The 3rd Annual WELL DONE™ Awards to Recognize God Honoring Faithful and Benefit The Kingdom Assignment™ International

Celebrating “Good Deeds in Tough Times” at The Grove of Anaheim www.TheGroveOfAnaheim.com

Many have been intrigued by the idea of an awards evening designed to celebrate the spiritual successes of the ordinary as well as the famous. Some have called it a “Christian” variety show, an “awards ceremony comparable to the many seen on a national scale via the entertainment industry,” and others recognize it as a “truly innovative approach to recognizing the good deeds performed by people with passion and compassion for their fellow man.” The awardees do their work with no reward or award expectation. Whatever people say about this special evening, it is so much more. An incredible and powerful evening of sharing what God is doing in these troubled times.

The WELL DONE™ Awards was created by The Kingdom Assignment™ International founders and authors Denny and Leesa Bellesi in an effort to recognize extraordinary demonstrations of faith.  “It is amazing to see how God is using ordinary people to do remarkable things for His glory,” says Leesa Bellesi “we have been privileged and honored to bestow a token of appreciation to many selfless people who have graced the stage during the awards night and encourage the Christian body to be the ‘hands and feet’ of Christ in ever increasing ways.” “We don’t have an agenda“, says husband Denny Bellesi, a long-time pastor in the southern California region, “we have a mission and an assignment of sorts, to recognize the good works achieved by the award winners and embolden others to do the same.”

“The awards evening isn’t about recognizing good people, but recognizing the power of God to impact people with the desire to do great things for others,” says a former award recipient.

The annual WELL DONE™ Awards is a fundraiser event held once a year, to raise capital to support Kingdom Assignments within the Christian church community, worldwide.  The proceeds enable The Kingdom Assignment™ International to grant and gift finances to interested churches who want to creatively serve the needs of people outside of the walls of their congregations.


Tax-deductible tickets are now available and can be purchased on-line at www.KingdomAssignment.org. Ticket prices for this benefit are $25 each, tables of 10 available for group purchase. The show doors open Sunday, May 31st, 2009 at 5:30 PM PST for a “Red Carpet Meet and Greet” with the media, award recipients, and attendees.  The entertainment and awards begin promptly at 7:00 PM PST, please visit:  www.KingdomAssignment.org for more information.
