"I will build my church" Matthew 16:18
Builders Fellowship is a grant program for Home Mission congregations sensing God’s lead to build a more permanent meeting facility. As concerned Christians share the same vision, AFLC Home Missions helps channel resources (funds, experience, volunteers) into these Home Mission congregations for maximum results.
Builders Fellowship funds bless Home Mission congregations across the country.Past recipients include Durant, OK, Tomball, TX, Mesa, AZ, Glen Rose, TX, and Madison, SD. A local AFLC fellowship was already established in each location, and Builders Fellowship was honored to come alongside, bridging the gap towards a more permanent facility for worship and outreach.One example of Builders Fellowship at work is Calvary Free Lutheran in Mesa, AZ. Calvary Free Lutheran is a vibrant model of how a local congregation, God's miraculous provision, and Builders Fellowship volunteers partnered together to build a church (see pictures above in header).
No one today could guess that Calvary's building was once a former sewer plant. One project at a time, the facility was transformed into a beautiful worship facility and community lighthouse. With a mission of "Knowing Christ and Making Him Known," Calvary now hosts Sunday services, a weekly food pantry, ESL classes, children's club, and Bible studies.
