CREATING OUR INFRASTRUCTURE
It is more evident than ever that we are confronted with global warming, climate change, various emergencies and disasters, food supply issues and staggering economic burdens. Therefore, it is critical that the “Body of Christ” becomes unified as one powerful shield against the onslaught of social and economic decline, and its potential to detrimentally affect members in the Body of Christ which in turn affects people’s ability to finance the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
In recent years there has been a heightened focus on infrastructure in the U.S. Ever since the first conversations of economic stimulus, a few years ago, elected officials and pundits have turned to investing in infrastructure as a means to help claw the country out of recession. It would appear that even the world understands biblical principles.
Did you know that the age-old practice of bartering continues to contribute to billions of dollars in commercial transactions each year? In today’s challenging economic environment, business owners in the world are realizing that conserving their cash is a smart and necessary way to protect the future growth of their company. At the same time there are those in the Kingdom of God that have lost sight of biblical principles, stewardship, and the power of sowing seed into God’s system of operation.
By uniting together and creating an infrastructure we can rely on one another through:
Business and Church Networking
Developing Organic agriculture and exchange commerce
(Acts 2:44) “… And all that believed were together, and had all things common.”
ESTABLISHING A HARVEST HOUSE
Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? (James 2:15-16 NIV)
Question? If there were ever a food and water shortage what would you or your church do? What has your church done to prepare for this type of famine? The Old Testament states, that they had stored up goods for seven years in order to sustain themselves during the famine. Are you prepared to help your family, church members and neighbors?
We will show you how to set up a Harvest Storage House that serves two purposes:
a ministry tool for those in need in your church and community
storing up food supplies for members in case of a state-wide emergency
As people come to collect their food, the volunteers are able to witness to the recipients and to invite them to your ministerial services or small discipleship groups that assist people in turning to God and his resources when dealing with life’s problems.
Networking is an essential skill for most business people, but especially for entrepreneurs. Unfortunately, most church leaders have not gotten this revelation.
A strong association between the entrepreneur as a person and his or her business demands that entrepreneurs get out into the world and create and maintain business relationships. KOGI is convinced believers should have the same platform within the body of Christ for them to network their God given visions.
(Acts 4:32) “And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul; and not one of them claimed that anything belonging to him was his own, but all things were common property to them.”
Business networking is a marketing method by which business opportunities are created through networks of like-minded business people. There are several prominent business networking organizations that create models of networking activity that, when followed, allow the business person to build new business relationships and generate business opportunities at the same time. Our aim is to be that platform for Christian business men and women around the world.
Imagine churches and businesses alike having the power of groups, like-minded, action-ready Kingdom citizens, and consumers that are able to go online and connect, group, and ultimately exert influence on a global scale. Everyone uniting on this level be it political, community or commercial zoning against churches, aimed at everything from bringing down unethical bills to forcing suppliers to fork over discounts.”
(Imagine if 10 businesses or churches need to purchase office furniture within the same month. Through uniting together within this infrastructure; they could purchase the same equipment and or furniture at a third of the cost.)
KOGI FUTURE GOALS
We aim in the next 2-5 years to Partner with Kingdom Minded Leaders & Businesses in 20 different states and 5 countries.
Coming soon we will have feature links for employment opportunities, leaders and board support counseling, Christian chamber of commerce and details to church planting financial support requirements.
We are building an interactive website that will feed, fuel and formulate resources and tools to assist churches and businesses in reaching their peak potential through this brotherhood!
By 2020 KOGI International Impact will include a collective recession-proof economy, Kingdom Commerce infrastructure based on financial trade and bartering with other Kingdom Believers. The establishment of this system will facilitate self-reliance within the Kingdom of God for us to fuel and support each other.
