Apostle Build

East St. Tammany Parish

What is an Apostles Build?

apostles buildThis type of build is a partnership that allows twelve individual churches (or another creative mix) to join together to fully fund and build a house for a local family.

As Jesus’ original apostles were charged with spreading the word about Jesus, our “apostles” are charged with assisting in Habitat’s mission to provide decent shelter for God’s children.

How will it work?

Each “apostle” will be responsible for 1/12 of the cost of the home and volunteer tasks to build the home. It’s that simple. You will need to raise a little money, recruit volunteers, and provide a liaison as a contact person and you’ll be ready. The liaison will work alongside our staff to see that this experience is full of joy and blessings for everyone involved.

What are the responsibilities?

What will Habitat provide?

We will provide the building site, house plans, and a carefully selected Partner Family to work alongside you, who will purchase the home. Our staff will arrange for all the materials, have them on site, and offer construction expertise and leadership on the jobsite.
