Putting Your Faith in Action Through House-Building Partnerships
“We may disagree on all sorts of things. But thank God we can all agree that a nail and a hammer can be used as an instrument to manifest God’s love.” – Millard Fuller, founder of Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity was founded upon this concept — the theology of the hammer — that people of varying backgrounds can work together toward a shared goal, living out their faith and seeing God at work in the community. The theology of the hammer is about acknowledging our
differences, whether they be political, religious, philosophical,
theological or cultural, while finding common ground in the belief that
we are all called to care for those in need.
Memphis Habitat invites congregations from all faiths to put their faith into action as Habitat house-building partners.
- Full House—$70,000
- Builder —$9,000
Aren't ready to be a house-building partner but want to get involved?
There are many other ways to help Habitat change a family's life:
- Tell others: Explain how Habitat works and help recruit potential new homeowners
- Youth United: Start a youth group within your congregation
- Home Team Huddle: Participate in our football-themed event by hosting a party
- Build site lunches: Provide and serve
- Advocate: Join our committee and help advocate for Habitat's mission
- Pray for our families, our volunteers and our staff
All Habitat home partners are acknowledged on house signs, on the Habitat website and in all major Habitat publications, including media releases, our newsletter and annual report.
