Welcome to Legacy Builders Church
LOVING GOD & LOVING OTHERS
~ A Family That’s Not Perfect ~
Legacy Builders Church rose out the desire to create a large global family that had one focus. Building a Legacy. A group of people completely focused on breaking the cycles of their past, cycles that have been carried over from generation to generation, and walking with Jesus so it NEVER has to pass down again. Our Legacy here is different. It is said that in 2 generations what we do will be forgotten. However, that is only when Jesus is not the foundation. With Jesus as the Foundation, every Legacy Builder here, after the chains from the past are broken, will experience living water that will begin to flow to every generation afterwards. But when there is no place to go for you to grow, for you to turn to so that you are built up, no place to go to that is your recovery corner from the rough boxing round with the enemy, no place to go to that you can call home, that you can feel safe, that you can turn to for hope, for encouragement, for a laugh, for a smile…well then you are just puddy in the hands of satan. A victim of circumstance tossed to and fro by the aggressive waves of life. Leaving you feeling like you are cursed and not good enough…
This is the core of why Pastor Will and his wife Bobby Jo, began Legacy Builders Church. There are people who are out in the world that are God’s chosen children. They are different. Yet they feel cursed in their life. Good things happen, but it seems like a whole lot more bad happens. And they can’t seem to understand why. There is a heavy price that is to be paid when you are a child of God’s. Whether they know it or not, satan doesn’t fight fair. WAR is not fair. These are the people who need and deserve to the know the truth about who they are, they deserve to experience God’s love and goodness in their lives. Yet there is no place to go, and no one to turn to. In a world full of hypocritical christians, saying one thing, but then acting and living the complete opposite, casting their demeaning judgments on anyone who doesn’t look like them, where is a person who deserves to know the truth go? Where does a person who deserves to know their worth, to know their Heavenly Father, to know His love them go? Where does a person who deserves to know that God has always been there fighting for them and that there is a war being waged for their very soul go?
The answer is Legacy Builders Church. As you get to know Pastor Will or Bobby Jo, you will see, that they are far from perfect. They were the ones on the other end with no where to go. Rejected from the church because of the path that their life was pushed into because of the snares of satan, yet the one place that was suppose to help, was the last place they could turn to. This is a church for the chosen. The ordinary. The misfit. The homeless man. The addict. The prostitute. The dirty. The down on their luck. The outcast. The forgotten. The confused. The lonely. The “not quiet good enough.” God never forgot about us, and he hasn’t forgotten about you. No matter what your experience was in the past, church is and always will be the place for healing. it’s the place you come to for help, direction, friendship, family, love, hope, and encouragement. A place where you can openly fail forward in your life and walk with Jesus and have people around you to pick you back up and help you along the way. A place you come to so you can here clear from God. A place where you don’t have to worry about being talked about for your flaws and shortcomings.
Nothing is required of you here. While the Legacy Builders Family is able to grow and serve each other on the contributions made financially and the contributions made physically, this is something that happens when a person is ready and is able. The love you receive is free. The teaching is free. The food is free. The help is free. Why? Because that’s how God truly intended it to be. You don’t have to be rich to be here. You don’t have to be rich to fit in here. You don’t have to rich or have money at all to be here. Just be YOU. Let God work in you and walk with Him. You will change and grow over time. God’s Word and Spirit will guide you if you do not fight it. All we ask is that you show up for God’s Word, God’s Guidance, God’s Love, more than you show up for us, and an open heart for Jesus to speak to. The cloths you wear are irrelevant, it’s the heart that matters. You are not going to be talked about for the cloths you wear here, or the struggles you have in your life here. You won’t feel uncomfortable because the path you are currently on in your life, the decisions you have made or what you have done in your past here. We are all Legacy Builders Here. And NONE of us, including the Pastor and his wife, have come from a straight and perfect background.
Finally to answer your question, where can you find us? We are currently located in Bedford, Va. We are completely mobile as of 2022 still in search of where a solid location will be that meets all of our current needs. We are non-denominational and multicultural. You can and will more than likely see us around the Bedford Area with our food Truck Heavenly Street Eats and our amazing team doing various things within the community. You can always request where you would like for us to show up and have church within your community by filling out our Church Request Form located under the “Legacy Connect” tab of our website.
We would LOVE and be honored to come and be with your community for the day. We love to partner with like minded ordinary individuals or ministries, so just reach out, we’d love to travel to a place near you. Otherwise, we gather for bible study virtually once a week, you can see the schedule under the “Legacy Connect” tab as well. And on the various different platforms their are times we just meet and talk together virtually. Of course the “Legacy Connect” tab will have the schedule there for you to see those days as well. You can get many teachings on our Pastors YouTube, as well as resources from the “Legacy Library.”
Our Mission is to Reach, Serve, Grow, and Equip each Generation with the Word of God.
Our Mission As A Church
The Mission of Legacy Builders Church is to build up and strengthen families so they are able to experience life as God intended. Teaching them the Way so they can stand up, stand tall, and be bold in the face of their enemies and confident in the midst of adversity. Everything we do is and will be rooted in our mission statement. Our focus, resources, energy and efforts will all derive from reaching God’s children, serving them, growing them, and then equipping them to be able to stand on their own two feet, having new boldness and confidence to lead their families, teaching their children the mysteries of this world and how to live in it.
Our Mission to all those who decide to Join the LBC Family and Identity themselves as Legacy Builders
Legacy builders church is a church that is here for YOU. It’s not about us. What do you need? Once you have you accepted Jesus into your life, and your heart with your free will, then our work begins. We begin working together with him to get you where he’s written it on your heart to be. Scripture reveals to us that when you delight in the LORD He will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4). You will know what it is that you need in each season at just the right time. Sometimes it’s not physical. Sometimes it’s emotional, mental or spiritual. Sometimes you just need a night out with good friends that aren’t going to lead you in the wrong direction. Whatever that need may be, as Legacy Builders, we stick together. We are here for you, while none of us are perfect, we are all focused on becoming and relearning who we were meant to be. All the supplies we have, the resources we have all come from the strength and generosity of our family. Even when our lives aren’t perfect we are still reaching out to help each other. So don’t think you have to have it all together here. We have your back just as you will have someone else back in time. As long as your heart is open to God’s love, and His guidance, we will be right beside you.
Why though? Nothing is free in this world. No one does things without some sort of ulterior motive.
Well…That is true…by the worlds standard.
That doesn’t apply here.
You may not have experienced this in the churches you grew up in, or the church you attended for many years that ended up hurting you. But this is a different kind of Church. We are dedicated to the God we serve here. We know His love here, we are growing in His love here, and we put understanding His word and following his Word first (even the convicting parts), so this kind of love is just what naturally pours out of us…because it’s how it was always meant to be.
As long as you are Legacy focused, your heart is open to God’s will and way by your own free will, and you are willing to allow yourself to be loved by others, then this is the family, and this is the Church for you.
We are a family here. So expect us to love you like the family you may have wished you had. This means we will be doing life together. Building up our lives together, doing fun things together, praying together, growing in God’s word together, serving our families and others around us together, encouraging one another, struggling with one another, celebrating with one another, and rejoicing with one another as God moves all of us as His children from glory to glory.
This all sounds great I’m sure…maybe a little too good to be true…
But understand that although all this is true, we don’t want to do things until you are ready. Choosing to let Jesus into your heart, and follow Him after doing your own thing for many many years of your life is not a decision that we want to force on you or anyone for that matter. It’s a decision that only you can make when you are ready. But when you are…we are…and we are ready to answer your toughest questions and be your tightest friends.
We care about your eternity. Not Just your life while we are here on earth together.
Life isn’t easy. We get that. But from experience we can tell you, it’s easier when you have God on your side, and HIS family with you on the other. You weren’t mad to do life alone.
We stand for Legacy, We stand for Life. And we will let nothing stand to wipe out you, or the next generation of God’s children in your family as long as God continues to give us air in our lungs.
A New Family, For New Beginings
Our Vision for the Next 10 years is…
To have a Community center for the kids and youth where we can Shepard and help parents to build up the next generation. A place where kids will go to for friends, family, help, encouragement and guidance, done the LBC Way with God’s Guidance.
To partner with key members who want to take care of their communities, who have a heart to see people set free, to see people brought back to their Heavenly Father, to reach the youth, to teach the youth, to see people experience Gods love, and to see people set free.
To unite the body of Christ and begin to work together as an army to bring them back to Gods stolen children.
To have a warehouse or warehouses around each city to take care of God’s Children on our missions and the LBC Family.
To travel around the US with a team of dedicated followers of Christ proclaiming the Kingdom, Healing the sick, setting people free from oppression, and not only giving people hope but taking them to the next level of their life in the short time we are there.
To raise up a church that is not uncomfortable hearing truth, but set free by it.
To see veterans taken care of, assisted, and set free.
To bring in a new standard for living on earth. Providing free childcare, free food, and living to all who are in need.
To educate the youth in such a way that they will be able to have the skills and knowledge that truly matter to living on earth during this time. Equipping them to be able to take care of themselves and others in times of need.
To give parents the resources and support they need to raise their children to love and follow God’s leadership while on earth during this time.
To undo the confusion of the world and help both husbands and wives, to clearly understand God’s design for their marriage, and equip them to experience the fullness of life God has for them and their children.
To maneuver like an army with the help of members from the Body of Christ from all over the world and the power of the LBC Family reaching those in need within our own country.
And finally, to lead the way as a light for the next great revival.
Change the Leader, Change the World
Our Beliefs Aren’t Conventional
At Legacy Builders Church we believe that if we are to see any true change in our communities, it must first come from within the Body of Christ. But the problem is that the church is operating as separate entities instead of a body as Jesus described to us. Churches will continue to fail as long as they continue to operate without unity.
We believe that the church is not being equip properly from the top down. We see that Pastors are operating more out of a Job Title than a calling. Only teaching but not actively engaging in the warfare required to free and save lives from satans grip. Following formulas for growth instead of getting involved in the peoples lives who need their shepherding. This causes their individual body of Christ they are responsible for to suffer from “eternal toddler syndrome.” A Syndrome first discovered in year 2022 by Pastor Will Alston upon first witnessing the clear discrepancy between the word of God, and those who truly practiced it. (Heavy sarcasm here, but totally blank stare serious) When the leader of a given body of Christ is only following formula, only being religious, being as hands off as possible, and not getting involved in the war that is waging, neither will it’s people.
We believe that the modern day church is missing the relationship and care needed to successfully help bring lives and souls from satans grip. It has become very religious, only operating to serve it’s business like purpose more than the people they were called to.
We believe in taking care of our Church as family takes care of each other. Thanks to the wonderful family that we have now, and our ability to creatively innovate around having salaries, we are able to use what you give to our ministry, both financially, and physically in the form of food, cars, housing and more, to take care of each other just like a strong well grounded family would.
We believe in taking care of our Community like it is an extension of us. We aim to leave no stone left unturned in our mission to reach each generation with God’s love.
We believe that in order to heal we must first be healed. This means that in order to truly be affective as warriors for Christ, we must be actively engaged in following him. It’s a journey, one that is each individuals responsibility. Going to Church is essential, but just going to church doesn’t change a human heart. It comes down to our personal humility to admit our shortcomings, our proactive choice to choose to keep our focus on Jesus daily, and our personal desire to grow and foster our relationship with our Heavenly Father. Without these things, we become religious hypocrites, using the Bible for our own personal agenda’s, and hurting the people who watch us that truly needed God’s love and power in their life.
We believe Church should be close like family and comfortable like friends. So much about this can be said. But if you call LBC home for your growth, you will know exactly what we mean soon enough.
We believe that we have to embrace being different. There are so many changes that have to be made if we are to be successful as a Church, and as individuals who choose to return back to our Heavenly Father, and away from satan. Being different in God’s light must become something we are confident in, if we are going to be dedicated to our walk with Jesus.
