OVERVIEW OF APOSTLES FAITH BUILDS

The ecumenical Apostles Faith (formerly Thrivent Faith Build) Build brings local churches from around El Paso County together to raise walls, funds, and prayers, to build a house in partnership with a family in our community in need of affordable housing. Through this build, and as an affiliate as a whole, we seek to display the love of Christ through our work in our local community. The Apostles Faith Build program is an opportunity to live out your church’s local outreach ministry, fellowship with other church congregations from around El Paso County, and see the miracle that occurs when God touches the hearts of future homeowners and the volunteers who work alongside them.

MEET THE 2022 APOSTLES FAITH BUILD PARTNER FAMILY

Prisca and Noella 2

This year, churches from around El Paso County have the honor of being able to partner with Noella and Prisca as our 2022 Apostles Faith Build partner family, two sisters who are excited to be our 2022 Apostles Faith Build partner family. Pikes Peak Habitat is grateful to be able to partner with Prisca & Noella this year as they prepare for homeownership. Click below to read more about their family’s story.

WAYS TO GET YOUR CHURCH INVOLVED

There are a wide variety of ways that local churches can use their gifts and talents to support the Apostles Build and help Pikes Peak Habitat succeed in our mission to build homes, community and hope. Check out some options for engagement below:

  1. Volunteer

Throughout 2022 local churches will sign up to bring teams of volunteers to our construction site to put their faith into action and spend a day physically build this home for our partner family either for a half day, or full day shift. No experience is necessary to volunteer, and anyone sixteen years or older is able to volunteer on our construction site. This is a great way to engage bible studies, prayer teams, youth groups, young adult ministries, or the congregation at large. If you are interested in bringing out a group, email Chloe@pikespeakhabitat.org.

  1. Pray for our Partner Family

Join us in praying throughout the year for our Apostles Faith Build partner family, and for those in El Paso County in need of safe, affordable housing. As a starting point, check out this prayer for shelter, and consider sharing it with your church’s congregation.

  1. Donate

Donate to help us cover the cost of building the Apostles Build by donating online or reach out to Sarah@pikespeakhabitat.org for more information.

  1. Other Ways to Engage

Outside of these opportunities, there are a wide variety of ways that church congregations can partner with Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity and help us to build homes, community, and hope here in El Paso County. Check out our Faith in Action Partnership Menu to see additional partnership opportunities.

“So long as the Word remains a theory to us, and is not incarnated by our actions and translated by our deeds into a living experience, it is not faith. It may be theology, but it is not faith. Faith is a combination of both convictions and action. It cannot be either by itself ….”

-Clarence Jordan, biblical scholar and founder of Koinonia Farm
