WAUKESHA, WI – God’s kingdom workers are to follow Jesus’ pattern. All Christians must be willing to do whatever it takes to respond to the Father’s love and share the Gospel message with others. The nonprofit organization, Kingdom Workers, follows that pattern and is an example for the rest of us who claim Jesus as our Savior and Lord.
Whatever it Takes
“We do whatever it takes to create encounters with the love and healing of Jesus.”
Kingdom Workers is a faith-based international ministry under the umbrella of the Confessional Evangelical Lutheran Conference. Their work is less country-based than community-based. That is to say, that, as they are made aware of the needs of communities and local churches, regardless of country, Kingdom Workers will respond, as they are able, to do whatever it takes to come alongside the beneficiaries of their labors and help to resolve issues at hand with innovative sustainable solutions.
According to the KingdomWorkers website, every solution, regardless of the location or situation, integrates three essential criteria.
- Everywhere we go, we work to meet the human needs of the people we serve, as identified by local leaders who know what is needed most deeply.
- Sharing Jesus’ healing love and redemption is at the center of every initiative and every interaction.
- We partner with local community members to empower and embolden them to create sustainable change.
Wherever They Go
Every Kingdom Workers’ initiative and relationship is an opportunity to introduce people to Jesus. When they speak about lasting change, they are talking about endeavors that have an eternal impact that brings glory to God.
