Church buildings enable congregations to grow. With a building, believers no longer need to meet outside where it’s hot or inside small houses where only a few can fit. In the community—because somes culture see a permanent place of worship as a sign that the religion itself is important—new doors are opened for ministry. Often, believers who endured persecution for their new faith are finally given respect.
You can impact hundreds of believers and whole communities through a church building.
The average cost to build a church in nations where we serve is $10,000 - $40,000 depending on the capacity and the location. You can provide not only a place for worship, discipleship, and fellowship, but a vital symbol to the community of security and permanence. Finally, you’ll help new believers—too poor to fully fund their own buildings—give an undeniable declaration that they belong to Jesus.
Raising funds for a church building will bless a fellowship of new believers. Together with your friends, you’ll provide shelter, security, permanence and credibility for a congregation.
