But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. - Acts 1:8
Kingdom Builders is a step of faith and generosity, as we continue our efforts to live out Acts 1:8. It is an ongoing, yearly vision campaign for those who desire to give sacrificially and generously over and above their tithe.
At the beginning of each year, the pastors will determine a list of projects designed to build God’s Kingdom beyond what our current budget allows. These projects will be presented as a faith opportunity for those who desire to support them. Through Kingdom Builders, we will step out in faith to strategically invest our resources into specific initiatives.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only power that can transform this world. At the heart of all our projects is an intense desire to spread the good news of Jesus.
God calls us to enlarge our heart for the whole world, beyond our backyard. Because of the Holy Spirit dwelling inside of us, we have power to be witnesses—not only locally, but even to the ends of the earth.
We are to be an active part of building the Kingdom locally (Jerusalem), regionally (Judea and Samaria), and to the ends of the earth. Let’s live out our potential!
We believe that transformation occurs best when we focus on neighborhoods deeply. It is better to go “one inch wide and a mile deep” than “a mile wide and an inch deep.” We have designed these Gospel-sowing projects to focus our investment into specific Acts 1:8 neighborhoods.

This funding will be used to support The “Center for Development” in San Jose, Costa Rica. The center was started in 2014 and has been the center of Evergreen’s support since it opened it’s doors in 2014. The Center is the church’s primary means of outreach into a poor urban neighborhood. New programs are being added to the Center every year. Following are two programs, among many, that need funding:
Projects will center on five primary areas:
Kingdom Builders is an opportunity to participate in a vision that will transform our world, one neighborhood at a time. If you are currently tithing to our church general fund, consider a gift to Kingdom Builders that is above and beyond your tithe. Every gift counts, whatever the amount.
If you’re not currently tithing, please first move towards giving 10% of your income to the church general fund. Tithing to the local church is a key form of worship and is your first priority for financial generosity. Your movement towards a tithe will be a journey of faith and will allow you to participate financially in future Kingdom Builders campaigns.
