What is Faith Build?

The Faith Build is an annual project through Comal County Habitat for Humanity. Each year, we bring local churches and faith-based organizations together to build a Habitat home in partnership with a family in the community. 

How can my church/faith-based organization help?

When a church commits to be a partner in the Faith Build, it is a commitment of prayer, labor and financial support to complete the construction of the home. 

1. Prayer

We all know the power of prayer. When we have congregations supporting the family through blessings and good will, it has a tremendous impact on every person involved in the process.

2. Labor

We ask each Partner Church/Faith-Based Organization to have at least one build day, which is a day where able-bodied congregation members work alongside the family to build the home, along with friendships and hope. No construction experience necessary! We train on the build site.

3. Leadership

Having a team leader with your faith group allows group members and Habitat to have a point of contact. This person initiates conversations about the group build, prayer sessions and how much the faith group can give financially.

4. Funding

There is no minimum or maximum amount to become a Partner Faith Group. Every dollar makes a difference. All the money raised through Partner Faith Groups and the Faith Build goes directly to purchasing materials to build a Habitat home.

How will it benefit my organization?
The Faith Build can provide-
  • A concrete way to put your faith into action.
  • Revitalization throughout the congregation.
  •  The opportunity to strengthen community within your organization and with other faith-based organizations.
  • Faith Build is an effective way to engage every aspect of faith groups (the youth, college, young professionals, etc.)
  • Publicity: There will be many opportunities for the entire faith group to receive media exposure while working with Habitat.
  • Celebration: The faith group will be invited to the home dedication where we gather and pray for the new homeowner and present them with a Bible and key to their new home.
  • Your very own opportunity to be the feet and hands of Christ on International Habitat builds will be available.
