately-sized, high-quality coats, boots, gloves and hats.

Founded in 1987, One Hope is a global ministry that reaches thousands of young people around the world with the gospel through film, storytelling, and mobile apps.
The Lumière Project is one of the key initiatives that One Hope is engaged in to spread the gospel to unreached young people in west Africa. Over the course of the next five years, the Lumière Project will plant over 3,000 churches across 10 French-speaking African countries. We want to see every child and family in the French-speaking nations of African encounter the transformative love of Jesus Christ.

Radiant Church Expansion
We are one church in multiple locations, and we’re praying, believing for, and working towards complete city transformation. We believe that in the years to come, we will see a historical revival in our city, and that 100,000 souls will be saved. We believe that our next step in pursuing this goal is to establish a Radiant Church campus in the heart of downtown Kalamazoo.
Our expansion to downtown will provide us with facilities for centralized church operations in the region, a fully equipped prayer room, and a gathering space that serves for equipping, training, services and more.
