Kingdom Assignments!

This past Sunday we heard the stories of 30 people who were given a $100 Kingdom Assignment. Our theme came from Amos 5:24 - But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!

It will be one of my favorite Sundays ever! Watch for the article about it in the RB Journal, Poway Chieftain, and CMR Corridor. Here's some highlights.

In 6 short weeks, $3000 became over $12,000 invested in Kingdom causes. 2 hours one Sunday (explaining the assignment) became over 600 hours invested in service (And this is only so far - many volunteer hours continue).

And God used the people of GVC to reach places like:

  • Tanzania
  • Slovakia
  • Russia
  • Mali
  • Building wells for fresh water in Africa
  • A San Diego inner city Fellowship of Christian Athletes Club
  • Families in need within our church
  • Couples' Conference Scholarship
  • Rancho Penasquitos Food Bank
  • Moms in Touch
  • Operation Christmas Child
  • Christian College Tuition
  • San Diego Youth Crisis Center
  • American Cancer Society
  • World Vision Famine Relief
  • Iraqi Children's Clinic
  • St. Jude's
  • Life Choices
  • World Hunger
  • Famine Relief
  • Creation Care
  • A 9 yr. old girl with cancer
  • etc.

Well done...
