We exist to spread the Gospel by providing professional design advice and the facilitation of building, renovating and maintenance of facilities used in faith based endeavours
To see the Church and other faith-based ministries operate with adequate facilities for people of every nation, people and language to worship the living God, and to see believers empowered, equipped and mobilized to ensure that all people get to experience a small taste of heaven here on earth
In doing this work, we follow important core values:
If you thought you had to be qualified in theology, medicine or education to be any use on the mission field, we’ve got a news flash for you! God can use your practical or professional skills to help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ! That’s right, if you’re a ‘do-er’ – someone who likes to get out there, get involved and get your hands dirty – then you’re just the kind of person we need to serve God by designing, building, renovating and maintaining facilities used in Christian outreach. Serving God is not just about preaching, teaching and healing – you can be just as effective by using AutoCAD, a wielding a hammer or a paintbrush.
As well as the obvious benefits you’ll bring with your practical skills, you’ll also be encouraging the people who are working every day in Christian missions around the world. You’ll build new friendships and get a real sense of direction and purpose as you work alongside these people to help them get the job done. And, by joining us, you’ll be making your family, friends and others aware of global missions, and challenging them to find ways to use their skills and gifts to become involved in God’s work.
