Maybe you have carpentry, painting, cement, or electrical skills; maybe you have brute strength and a willing heart—we have place for you to help as part of the Home Missions Builders Fellowship! Join a resource pool of volunteers across the country assisting Home Mission congregations with their construction needs. This may include some or all of the planning, construction, and occupancy phases as a congregation grows.
Skilled and unskilled volunteers are needed in such areas as painting, carpentry, electrical work, plumbing, roofing, brick and block laying, landscaping, and handyman services. Helpers, assistants, and other support workers (such as cooks) are also essential parts of the team. Our projects volunteers include high school students, retired couples, and vacationing business men.
Home Missions has watched time and again how these volunteer work teams make an impact – not just in the morale and spiritual life of the church, but in the heart of every person on the work crew. As team members labor side by side with local congregation members, friendships are formed, prayers are offered up, and Home Missions takes on a new perspective.

Thank you Builder’s Fellowship! Although you built with wood and nails, we are confident your investment was not just physical, but eternal. –Word of Truth Free Lutheran, Glen Rose, TX
Volunteers usually stay in host homes from the local congregation. Typically, meals are provided during the working hours. Each project is different and can last several days to several weeks. Some volunteers work by themselves, and others work as part of a team.
For example, one man with finish carpentry skills traveled to a Home Mission congregation and spent two weeks building a parament and cabinet, as well as cabinets for their nursery and youth room. What a blessing for this new congregation!
