Join Faith Build and build on faith with Habitat in 2020!

Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio is a ministry that is unapologetically Christian, radically inclusive, and we couldn’t be more excited about Faith Build 2020!

We’re thrilled to unite 24 unique faith communities to build 3 decent, affordable homes with 3 hardworking, deserving families. If you have joined us for Faith Build before, or if this will be your first time, we invite your faith community to partner with us and go “on mission” right here in our community.

Welcome
Faith Build 2020!

A great example of the type of missional unity you’ll experience during Faith Build is exemplified in the Book of Nehemiah. In Chapter 3, we see diverse communities coming together for one mission: to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. With a specific task—and facing major adversity—each group did their part to achieve the overall goal. The “faithful wall-builders” saw the miracle of faith in action. Their faith and actions were inspiring then and should be replicated today!

We are each called to tangibly live out our faith, helping others and coming together for the common good. It’s an example to the world that God is real and involved in the lives of his people. In 2020, 2,465 years after the walls of Jerusalem were built, you have an opportunity to live your faith out loud while inviting your body of believers to be faithful wall-builders. Just like the walls of Jerusalem, this effort will be a catalyst of hope.

Since 1988, Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio has helped nearly 550 families discover the power of a decent, affordable home, and we see God move in the lives of volunteers and families every day. Faith Build 2020 will certainly be our biggest faith endeavor to date—rarely does the collective faith community have tangible opportunities to unite for such a powerful, lasting impact. Faith Build 2020 is our opportunity to come together. We have prayerfully considered this undertaking, with guiding assurance that God will bring the faith community together again to bring inspiration and honor to Him.

We look forward to partnering with a new generation of “faithful wall-builders.” Come build with us!
