Simon & Kristina's Story
Ku-ring-gai Campus, Sydney
We decided early on in our marriage that we always wanted to put God first and see His Kingdom grow.
Kingdom Builders is a really practical and easy way that we can contribute to building God’s Kingdom. In the 5 years we have been part of it, we have seen extraordinary things achieved through Kingdom Builders and our own finances transformed.
We see it as a privilege to be a part of Kingdom Builders.

To me, being a Kingdom Builder is one of the most important things I can do with money. When I read that Jesus asks us to "use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings" (in Luke 16:9), I realised that it is possible to use money for eternal purposes! That God gives us the ability to take something temporary, like money, and turn it into something eternal - I still can't fully comprehend what an incredible exchange is available to us! Once the needs of our families and dependants are met, what more important use of money can there be but to express the love and kindness of our Father to others in tangible, practical ways?
I also believe God has put a mandate on us to produce beyond our own consumption. As I have learned to open my hand to give back to God what he has given to me in the first place, my heart has grown to love more like Jesus loves and I am blessed from this alone. In giving, we become more like our Father, who is the ultimate Giver. Beyond that, God has also extremely generously poured even more blessing back into my own life over the years. It's true that I can't out-give God!
My heart falls apart at the amount of need in our world. In being a Kingdom Builder I know my giving goes, along with the giving of others, into good soil, and together we can go some way to meeting some of the needs of our planet's most vulnerable and hurting people. I have had people help me in life, and now I would like to help others.
BUILDING GOD'S HOUSE
Kingdom Builders, Eddie and Rachael have realised their dream of building a successful property development business over the past few years. The couple’s growing business was able to complete a big project last year, which received a fantastic result. Passionate about building God’s house, they have started leading Hillsong Hobart’s 11:15am service. “We’ve continually seen God’s faithfulness in our lives, and count it the greatest honour to help build and finance His kingdom.”
Sam & Joanna's Story
South West Campus, Sydney
Looking back over the years we have been attending and volunteering at Hillsong, we have always felt encouraged, empowered and equipped to grow personally and especially when it comes to our business.
We love our church culture of generosity and thinking beyond.
Kingdom Builders gives us the opportunity to be part of something bigger than ourselves. This drives us to be all in and play our part.
As we all play our part, together we make a difference in the lives of others both globally and generationally.
Being part of Kingdom Builders is our way of outworking the great commission, of going into all nations to spread the gospel.

To us, being Kingdom Builders is what gives meaning and purpose behind our every day. It’s what drives us to excel at our professions and allows us to reach people far beyond what we can do on our own. it’s also our way of giving back to all the benefits we received from those who sowed before us. We would not have met in church, or been able to attend Hillsong College, without the sacrifices of many people and we hope that our contribution helps future generations to achieve more than we can dream.
