The Apostle Build is a collaboration of local churches who come together in service, prayer, and fellowship to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. We know that strong and stable homes build strong and stable communities. We are called to love our neighbors as ourselves. And we believe that with a little help, everyone has the potential to stand on their own. Therefore, each Apostle Build cycle, members of the faith community join together with Habitat to put their faith into action by co-sponsoring and co-building a house in partnership with a neighbor in need. Together, they create a foundation upon which a family can build their future.

The 2021 Apostle Build is enrolling now! Join today to build homes, communities, and hope in our brand new Cottages at Ridgeview neighborhood.

Become an Apostle Builder.
