The Kingdom Building Tribe is responsible for providing growth opportunities through educational leadership, guidance, and instruction.  The Tribe’s purpose is to encourage and supervise mental and moral growth by offering the opportunity to participate in programs that use Scriptural truth and foundation to:

  • Communicate knowledge or skill.

  • Provide instruction.

  • Give insight by example and experience.

  • Provide material resource

The Kingdom Building Tribe strives to provide for the individual who is just stopping in to visit Dr. Luke’s Resource Library, or is participating in classes and programs, to see that they are always given the opportunity to acquire knowledge, understanding, and mastery of materials through study, experience, and memorization.  But the Tribe must go beyond this because not only is it committed to teaching with a new kind of dynamics and an enthusiasm for the facts, not as the world teaches, but as Scripture teaches.  The Tribe is dedicated to the principles of highest learning and Biblical truth.  The Tribe strives to destroy the old myths and concepts about who can and cannot learn – cast off the notion that the Bible and the textbook are not compatible, and work with everyone to achieve the highest potential for success and growth!

This is accomplished at five different levels:   

1.  Basic Skills Education

    Instruction in the basic academic skills of reading, writing, math, literature and arts, social studies from a historical perspective, civics, science, health, Christian basics, foreign language, and career choices up to and including High School equivalency.  In addition to being able to complete the requirements for a secondary education diploma, course work will provide the opportunity to learn or refresh the student’s skills before they enter, or re-enter further educational institutions, job training, or job advancement opportunities.  This is accomplished through classroom instruction, supplemental instruction in problem areas, such as instruction in Phonics for those who are struggling with reading, and one on one instruction through on-site Literacy Volunteers of America certified tutors.

2.  Fundamental Life Skills Training

    Deals with the subject by providing participants with instruction in the skills necessary to succeed in the world today.  Hands-on training opportunities are provided in typing, computer skills, and through unique programs designed to give the individual both training and hands-on experience in a variety of situations a person must cope with to survive day-to-day living.  

3.  Career Path Exploration

    Information and assistance seeking career possibilities and opportunities is made available to individuals who are just starting to think about a career, the unemployed, underemployed, those who are laid-off, those thinking of reentering the work force, or those just thinking about switching careers.  Helping those who have little or no training or work experience, lack advanced education, who feel they have physical restrictions, or age barriers, are all shown that there are many career choices and alternatives for them. The goal is to help each person discover a career that will lead to both economic independence and a productive and fulfilling career.  

4.  Christian Principles

    Instruction and study in the life-application of Christian fundamentals.  Providing on-going opportunities to participate in programs, classes, seminars, and workshops all geared to expanding the participants knowledge about what God’s Word must teach us and how we can apply that instruction in our daily lives.  Classes and Bible studies are provided for everyone from the very beginner to the advanced scholar.  The classes teach Bible only and are not expositions of what others may think.  Using Christian principles involves reminding ourselves of what Jesus did, asking ourselves what Jesus would have us do, and then doing what He tells us to do.  

5. Lifelong Choices  

   Once a person has learned what the basic Christian Principles are, they then have a choice - to follow Christ, or to reject Him and His teaching. Lifelong choices are about supporting those who have chosen Jesus.  For many it is not an easy decision, and while God promises us a rose garden, we must remember that rose gardens are filled with thorns.  Understanding that everyone is unique, and that God has gifts and plans for them is key to then working through the lifelong sanctification process of growth, healing, backsliding, and more growth.  The work has only begun with the acceptance of Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior.  To help those who are in that sanctification process, the Kingdom Building Tribe offers several incredibly unique programs that show participants just what God says about issues and circumstances in their lives, and then has them ask the lifelong question we all desire “What would Jesus want me to do?”
