Building on Faith

Rev Katie Klosterman blesses a home during Building on Faith 2014

Everyone can use a hammer as an instrument to manifest God's love. Habitat founder Millard Fuller called this concept "the theology of the hammer," explaining, "We may disagree on all sorts of other things ... but we can agree on the idea of building homes with God's people in need."

Building on Faith is an annual celebration of the partnerships between the faith community and Habitat for Humanity. Each year, usually in the summer, a specific home is designated the "Building on Faith" house. Groups of all faiths are invited out to build alongside one another in an interfaith build that lasts 3-4 months.

Each year, more and more faith groups participate in Building on Faith, sharing fellowship and developing lasting relationships with Habitat.
