Faith Build

Dec. 2020-March 2021

Goshen Community Faith Build

This winter Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County will partner with our local faith community. Churches of all sizes and denominations will have the opportunity to build a home alongside other believers.


Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. As a Christian ministry, it is fitting that the church – Christ’s body in the world – is Habitat’s primary partner in this important work.

We are looking forward to building a home in Goshen and we invite the Goshen community, churches, businesses, individuals to join us as we build a home for the Smith-Beachy family.


Want to be a Faith Build Partner? You can:

  • Volunteer individually or as a group building at the Faith Build home. We will need over 200 volunteers spread out over 6+ weeks to complete the work.

  • Donate towards the home. Each home requires nearly $100,000 of materials and subcontracted services.

  • Organize a fundraiser for the Faith Build or collect a special offering for this project.

  • Prepare lunch for our construction volunteers. Lunch for 10-20 volunteers will be needed on 20+ days.

  • Keep our volunteers, partner family, and Habitat in your prayers.


Our Faith Build is scheduled from Dec. 2020 through March 2021. If you are interested in participating please contact
