Building on Faith
A special celebration event
Building on Faith is Habitat for Humanity’s annual celebration of our faith partnerships, an essential part of our Christian ministry.
During this weeklong celebration, local Habitat affiliates and their congregational partners host building projects and celebrations.
Originally designed as a one-week event in September, Building on Faith has expanded to a season of faith partnerships that, ideally, will be scheduled sometime in Spring 2013.
The Building on Faith event culminates on the International Day of Prayer and Action for Human Habitat.
Building on Faith events can be grand. For example, local and international faith partners once built 16 houses in El Salvador during their celebration.
In other areas, a leap of faith may be a smaller step. Building a simple, decent house for a family in need is a perfect event.
No matter the size, Building on Faith events should mobilize the faith community to build houses as a tangible expression of God’s love.
