Knollwood Community Church (KCC) exists to exalt God and reflect the glory of Christ by declaring His Truth, sharing His love, and caring for His people. This church wants to invest up to $10k in someone who agrees in Spirit (“KCC Core Values“), can become a partner, and can help build capacity within God’s kingdom. Now, before you go and send an email or get on the phone, take a deep breath; KCC is not soliciting proposals at this juncture:
Process: Over the next few months (Jun/Jul), KCC is inviting the Body to pray/dialogue with God and with others … to ask, seek, and knock. When you feel God has revealed an idea/suggestion, go ahead and share it as a comment to this blog post. Later this summer (Aug), after reviewing and selecting some of the submitted ideas/suggestions, detailed proposals will be solicited. After a vetting process (Sep), the KCC congregation will cast a vote and make their decision. If they are unable to discern God’s will, they might simply roll these funds over into the next budget cycle. It’s all about seeking God’s will through prayer/dialogue, letting the Holy Spirit speak/guide, and ensuring that God receives all the glory.
Possibilities/Opportunities: Should these funds be dispersed in increments so more will benefit? Would it be better for one person to receive one lump sum gift? Should these funds serve as “seed” money to help kick-start someone’s Godly vision? Should an existing ministry use these funds to take that ministry to the next level? Could a Godly couple suddenly be able to adopt that child that they’ve always wanted? Could a church be planted? Hmm…these are some of my thoughts – I wonder what ideas will come to your heart and mind? The key is for the Body to have “eyes that see and ears that hear”.
What is God saying to you? Pray/dialogue and then post your comment. I’m expecting some powerful, creative ideas!
