Thank you for even considering supporting the work of  Kingdom Dreamers.
 
What We Are Trying to Create and Who We Are:
Blog. Podcast Network. Clothing Line. Movement.

We exist to create thought-provoking content that both fuels and funds Jesus shaped living in community, reuniting righteousness and justice.

The Kingdom Dreamers is a movement of Jesus and the Kingdom of God. Jesus flipped the ideals of society on their head, calling us to live by a new ethic as citizens of an Upside-Down Kingdom. Though we live in an “already-not yet” tension with God’s Kingdom being here on earth in it’s fullest, we have been called to live our lives in light of its fullness. Living in a world plagued by darkness, we must live as Dreamers. Dreamers fight to see beyond our present darkness to see the light of the Kingdom of God come forth. Dreamers don’t sit back hoping their dreams come to pass, but they press on to see them realized. We recognize that the Kingdom of God won’t come in its fullness by purely human efforts but by the act and will of God. This reality, however, doesn’t change the posture in which we live, seeking to live like Jesus.

Jesus exhibited this life of fullness to perfect. He fought for justice, loved beyond boundaries, and boldly proclaimed the truth of God. We long to see God’s upside down Kingdom lived out to the fullest in our churches, communities, and cities. We long to see righteousness and justice reunited in our practical theology.

The Kingdom Dreamers movement is a move of unity and partnership. It is not separate from the local church nor the broader history of global Christianity. A genuine movement of God not only acknowledges, but partners with other ministries of the Kingdom of God and adds fuel to their fire. Thus, the Kingdom Dreamers is not a solo effort but a movement to fan the flames of Kingdom efforts where ever they are taking place.

The Kingdom Dreamers is primarily lived out on the ground (as opposed to the internet) of our communities, cities, and local church bodies where relationships are built and systems of injustice are actively resisted.

However, our prayer is that this web-space would be a place of thought creation and truth proclamation, spurring on the movement on the ground. We want to create thought-provoking content both in our blog space and podcasting network. This web-space will also be a place of funding for Movements of Jesus on the ground. Thus your support both with our clothing line and Patreon will go far beyond content creation.

We Hope You Will Dream with Us

What Your Support Does
(1) Creates Self-Sustaining Work
The number one reason for joining the Patreon community is so I can create a self-sustaining work. Any creative project or organization cannot survive very long without being self-sustaining. I need to make up the cost of web development, hosting, equipment, books/research material for our content, promotion and time. If I can reach the level of self-sustaining, I can (1) not take a loss on the project and (2) focus on full energy on the project and the ministries that flow out of it.

(2) Fueling a Movement
I'm asking you to be a visionary here. A movement must start somewhere - a movement must have a spark. My prayer is that this space and creation can be that spark. I long to see a movement of people that look like Jesus living out the faith of the Upside-Down Kingdom. A move requires partnership with others doing the work of the Kingdom in other spaces, and a movement is a uniting force between these groups. When you choose to support Kingdom Dreams through Patreon, you are a part of the spark for a change. Churches and justice movements will be started out of this spark.

(3) Further Creation
The more support, the more creative endeavors. As our support grows, we can afford more creation, more conversations, and throw more wood on the flames of a movement. Some of the initial creative goals include more writing, multiple podcasts, online coursework, and a giving web series.

(4) More Giving
The ultimate hope is that Kingdom Dreams can not only be a self-sufficient project but a movement that freely gives. If our support goes beyond our goals of self-sustaining and further creation, we want to start a monthly giveaway web series. We would like to give large sums of money to organizations doing the work of the Kingdom and giving strategically to those in need. The more you give, the more we can give. This heart of generosity will hopefully characterize a movement beyond this project of freely giving and freely receiving.

The Kingdom Dreams will be lived out no matter what - money is no issue in the Kingdom. But with your support, we can take the impact of the Kingdom Dreams project further faster, turning the spark into a wildfire. So please consider supporting the movement.
