in collaboration with

 Graced Family Chapel, Abuja

Introductory Remarks 

The world we live in is full of troubles. Though everyone has issues, some people have greater difficulties than others. Everywhere you go, there are confusion, distrust, physical insecurity and individualism. In the midst of these, how can a Christian be a caring person? What does it mean to be a caring person?  What are the practical ways of showing care to others in our world today?

Taking our bearing from the story that Jesus told as recorded in Matt. 25:34-41, about how the little things we do for others count before him.

This conference seeks to explore how a believer can live a caring life in the midst of an uncaring world. From the story Jesus told, we identified six key areas through which can show care for others in our communities.

These include:

  1. Hunger alleviation – Mitigating Poverty through small Business Start ups
  2. Safe water provision – Safe Water to the Poor as Tool for Evangelism
  3. Homelessness – shelter provisions – Shelter for the Homeless Poor as Tool for Evangelism
  4. Clothing for the naked – Clothing for the Poor as Tool for Evangelism
  5. Medicare for the sick – Medicare for the Poor as Tool for Evangelism
  6. Visiting Prisoners and those in confinement. – The Power of Prison Evangelism

We have invited experienced kingdom men and women to lead us in this discussion and to show us practical ways to live out the caring life in our present world. This is one powerful way of preaching the gospel in the world today.

Kingdom Impact Conference is a believers meeting. It is not an outreach to unbelievers. We want to talk to ourselves and retool ourselves to pursue kingdom purpose in the new world following the COVID-19 pandemic.

I want to ask you to please send the link of this conference to your friends where they might be to join us. We are in this together. The Holy Spirit wants to do so much in our world, but He needs our cooperation. It is for this reason that we put up this conference.

May the Lord bless you and empower you to apply what you’ll learn from this conference into your daily life, going forward. Don’t ever forget that you are a kingdom personality.

Thank you.

ABOUT US

… Great things happen when we act together

Introduction

Working together makes a lot of difference; it helps create greater impact in any community. It is for this reason that Kingdom Impact Network (KIN) is established.

KINGDOM IMPACT NETWORK (KIN) is a Spirit-led, Kingdom-focused, missionary Movement that connects Christian leaders in ministry, politics, Business and Professions to act together to create collective Socio-Kingdom impact in their communities and around the world.  We are a community of open-ended global network of Christians committed to inspiring each other and helping one another.

KIN was started in April 2016 by Pastor Joseph C. Ibekwe, as an extension of the mandate he received from God on February 17, 1995 ‘to go raise the foundations of many generations…’ (Taken from Isaiah 58:12b). The primary purpose of KIN is to connect Christian leaders in ministry, politics, business, and professions to advance Kingdom purpose beyond denominational boundaries. KIN is more interested in creating collective impact than in creating a bureaucracy. KIN seeks to influence the influencers in the Body of Christ for collective kingdom, riding on two scriptures:

John 13:34 & 35: “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that you ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one for another”.

 John 17: 21: “That they all may be one; as thou Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.”

There is a knowing about us and a believing about who he is that sent Jesus, which the world cannot understand except we do two things: we walk in love and we maintain the spirit of unity, as Christians. This will not come about by preaching and mere evangelization, but by living a life of impact in this world, through collective engagement, even though we are not of this world.  This is the spirit behind the existence of KIN.

KIN exists “To support our members to make greater kingdom impact with their lives through their call into Ministry, Business, Politics and professions”. 

The Mission of KIN is “To innovate, develop and implement kingdom-impact projects and interventions that empower communities around the world.

Premise of Existence

We believe that:

“Wherever Christians in Ministry, Politics, Business and professions connect and become blind to denominational differences, they will create uncommon impact in the society”.

Objectives of KIN

  • To support the hosting of Kingdom Impact Conference across the country.
  • To facilitate capacity development and funds mobilization for community-impact projects by members in Nigeria and around the world.
  • To promote political education and economic empowerment of marginalized communities.
  • To support members of the Network to run Community-Impact Organizations and Businesses.

We want you to join us.

Thematic Focus

  1. Spiritual -We deal on matters that enhance our collective spirituality, beyond denominational boundaries. We believe that the Body of Christ is too powerful to play second fiddle in the world. We also believe that if Christian leaders can pursue God’s kingdom purpose above their denominational missions, the world will take notice that “we have been with Jesus” and our fear will fall on them. Hence we:
  • Encourage spiritual leaders to steer away from ‘My Ministry’ to ‘His Ministry’.
  • Promote networking opportunities among Ministry leaders for peer support through sharing of facilities among themselves to enhance Kingdom impact.
  • Support Students Fellowships on Campuses, irrespective of denominational affiliations.
  • Mobilize Support for Itinerant Ministries in Nigeria
  1. Economic – We deal on matters that improve our economic capacity for kingdom influence. We believe a Christian needs to be economically empowered in order to effectively support the gospel, to have a voice in the public space, and to be able to influence public policy. Hence we:
  • Encourage entrepreneurship and business start-ups to enable us become wealth creators.
  • Show how Christian Business people and professionals could use their businesses and professions to influence public policy.
  1. Political – We deal on matters that build our capacity to participate in politics for kingdom advancement. We believe that politics is a kingdom business; therefore every Christian should participate in the political life of their communities and nations. Hence, we:
  • Volunteer in support of Christians seeking political office, irrespective of Political party.
  • Carry out Voter Education to help citizens understand why political participation is a critical civic responsibility.

Activities of KIN

  1. Facilitate the hosting of Kingdom Impact Conferences across Nigeria and around the world.
  2. KIN shall hold Members-Only Retreats as often as possible.
  3. Serve as platform for Biblical encouragement, resource-sharing, idea-development and financing of community impact projects across the country and beyond.
  4. Support members to run Community-Impact Ministries and organizations
  5. Support members to be active in politics and mission-based entrepreneurial businesses.
  6. Share knowledge and build leadership capacity of members to enable them succeed in their professions and callings.
  7. Support Members to carry out their own specific Back to My Roots Projects (BMR).

Our Approach

We believe we can create greater impact in our society if we work together. KIN is a network where everyone is respected and treated as valuable and as an equal.  This means individuals are:

  1. Learning from others;
  2. Sharing what they learn with others;
  3. Cooperating with others;
  4. Recruiting others to join the Movement
  5. Doing positive things with their lives to impact others.

In doing these, we deploy the most cost-effective means of communication including online radio, the internet and social media platforms to engage with ourselves and the general public to learn, to share, and do things that make a difference in communities around the world in a seamless, uncomplicated manner. In the conduct of our affairs, flexibility and fluidity is our guiding principle. We try not to be bugged down by bureaucracy, but focus our energy on what works than on maintaining status quos. We remain innovative, yielding to the Holy Spirit, and daring new things within the ambit of unfolding knowledge and revealed Scriptural truths. This means that we are not be afraid to try new things, even when it does not conform to contemporary practices, provided those things do not violate the Word of God.

Funding of the Network

The Kingdom Impact Network is expected to be financially strong and self-sustaining in order to actualize its mandate. However, it does not collect membership registration fee, dues or renewal membership fees from any member.

Activities of the Network shall be funded through the generous financial support of our members and partners. No member is under compulsion to give money at any time. At the beginning of each year, every member is expected to make a pledge of what they can give to support the work of KIN for that year. Individuals are encouraged to pledge and to give as they are blessed and according to their financial capacity. We believe that God’s project cannot be stalled on account of resources. We believe that through the provisions of God, we can get the job done at any time.

Rationale for Non-Payment of Dues

We believe it is not appropriate to place dues or levies on God’s people for any reason. Once dues or levies are enacted in a group, there is always the need to stipulate punishment for those that fail to meet up or are not able to pay, for whatever reason. In an attempt to enforce payment or compliance, relationships are often strained, which could affect fellowship and smooth communication among the group members. Again, paying of dues or levies tends to be legalistic and not discretionary; therefore, it does not promote choice and freewill. It does not encourage liberality of spirit; rather it cages people and puts them under the burden of fulfilling external obligation – as they may feel bound and restricted.

Another thing about dues and levies is that the motivation for payment does not come from the inside – the heart – rather it is externally imposed on the individual, even when the person may have agreed to pay it at the outset. The word DUES, connotes debt owed. Similarly, the word LEVY means to collect by assessment, to exact by authority. It connotes imposition – tax or fine. And the word tax connotes a burdensome demand. These are pictures that irritate the mind and limits people’s freedom to associate.  Kingdom Impact Network is a fellowship of God’s people; therefore, we don’t subscribe to placing God’s people on dues or levy payment to sustain the work.

Instead, we believe people should be allowed to exercise their freewill and to decide what it is they can afford to give, according their capacity and level of liberality. For this reason, we suggest the following options to raise money for KIN operations:

  1. Taking pledges at the beginning of each year.
  2. Collecting free will offerings at meetings
  3. Donations/contributions, at will.

Freewill is a person’s natural inclination, unforced choice. It is the ability to choose one’s actions or determine what reasons are acceptable motivations for actions taken. A donation is a voluntary gift or contribution for a specific cause. To donate is to give away something of value to support or contribute towards a cause or for the benefit of another. The common thing in these concepts is the idea of voluntary. That is why for any of these options, the individual’s discretion is given full liberty. The person is at liberty to choose what they want to pledge, offer, donate or contribute. When making call to raise funds, there should be no limits, minimum or maximum, amounts. Nobody shall be made to feel small or inferior on account of what they decide to give or not to give. The motivation to give must come from the inside, the heart, and not to be forced from the outside.  Peoples’ money is their heart. If it doesn’t come from their heart, it means the people are being swindled. We shall encourage our members to give, freely and willingly, as they purpose in their hearts, not as they are commanded or obligated by reason of levy or dues.

Therefore, there shall be no levies on members; rather individuals are encouraged to give what they can afford per time. Nobody should be pressured to give more than they can afford. There should be no coaxing or manipulations to cause people to give or to support. Those who are not able to give, by reason of temporary circumstances, should not feel guilty.

Leaders of KIN at all levels must observe this rule. Everything must be done decently and in order, without compulsion.

Chapter Leaders shall submit financial statements to their members on an annual basis. The financial statements shall also be submitted to the national Office.

Conditions for Raising Funds in the Network

Apart from yearly pledges and free will offering at KIN meetings, other Fund raising activities shall only be on Project-basis; that is, to execute specific projects at hand.

There are three conditions upon which funds shall be raised within KIN. These are:

To support hosting of Kingdom Impact Conferences – All funds donated for hosting Kingdom Impact Conference shall be domiciled at Chapel of Grace Transformation Ministry. Funds raised for the National or State for Conferences shall be transferred to the National or State Team leaders who shall administer the funds.

To Support Members to execute their BMR Project – Individual Members of KIN are encouraged to support individual members with their personal funds to help them organize their BMR projects. Such funds will go directly to the Member’s account and not through KIN. However, the leaders in charge of Community Impact Projects shall be the cheerleaders for such funding support – they should be aware of the donations.

To Support Ministry Start-Up/WelfareIf a member is about to start up a Ministry and asks for our support, KIN will announce such need and encourage Members to contribute towards that on personal basis. Also, if it comes to the knowledge of KIN that a member is in need of welfare, members will be encouraged to extend their benevolence to such a member. Providing financial support to individuals for BMR projects, Ministry Start-up or Welfare shall be on personal basis and not as an institutional obligation. However, the leadership of KIN may offer discretionary support to a member in dire situation, before individual members can respond. Also, as occasion demands, members could gather money and other resources to support a Member getting married or burying a spouse.

Emergency Fund Raising

There could be an emergency situation in any community anywhere, wherein KIN decide to intervene. In that case, the KIN leadership may call for emergency financial and material support to attend to such a situation. Nevertheless, contributions for such emergency shall still be by free will donations, and not made compulsory for every member. At no time shall members be levied for any matter.
