We are Kingdom Builders
Kingdom Builders are a group of fully committed individuals and families who prayerfully commit to give, over and above their tithes, to global missions, local ministry expansion and next generation leaders.

2021 Go Trips
Hey 7th-12th graders, we are excited about our upcoming Go Trip where we will be working with the local ministry called Street Reach in Memphis Tennessee to help them impact kids in the urban Memphis community. There will be opportunities for us to do community projects, a VBS for kids, nightly team devotions, worship and small groups. Our heart for this trip is to be a loving example of Christ and make an impact on the kids in their community.
2021 Project List Goal
So All Can Hear
Jesus Christ said while on earth, “I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18
Kingdom Builders is our way of focusing on the great commission through a community of Christ-followers who faithfully give above and beyond. There are three main initiatives for Kingdom Builders: Global Missions, Local Ministry Expansion, and Next Generation Leaders.
2021 Project List
Jesus commands usto go into all the world and preach the Gospel, making disciples of all nations. As of January 2021, fifty-five missionaries and projects are financially supported by Realife Church. Missionary support is the foundation of Global Missions. Kingdom Builders also gives us the opportunity to support key global projects such as providing humanitarian aid, church planting, vehicles, building Bible Schools, Business as Mission, Bible translation, and pastoral development. Everyone, in every nation, deserves a chance to hear the Gospel!
LOCAL MINISTRY EXPANSION
2021 Project List
“The local church is the light of the world,” Jesus tells us in the Gospel of Matthew. Kingdom Builders is committed to funding the growth of the church locally through expanding our own campuses, planting life-giving, Spirit-filled churches in our communities, and serving the hurting in our own backyards through local ministries. We do not do this for comfort, extravagant buildings, or for personal accolades, but to help more lost people to personally know and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Future of Realife
Our Story When Realife Church launched in 2007, we met at Greenfield Central High School. Every week we unloaded a box truck, setup and tore down church. However, in Fall of 2007 another local church, First Assembly, voted to close their church and in the process to gift their property to Realife. As a nine month old startup church, we borrowed $250,000 to remodel our current property at 971 W. US Highway 40. We moved in to this gift from God in May 2008.
Over the next few years we paid cash to pave the parking lot, remodel the offices, expand the kids checkin space, and add nursery rooms. In 2011 we added a second Sunday morning service, and by 2013 we were running 300 in attendance. It took us 3 more years to break the 400 barrier, and by 2016 we knew we needed to find a new place to call home. Adding onto our current facility was not an option, and so we began looking for a new location.
On December 31, 2020 we purchased the former Hancock Wellness Center located at 5151 US Highway 40 near 500 West as well as the 4 acres south. This 84,000 sq ft building will become the new home of Realife Church! We will be remodeling the 43,000 sq ft front building for our church space. It will include a 700 seat auditorium, 11 children’s classrooms, adult classroom space and church offices. We will be adding 175 additional parking spaces south of the building. The total cost of the project is $7.5 million.
In addition to the new church space, we have 40,000 sq ft of gymnasium space that will become the Realife Sports Complex. With three basketball courts, 2 racquetball courts, and a wrestling room, this space will become a premier location for local sports teams to practice and host tournaments. We believe this will be a great outreach opportunity for our community as well as a significant revenue stream for the church. Our goal is to raise $500,000 to complete and furnish the new building.

NEXT GENERATION LEADERS
2021 Project List
We are committed to raising up Next Generation Christian leaders. They are the church today AND the church of the future. Paul wrote in the New Testament to Timothy, a young leader, encouraging him to set the example in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity. Kingdom Builders raises up our future leaders to foster a love for the Bible, God, and the lost and inspires them to change the world. We invest in the Next Generation through Camp and Event Scholarships, NextGen GO Trips, College Scholarships and creating opportunities for our youth and young adults to have life-changing experiences with God. We want the Next Generation to be inspired to serve, give and love more.
