When the Bellesis got the idea of celebrating fantastic servanthood in a fast paced entertaining Award Show fashion it was called the WELL DONE Awards. The first WELL DONE Awards in 2007 was so inspiring and received so well, filled with cheers and tears, that it has now become an annual event.
The words WELL DONE are taken from the Kingdom Assignment founding verses in Matthew 25:14-30 when Jesus told the story of the "Parable of the Talents" saying "Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things".
The first Annual WELL DONE Awards was Wednesday May 30th 2007 held at Coast Hills Community Church in Aliso Viejo, CA the same church that Denny and Leesa Bellesi and their family founded and ministered for 20 years.
The second Annual WELL DONE Awards was Sunday June 1st 2008 held at the Grove of Anaheim in Anaheim, CA.
Participating performers and award recipients in 2008 include Americal Idol contestant Chris Sligh, Life Without Limbs Founder Nick Vujicic, Clean Comedian Founder Adam Christing, Jesus Film Project, Operation of Hope, No Cussing Club founder McKay Hatch and from the movie "Rudy" Rudy Ruettiger.
