Star-studded Kingdom Assignment Event, "The Well Done Awards" to Celebrate Extraordinary Stories of Faith

Live from Aliso Viejo, California

The Kingdom Assignment™ - As seen on Oprah, ABC Nightly News, The Hallmark Channel, People Magazine and written about in countless newspapers around the world.


The “WELL DONE™ AWARDS” will honor ordinary people who have done extraordinary things by opening their minds, hearts and souls to challenges within their own communities, positively changing the lives of others.      

In November 2000, inspired by the message in the Bible’s “Parable of the Talents,” Pastor Denny and Leesa Bellesi handed out $100 bills to 100 members of their congregation. Church members took the money and a challenge to multiply the dollars – via their own talent – to assist the less fortunate. This lesson ignited a movement that has inspired phenomenal giving around the globe.


Hundreds of churches, organizations and individuals have experienced a twist in their mindset…to think big and wide with this idea of being good stewards of everything in their lives. 


The Bellesi’s have traveled the world encouraging others to participate in the Kingdom Assignment. The three books they’ve written detail three assignments that were given to their congregation.  The first telling the stories of how the original $10,000 given to 100 members of their Aliso Viejo, California church grew to millions of dollars of charitable assistance. From a shelter for abused women and children, medical care for patients fighting life-threatening illnesses and a myriad of help projects. The Kingdom Assignment has inspired thousands to be good stewards of their own talents, treasurers and time.


The event on Wed., May 30, 2007 is a first in what will become an annual event/fundraiser benefiting the Kingdom Assignment Foundation, a non-profit organization assisting people in need all over the world.


Arrangements can be made for members of the media to interview “WELL DONE AWARD” winners from various communities throughout the country and to meet some of the beneficiaries of their spirit of giving.    For ticket information please visit: or call 949.715.7155
