CROWDFUNDING, FUNDING AND TOOLS FOR CHURCHES, CHURCH PLANTS, AND CHRISTIANS WANTING TO CHANGE THE WORLD FOR KING AND CROWN
WHY WE GET UP IN THE MORNING
CROWDFUNDING FOR CHURCHES, CHURCH PLANTS, AND CHRISTIANS WHO WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD
We believe that the ways churches do funding and fundraising are broken and this is the first step in many that we have as part of a wider plan to fix it. King and Crown is as much for those that want to change the world as it is for those who simply want to meet a need in some small corner of it. Imagine what could happen if we became co-labourers and partners in the gospel together in every corner of the world over, matching our action with our prayer “on earth as it is in heaven”. All believers, all churches, all in, everywhere, for the good of the world and the glory of God. Imagine if you could go to one place and find every missionary, every church plant, every innovation in the church and every church project, and then with a single click, take part in it. Our vision is to be that place. Our goal is to fix the way churches and Christians get access to, assess, build teams, raise money for and fund projects. Welcome to the first exciting step. This is for you.

START SOMETHING THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING
WHO IS IT FOR?
THE LOCAL CHURCH REPRESENTS HOPE FOR HUMANITY
Your church has incredible vision to reach the lost, love the found, and worship Jesus. But you lack the tools. Perhaps its a building you need, or repairs to one you have; maybe its just that the kids ministry needs a TV or your band a guitar.
FOR CHURCH PLANTS
PIONEERING IS THE BEST WAY TO REACH UNREACHED PEOPLE GROUPS
Funding for church plants is one of the primary reasons we stared. As members of a church plant we know the highs and lows of planting. We know how difficult getting funding can be, but we also know church planting is simply the best way to reach unreached people.
WE WANT MISSIONARIES TO REACH THE ENDS OF THE EARTH FROM UNIVERSITIES TO UGANDA
Some missionaries will go all over the world like Hudson Taylor, others will simply cross the street or join a university mission organisation. We want to see missionaries to all places be they smuggling bibles into North Korea or smuggling the gospel into Philosophy 101, get to where they need to be.
CHANGING THE WORLD TAKES EVERY SINGLE PERSON MAKING AN IMPACT
Maybe its funding a school in Afghanistan, a well in Uganda, raising support for a sick friend or buying a single mum a car, maybe you just need to fundraise for bible college. We believe Christians should embark on great works to love each other and others so that Jesus can be seen in how we love one another.
WE BELIEVE IN GREAT IDEAS COMING TO LIFE TO POWER GREAT CHURCHES
Projection, the telescope, Wall-Mart, HTC were all projects funded by the church and Christians who saw the value in innovation and pioneering great ideas. We believe in innovation for and from Christians. We want to see great startups and social enterprises founded by Christians for the good of world and the glory of God.
WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER AND TRANSCENDENCE OF ART, MUSIC AND STORIES IN MOVING HEARTS TO WORSHIP GOD
C.S. Lewis wrote in “The Weight of Glory” that the reason we love the stories we do is ‘because they are stories of our better home’. Art, music, film, story have the opportunity to be transcendent, to help our hearts see in a way logic cannot, to move our hearts to worship God. We love creatives and artists and we want to help them tell better stories of ‘home’.
WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR THOSE BELIEVERS WHO RUN TOWARD THE FIRE.
There are millions of great and terrible things going on in the world that we get to be a part of celebrating or fixing. Partner with your church, your friends and other christians everywhere doing great gospel centric work going on all over the world on projects you believe in, in cities you love. The kingdom is a community project and it takes all of us doing our part.
FOR NETWORKS & DENOMINATIONS
WE ARE BUILDING THE FUTURE & THE LEGACY OF THE CHURCH WITH YOU.
Networks and denominations endure long after the churches, church plants and Christians have faded. Networks and denominations build the legacy of the church generation after generation and we want to help them do it. King and Crown are working with networks and churches to develop a dashboarding tool to provide powerful insights into orgs while streamlining the giving and fundraising process. Sign up and let’s leave a legacy together.
WE ARE ONE CHURCH AND WE ARE ALL PARTNERS IN THE GOSPEL
There are so many great causes to support all around the world in the church. People going on mission, or to plant churches, or simply the desire to love our neighbours. Finding great projects, that resonate with us, to partner with when they are so scattered is an insanely difficult task. We are making the world a smaller place by making the global church part of your church and their projects, your projects. Back mission, living and projects you love and believe in. You may never leave home, but you can help others tell a better story.
HOW IT WORKS
GET BACKED OR START BACKING OTHERS. THIS IS GOSPEL PARTNERSHIP.
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS
As we launch, millions of people will visit King & Crown every week, but support always begins with people you know. Friends, fans, and the communities you’re a part of will be your biggest supporters. They’ll help spread the word to people they know, and so on. A good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide. As you launch your project you will build more than just a war chest to execute your project with, but you will also build a community of partners who will be praying for you, and maybe even joining you in the project. For the initial launch we are looking for the 100 most motivated projects. When you sign up below or in one of the pop-up boxes above, you will be invited to share King and Crown as far and wide as you can. The first preference on launch projects will go to those who shared the widest. Lets work together to build a great resource for the church.
“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.”
– Philippians 1:3-5
START YOUR PROJECT
You have an incredible idea for the church, a ministry, a project, maybe someone you love, or maybe you just want to get to college. Create your project, set your target, take it live.
SHARE YOUR PROJECT
The best way to get your project off the ground and find backers is to share and share often. Email, share on social media, call friends, send carrier pigeons out and whatever else you can to hustle and get word out. You need to raise at least 30% of your target to become viable.
BUILD YOUR TEAM
Just one of the points of difference in the King & Crown ecosystem is that you not only build your idea, raise the money for that idea but you can also build your team. Every project needs an idea, money and man-power, so if its hiring a pastor or assembling a plant core team, we can help.
BUILD YOUR PROJECT
YAY! You’re funded! It’s time to build your project, plant that church, support that person or kick your ministry into overdrive. Keep your backers updated on your progress, plans and milestones.
DO SOMETHING GREAT
Now that you are funded you are free to do the work you love and are called to, reaching the people you are sent to with the good news that was won for you. It’s time to bring your project to life! As you work, share your progress with backers. Post updates when big news arrives, or about once a month when it hasn’t. They’ll love hearing from you. Even when things go wrong, let them know, they can pray with you, be excited with you or cry with you. They’ll appreciate it, and so will you. Remember, money isn’t the only thing your project needs, it needs prayer, grit, and a whole lot of love. Lets do something great together. Imagine if we did, one project at a time. It might just change everything.
WE WANT TO HELP GREAT IDEAS LAUNCH BUT TO DO THAT WE NEED YOU TO HELP US LAUNCH BY SIGNING UP FOR EARLY ACCESS AND SHARING, BECAUSE SHARING IS CARING.

PARTNER WITH US
PRAY FOR US, SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA, FUND US OR SIGN UP WITH YOUR PROJECT.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO LAUNCH
We need your help to launch King & Crown. We believe this will be an amazing resource for the church, help start thousands of ministries, and do great work that will lead to hundreds of thousands helped and come to know Jesus. To make this launch as successful as possible we need your help. The better our launch, the more people we help. Help us go wide and help us go big. The four ways you can help us are prayer, telling everyone you know, funding us and finally but most importantly, putting your projects on our site.
A 1% CHANGE THAT COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING.
THE BIT WITH NUMBERS
Around the world there are over 33,000 denominations, 12,000 networks, hundreds of thousands of organisations and charities let alone the millions of single serve mini ministry plans from helping neighbours, youth ministries to larger scale missionary projects like building wells and helping a generation of children living in poverty in many parts of the world. Add to this the millions of churches and billions of Christians and you are talking a lot of projects, people and great gospel work happening around the globe right now. We want to make that easier to engage with, support and manage. In the United States alone, 2% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP – a measure of a country’s effective income) is given annually to Not-For-Profits and charitable organisations which equate’s to over 373 billion dollars. 60% of that last year was given toward faith-based organisations to a total value of $224 billion. This means a mere 1% increase in GDP giving injects an extra $186 Billion into great gospel-centric work, and that is only the USA. Many gave because “it was their church, not their preference”. There is a disconnect between people and projects, and people like to have some power over their decisions along with transparency around where money is going. This encourages greater giving and generosity. We believe that with greater access to projects people are personally in love with, greater transparency around those projects and more control from an individual’s perspective over where their money is going will lead to at least that 1% bump as well as better projects along with more exposure for those projects. $186 billion dollars of directed and targeted giving could yield some tremendous results. Imagine if it was the church and the church alone that funded the curing of diseases, the eradication of world hunger, the provision of clean drinking water, education, health care, put a stop to human trafficking, sex slavery and developed new and renewable green energy sources. Imagine the impact we could have together not only on the planet but for the forward movement of the gospel into every nook, cranny and corner of the planet. We exist for that reason. We exist to help you change the world and preach the gospel to it.
SHARE, SHARE, EVERYWHERE
You have some amazing plans. Plans to help and serve those in need, reach and save the lost, build and grow the church. We couldn’t be more excited about the kinds of things you will do with this platform. We need your help to get the word out about King and Crown so that all Christians everywhere will be able to build those great ideas together. Share far and wide, and lets build something great in Jesus name.
This is only worth doing if it glorifies Jesus so we ask you, plead with you, beseech (because we are old school) pray for us. Pray we get the funding we need. Pray this helps as many people as we hope it will. Pray churches get planted & supported. pray this helps people meet Jesus.
BECOME A PATRON
We have had a lot of people ask how they can help us pour fuel on this fire of King & Crown by partnering with us financially either by funding us or investing in us. We would loooooooooove this kind of support. We have incredible plans for King & Crown & the way it can serve the local church.
GET IN LINE TO GET ONLINE
