By Tim Taylor October 28, 2022 - Great news! The resources came in and we are overhauling our website.
Know that, if you have signed up using PayPal's auto-donation feature for the Kingdom Academy that soon, that service is coming down and you will need to cancel your PayPal autopayment. Unfortunately, we cannot do that for you. PayPal requires that you manage that. As our website comes online we'll re-present our Kingdom Academy and we are developing a new area for members of our Tribe and Family.
Addressing Cancel Culture
We are moving our website to a different platform to make us less likely to be canceled. Secondly, we are changing banks, payment processors, social media platforms etc... We are doing all of this to maintain our liberty to speak the truth. It is expensive. It takes time and a signficant amount of effort and I ask for your patience and your prayers.

With that in mind, this is the perfect time to review the three kinds of covenant relationships offered through KLI, their requirements, benefits and signs. In fact, this is the perfect time to teach you about covenant. Did you know there are five elements of covenant? Did you realize that contracts are a descendant of covenant.
What's the Difference Between a Covenant & a Contract?
First, there are five elements of covenant. Covenant's:
A New Benefit for Covenant Members of our Family & Tribe
Just before our summit we had enough resources come in such that we were able to act upon input from the previous leadership summit. This is a big investment on our part and it was motivated by our efforts to be a better steward of the gifts, talents and assignments of those within KLI.
This provides the perfect opportunity to revisit our three kinds of covenant relationships. By the way, this article covers some but not all that is contained in the video. So, I strongly urge you, take the time to listen and learn.
Three Kinds of Covenant Relationships Available in KLI
I'm a James kind of guy. Show me your faith without your works and I will show you my faith by what I do. Hence, when we get a revelation, we look at how to apply it today. That's what I did with CONECT/ORT/1Church1Day. That's what led to the three kinds of covenant relationships. It's the application of this truth.
Rather than rehearse all that I just did during the leadership summit, I'm going to encourage you to click here to hear the 1st apostolic directive regarding the altar and worship. In this message I'll explain the role of tithe, covenant and how it is a sign of who you go to war for.
Click here to hear the 2nd apostolic directive which highlighted the importance of covenant and government today. We have a Constitutionally legal and Biblical way to respond to the lawlessness being exercised by our civil government. Discover how.
This is the first level of covenant relationship. This is where everyone starts. The Bible teaches us that "where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Today treasure is measured in two things. Time and money.
Now remember that covenant prioritizes relationship over goods and services. Hence, it is relationship with our heavenly Father and with each other that is most important. The principle of communication, see my book "Developing Apostolic Strategy," teaches us that our communication lines and supply lines are one in the same. With this in mind a Fellow Worker is anyone who:
One of the things you will learn is that we take our service as a minister of the gospel very seriously. It is a sacred duty as the primary purpose of giving is ...... WORSHIP.
As a minister we take your gift before our LORD and we worship with it as well. Then, depending upon the type of gift, we will also pronounce the covenant blessing that goes with your form of giving. Then, following Jesus example in Hebrews 7, when then intercede for the giver.
That's one of the benefits of covenant. Another benefit has to do with not only our prayer but also counsel. We get many requests from many around the world for services, advice, money, resources, etc.... but we priortize our limited time and resources using covenant. Fellow Workers, Tribe and Family members in KLI recieve our attention first, compared to others because it is the right and honorable thing to do.
What's required on the Fellow Workers part? Pray and obey. Your giving of your time, talent, offerings and tithes is based upon your relationship with our heavenly Father and our shared common vision, values and assignment. It's a realationship united in purpose.
We pay attention to that. We count everyone's tithe and offering the same. It is holy to our LORD. Many who are Fellow Workers are also ministers.
Family & Tribe
While we want to see everyone launched into their destiny in Christ, it is the covenant members of our Tribe and Family that we will launch our of KLI publically through our website. Remember, covenant prioritizes relationship first. Relationship with our heavenly Father and relationship with each other is next. But what unites us, what connects us, is our common passion and assignment in Christ. We are united in purpose and the covenant facilitaes good communication and teamwork.
Who makes up our Family and Tribe? Ministers, churches and ministries who share our passion and desire to be:
A greater covenant has greater requirements. What are they?
I'm Interested in Learning More about the Family & Tribe
If you'd like to learn more about KLI, I encourage you to get our book Structures and Strategies. If after reading this and you'd like to to be consider for membership then make sure you've become a Fellow Worker (sow tithes, offerings, and join us on our prayer calls etc..) reach out and let us know. We'll begin the process of getting to know you. We are in no hurry to enter into covenant. We believe God needs to speak to both of us. If you have questions click here.
