About the Ministry Network
Kingdom Builders Global Ministerial Network (KBGMN)was created to meet three distinct needs for independent ministries, church leaders and
Christian businessmen!




1) Covering
- KBGMN. is a network built upon personal relationship. We believe that through the avenue of true relationship a unique dynamic can be created for accountability without control.

2) Influence - KBGMN. gives churches and ministries relational influence they otherwise would not posses. This influence gives a greater definition of identity for ministries to become something bigger than they are as one single fellowship. We also create opportunities for ministries beyond the local church, and the unique opportunity to draw on the strengths of other ministries in the network to help build, support, and train in the areas your church is lacking in strength.

3) Training - KBGMN. provides through our educational branch, "The Institute for Biblical Leadership" ministry training and education to help you become successful in your call. We also provide quarterly gatherings for inspiration, education, dialogue and relationship building.
 
Setting the Solitary into Families; Establishing His Kingdom; Training & Equipping the Saints!
Significance Of Our Name:

KINGDOM

This is the issue of the King’s domain. Kingdom refers to the divine place on earth where the King, Jesus, is pre-eminent. The Word of God declares in [Romans 14:17] that the Kingdom is not in meat and drink, but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

In Hebrews 1:8-9, it is stated that the “sceptre” of righteousness is the “sceptre” of God’s Kingdom. The Sceptre represents the authority of God that establishes His Kingdom. Therefore, righteousness is the very foundation of the Kingdom. Conversely, the Believer must have an inherent hatred for lawlessness because it prevents the hand of God from moving. Therefore, Kingdom is a lifestyle that promotes righteousness and must invade every area of our lives and our Network.

In verse 9, we understand that because righteousness was loved and lawlessness hated, God promised to release His favour. This same dynamic must operate in our Network.

Just as the Kingdom of God is universal, the scope and reach of KBGMN will also be global. The vision imparted to us by the Holy Spirit, is global in its reach and impact. KBGMN will not be brought under any limitations, be it socio-economic, racial, ethnic, national, international or territorial.

It is our belief that Ephesians 4:11-13 is being fulfilled at this time. As we read through that text of Scripture we realize that a part of the eternal purpose of God is to have a unified Church and that the work of the five-fold ministry is part of the methodology that the Lord is using in achieving this end.

“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ...” Ephesians 4:11-13 (NKJV)

 

The Builder

Psalm 127:1, "Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it." No church is the right church unless it was built by the right builder. The very existence of a religious body is evidence that it was founded by someone and upon some foundation. There are hundreds of churches and all of them had a beginning and started by someone. The right builder of the church that God approves is Jesus Christ. Christ did not build hundreds of churches, each contradicting the other, different one from another, teaching things that He never taught nor authorized to be taught. It is important to be in the church that Christ built.

In Matthew 16:18 Jesus promised to build His church. The church belongs to Him and He is the founder of it. If a church was founded by Henry the Eighth, John Wesley, Joseph Smith, Martin Luther, or any other person, it is not the church Jesus built. This fact eliminates all denominations from being the Lord's church because Jesus never built a denomination. Most of them acknowledge someone else as their founder anyway.

In Matthew 16:19 Jesus gave authority to Peter and later to all of the apostles, giving them the "keys" to the kingdom. Nobody else could ever assume such authority to say what Jesus said or speak in His name as did the apostles and other inspired men. Nobody else has the right to instruct regarding the Lord's church except they teach what those authorized to teach had taught. Those who would preach truth have no right to teach anything other than what Jesus authorized the apostles to preach and teach. Christ alone possesses all authority as was given Him by the Father. He alone had the right to build the church. Only that which He built is approved of God.

"Like living stones be yourselves built into a Spiritual House"

Jesus Christ is the good shepherd of His people (i.e. John 10:11), but moreover He is the builder of a spiritual home for His people (perhaps the primary reason that Jesus was a carpenter, not a shepherd). The apostle Peter recognized Christ as the builder of a "spiritual house" for His Church. Note that Peter quotes the Scriptures Isaiah 28:16, Psalm 118:20-23 and Isaiah 8:14 (as above) to prove that Christ was not starting a new religion, but rather fulfilling the foundation of all that was written about, and done through, Him.

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light . Once you were no people but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy but now you have received mercy." (1 Peter 2:4-10 RSV)

Christ was in fact a "carpenter" (the original word of the Scriptures actually means "builder") right from the moment of Creation i.e. "all things were made through Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made" (John 1:3 RSV)

"Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements - surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?" (Job 38:4-7 RSV)

 

INTER-GLOBAL

Kingdom Builders Global Ministerial Network has been raised up by the Lord to function under the parameters of an international, global mandate and as such we do not recognize any limitations or boundaries. It is quite evident in the Word of God that His Church is a universal one and the purpose of the Lord as indicated in Ephesians 4:11-13, demands a Church of global power functioning in a spirit of unity.

To this end, the five-fold ministry has been raised up to function! Apostolic  Global Networks such as Kingdom Builders Global Ministerial Network are being raised up by the Lord to link together diverse ministries across the earth into a common purpose. KBGMN is one of the means by which the Lord is using to accomplish that drawing together into the unity of the faith.

KBGMN functions out of Prince McMecha Gospel World Outreach, which is the ministry at the heart of the network. The Lord has blessed us with what can be truly described as a multi-ethnic or international Network!

NETWORK

KBGMN is a network of relatives, relationships and family. KBGMN is NOT, and will NOT become a denomination. The network extends to the spiritual family-churches, ministries and ministers joined together in mutual Christian faith and relationship around a divine vision, with a mandate from Jesus Christ to restore present-truths and ministries. KBGMN also exists to bring the Church to an end-time manifestation of Kingdom purpose, power and authority of the Lord.

The difference between a network and a denomination is as such... In its religious traditional definition, a denomination is an organization established for the purpose of preserving and propagating specific religious doctrines, tenets of faith, creeds and practices. It establishes a structure of leadership and oversight for the ministers, ministries and churches who become one with them.

From the Christian ministry perspective, a network describes a grouping of churches, ministries and ministers who are interrelated to link their vision, resources, products and people in one unified purpose, while not losing hold of their individual specific vision and purposes in the Lord.

Within a network such as KBGMN, churches, ministries and ministers move in voluntary accountability to mutually agreed apostolic/prophetic partnership and counsel based on relationship, while still maintaining the essential uniqueness of their individual ministries.

Therefore, the inner structures of the Network are comprised of visionaries who look forward and not backwards. They are motivational and designed not to get caught up in seeing God move in His usual, expected ways (thus limiting the power of the Holy Spirit), but instead to encourage constant movement forward towards growth, truth and the next move of the Holy Spirit. The Word of God accurately describes the direction and vision of our Network when it declared the following in Psalm 84:5 & 7:

"Blessed is the man (family) whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage... They go from strength to strength; Each one appears before God in Zion." (Parenthesis added)
