What is a Faith Build?

A Faith Build brings local churches together to raise walls, funds, and prayers to build a house in partnership with a family in your community. 

It's an opportunity to live out your church's ministry, engage your congregation and see the miracle that occurs when God touches the hearts of new homeowners and the volunteers who worked alongside of them.
