I am genuinely excited that you are considering partnering with us in ChurchCare Construction. I am certain that you will find it to be one of the most rewarding things you have ever done. Not many have the opportunity to impact thousands like the missionary builder! He is directly involved in building lives and building facilities that will impact their community for many years to come, all to the glory of God! Now that is exciting!
Most missionary builders will move frequently, living year round in RV’s or staying with host families. These things are not always easy and require some sacrifice. Ultimately, if God is calling you to this type of ministry, it is worth the sacrifice.
Pray earnestly, asking that God will lead and make His desires for you clear.
What does a builder look like?
– Builders come from all backgrounds, serving as full or part-time missionary builders.
– Builders may live in trailers on the job site or rent housing nearby.
– Builders have varying degrees of skill and experience.
– Builders come from all age groups, some with young families and some retirement age.
– Builders serve for as little as a few days to full-time.
– Builders have a heart for service. All types of builders are vital to complete the projects on time and within budget. If you have a day or a week or a lifetime to give, there are all kinds of options for you to consider.
What does a builder do?
– Project Manager/Lead Builder— An experienced builder with the ability to lead projects, understand and interpret prints, order materials, develop and coordinate schedules, plan work efficiently, and coordinate volunteer help on site. The lead builder is a full-time missionary supported by churches.
– Associate Builder—Familiar with most aspects of building and willing and able to work and learn. This builder works alongside a lead builder. The associate is also a full-time missionary supported by churches.
– Tentmaker Builder – Either a lead builder or an associate builder could be approved as a tentmaker. Tentmaker simply indicates that the missionary builder has other sources of income and will not need to (and may not) raise personal support. A tentmaker may raise professional expenses. The application process and the job description for a tentmaker is the same as a lead or associate.
– Volunteer—Construction experience is not necessary to qualify as a volunteer. Volunteers are not supported by churches and typically work on a short-term basis.
