Definition Kingdom A$

Definition Kingdom Assignment: Creative strategy to catapult congregations to become externally focused.

Who? Ordinary individuals.

Why? To touch your community for Jesus Christ.

How? One act of kindness at a time.

When? A term first coined by the Christian community approximately ten years ago, then introduced to the Adventist church by David Jamieson, a Canadian-Adventist pastor.

Method? Members are given assignments and money to GROW ministries.

"The creativity, enthusiasm and freedom, our members displayed when they discovered that Kingdom Assignments was not a program— but that they could serve God within their own unique talents and personalities, was absolutely amazing. Lives continue to be touched and blessed because of those partnerships with God on behalf of His children. I pray this type of partnering with God will begin to consume our lives. It truly gives meaning to the verse that says, 'My yoke is easy and my burden is light' (Matt. 11:10). The Lord is incredible!" — Rhonda Whitney, Oregon Conference Community Outreach director.
