What is KLI all
Kingdom League International
It is a joy to introduce Kingdom League International (KLI)! KLI is a covenantal alliance of kingdom-minded leaders who serve congregations, house churches, ministries and ministers in a relational network. We are responding to the mission, given to us by our Lord Jesus, to preach the gospel of the kingdom and we seek to follow His pattern.
KLI team members are convinced that if we return to the patterns of ministry introduced in the book of Acts we can anticipate similar results. Apostolic (strategic) teams were the key in networking and mobilization strategy of the early Church. In the Book of Acts, apostolic teams demonstrated the gospel of the kingdom through love in power, with wisdom. They were actively involved in mobilizing and equipping others. Likewise, the key function of our strategic teams is to equip ministers and develop leaders through establishing:
· Apostolic resource centers (ARCs)
· City prayer centers
· Healing centers
· Churches (congregations and churches in homes)
· Strategic councils representing all 7 spheres of society and the five-fold ministry.
Bottom line: we build, equip, connect, and launch teams of teams.
The Bible likens the Church to a family, but also to an army. KLI exists to serve the army of the Lord, which is also a family of ministers and congregations working together to demonstrate the gospel of the kingdom with power. We are connected by kingdom purpose and related by the love we have for Jesus Christ, and one another.
The amount of power released is directly related to depth of the covenant we form through this synergistic network of teams. Our league is a declaration that we believe when men and women of God work together, power is released. (1 Cor. 3:5‑9) Since each one child of God is uniquely gifted and called to serve a broader purpose, personal destiny cannot be separated from corporate destiny. Ephesians teaches us that when every part does their share, the body is built up in love. Therefore it is in our corporate best interest to see each individual completely fulfill their destiny in Christ.
KLI is a Network of Networks Connected by Covenant
We are a network of kingdom minded leaders, churches, ministries, and organizations who see themselves as part of a larger body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:12). We desire to communicate and demonstrate the gospel of the kingdom through loving and serving one another.
Israel was a confluence (coming together of two or more streams), of 12 tribes who came together for two reasons; worship and war. Twelve columns, or tribes, will proceed from KLI through the formation of apostolic (strategic) councils. Family by family, city by city, and region by region these will reflect the five-fold ministry and the seven spheres of society. Our goal: transform society through the presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
KLI Conferences and Strategic Leadership Summits
Annually KLI related leaders gather for training and encouragement. These Strategic Leadership Summits provide for the confluence of families in a clan to obtain mutual encouragement and training. KLI members also travel as ministry teams several times a year to equip and edify churches through conferences, seminars, and consultation.
Commissioning and Ordination
The league serves leaders by providing training and mentoring, and by issuing ministry credentials. Those ordained may be either one of the five-fold ministries, or servant leaders in one of the spheres of society. (Religion, business, government, media, education, healthcare and family) (Eph. 4:7-16)
Church Planting & Apostolic Resource Centers
In the book of Acts, the Church expresses itself in houses, cities and regions. And so it is with KLI. While each expression is unique, we are interconnected under one head, Jesus Christ. KLI will facilitate, initiate, launch and support the planting of all expressions of the Church from house churches to the Church in a region.
The ARC (Apostolic Resource Center - click here) is a modern day expression of an ancient pattern with a focus on interconnecting house churches and local congregations to the Church in a city or region.
Kingdom League INTERNATIONAL
We take the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus seriously. KLI team members have personally visited over 23 nations. Our teaching, training and mentoring has served leaders in 60+ nations in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Central America. We envision continuing to reproduce our team concepts and strategies in many countries. We welcome the opportunity to share what God is doing in these areas of our ministry and to open opportunities for individuals to travel and minister with us.
The ARC is Like a League
The National Football League (NFL) is made up of teams representing their respective cities. Each team is unique, yet similar. Each team has the same positions and serves the same functions, but each has a unique identity, expertise, and culture. All the while they choose to play and work together in a common league.
Kingdom League International is similar to the NFL. ARCs are teams that develop city by city. While the positions and the roles are the same, each apostolic team representing a cities or region is unique. Each is a team linked with other teams through a league.
Jesus Christ is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Kings establish systems – systems that are self-sustaining, self-governing and self-propagating. According to Jesus' example in Revelation 19:11, kings perform two functions: they judge (make decisions,) and they make war.
Through His blood, His word, and His commission, believers are authorized and sent to establish His kingdom. His rule and reign, which begins in our hearts, dispenses righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Jesus has chosen to expand and present His gospel of the kingdom through us, His Church. KLI seeks to demonstrate the culture and economy of this kingdom.
A league is an association of individuals having a common goal. It is a covenant or compact made between persons, parties or states for the promotion of common interests or for mutual assistance or service.
The term covenant is first introduced in Genesis 6:18 between God and Noah.
The Hebrew word for covenant is beriyth (ber-eeth' .) in the sense of cutting a compact (made by passing between pieces of flesh): -confederacy, [con-] feder [-ate] covenant, and a league.

International means "between or among nations; involving two or more nations, of or pertaining to two or more nations or their citizens, pertaining to the relations between nations, having members or activities in several nations, or transcending national boundaries or viewpoints. KLI works internationally to expand the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Combines Characteristics of Noah's Ark and the Ark of the Covenant
The concept of the ARC is based on patterns seen in Scripture. There are similarities to Noah’s ark and to The Ark of the Covenant. First, the ARC is like a ship. Just as Noah’s ark was built to save a family, the ARC is designed to save communities. Second, in the last days God will raise up the tabernacle of David. (Amos 9:11) What was at the center of the Tabernacle of David? The Ark of the Covenant, which housed the presence of God! David sought to honor this presence through prayer, praise and worship twenty-four hours a day, every day of the week, every day of the year (24/7/365.) Similarly, the PRESENCE OF GOD is PREEMINENT in the ARC.
