Join Us for the Church Staff Build Morning!

Join Pikes Peak Habitat on Thursday, Oct. 12, 2023, from 8 a.m. to noon, for a no-strings-attached morning on our construction site specifically for church staff members. During the Apostles Church Staff Build Morning, attendees will have an opportunity to fellowship with other church leaders, kick the morning off with a devotion, and put faith into action for half a day. Breakfast and the devotion will run from 8-8:45 a.m., and attendees will volunteer on our construction site at The Ridge at Sand Creek neighborhood from 9 a.m. to noon.

Each congregation is welcome to invite one or two staff members to attend as church liaisons. While any church staff members can participate, some particular positions that may benefit include local/global ministry director, outreach coordinator, executive pastor, or young adults leader. If you or a member of your church staff are interested in attending, please register to save your spot. Alternatively, please feel free to send an email to RSVP to Chloe@pikespeakhabitat.org.

Join Our New Home Repair Committee and Learn About Our Work

Did you know that Pikes Peak Habitat has a home repair program focused on serving cost-burdened families, veterans, and seniors in El Paso County, CO? Many of these interior and exterior repair projects address safety, health, accessibility concerns, as well as state and local code violations. If you aren't familiar with our work, take a couple of minutes to learn about our program through the eyes of one of our repair program homeowners, Rose.

If you are excited about the work being completed through our repair program, consider getting involved by applying to join our home repair program committee (PDF). The committee will provide expertise in home repairs, remodel, accessibility accommodations, and general residential construction. Pikes Peak Habitat is looking for individuals who are passionate about our mission and interested in aging in place, service to the veteran community, and service to under-resourced communities to join us in this endeavor. We hope to see your application soon!
