What is “Kingdom Advancement”?

BRAVE’s Kingdom Advancement stems from our mission statement to “Glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission in the spirit of the Great Commandment.” From our beginnings as a church we have had the desire to reach our city, nation and world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As our Elders sought the Lord’s guidance through prayer, they initiated Kingdom Advancement in late 2016 to take the next steps in expanding our ministry reach for God’s glory.

While vision is not an exact science, we are trusting God to plant campuses around the Denver Metro area and plant churches throughout the world. We want to see Jesus Christ advance His kingdom through our church and will continue to seek the Lord’s direction as He leads.

Our Vision

  • Campuses throughout the greater Denver area – with no one driving more than 15 minutes to get to a BRAVE Campus.
  • Increased outreach initiatives into our community.
  • More opportunities for leadership and discipleship.
  • Training pastors and planting Churches – here and abroad.
The Update

April 2018 Update

To date, $2,629,000 has been received towards Kingdom Advancement. The initial phase included a complete renovation of the worship center and lobby at the Englewood Campus. Construction began on January 3, 2017 and the first services were held in the renovated worship center on the weekend of April 8 and 9, 2017.
With completion of the initial phase, the Elders laid out a BRAVE Vision for the future on the weekend of February 3 and 4, 2018. That vision includes the following:
Name Change

Our church name was changed to BRAVE Church on April 1, 2018

BRAVE Global

A church planting network. BRAVE Global will train up and send out church planters around the world that will form a like-minded network of churches in support of our vision to reach a lost world for Christ. Included in BRAVE Global will be BRAVE seminary and BRAVE residency program – both of which will train up future church planters. For more information, go to www.BraveGlobal.CO

Ridgeline Church in Salt Lake City will be the first BRAVE Global church plant. Kingdom Advancement money will help launch this site and services are expected to begin in August of 2018. For more information on Ridgeline, go to Ridgeline.TV.

Additional Campuses

We continue as well to seek the Lord for His guidance on where and when to plant the next (3rd) campus. BRAVE Leadership is actively researching and praying through potential campus locations. We are asking the Lord to provide the location of His choice in the coming few months.

In support of the BRAVE Vision, a $300,000 fundraising goal was established, over and above our normal giving. We are seeking to raise the additional money by April 2018 to appropriately launch BRAVE Global and our future campus plant.

Financial Report

Completed Building Payment

Payment of $350,000 to the organization that sold BRAVE the building. This completes the $3 million in payments that BRAVE committed to when the building was purchased. This payment was completed December 2016.

Remaining Funds

The remaining funds from the initial Kingdom Advancement funds were used for the following at our Englewood Campus:

  • New seating – increasing our capacity by 20%.
  • New sound, lighting, and video systems.
  • New paint, carpet and acoustical treatments.
  • An updated lobby with more open spaces and connection opportunities.

All of these upgrades were completed in April of 2017.

Looking Forward

The changes to the Englewood campus provide an enhanced weekly worship experience and grow our ability to conduct conferences and training events. These changes also provide us with the infrastructure needed to live-stream services to Broomfield now and other campuses in the future. Additional funds received in 2018 towards the goal of $300,000 will be used for the following:

  • Planting Ridgeline Church in Salt Lake City, UT
  • Preparing for Additional BRAVE Church Campuses along the Front Range
  • Establishing the BRAVE Global Church Planting Network
