New church buildings testify God is here to stay in revitalizing communities.

Church ConstructionIn the rural communities that make up roughly 80% of the nation’s population, small and struggling congregations are forced to meet in tiny huts or in the open air. In many areas in northern Uganda where war was strongest a decade ago, and in South Sudan where it is still ongoing, Christian presence is absent altogether. Bibles are scarce and poor understanding of the Word causes believers to mix their faith with local superstition.

The construction of a church building for a healthy congregation living and teaching God’s Word makes a direct impact on the accurate teach of the Word to the local area. Favor’s church planting initiatives are an integral part of our Community Revitalization program, helping communities rebuild around the physical and spiritual construction of a healthy church.

Favor is passionate about planting and building churches. The church becomes a central gathering place for the communities and is one of the most effective means of reaching and transforming lives. One church planted in unreached communities can affect countless lives.

 

 

Through a long-term grant to build 1,000 new churches each in South Sudan and northern Uganda, your donations are matched 5x. Favor covers approximately 15% of the cost of each new church structure, a generous partnership grant covers 75%, and the local community supplies another 10% in supplies and labor. Favor conducts all on-site project coordination and followup.

Impact of Church Construction in a Rural Community

Permanent church structures in Africa help the teaching of the Word, and the building serves as a hub for critical village revitalization throughout the future.

“How beautiful are your feet when you’ve been taking the Gospel. There’s a time to wash your feet, and there’s a time to put your feet on the head and on the neck of opposition.”

How God Uses Church Construction

 

The process begins as our Community Revitalization team strategically targets communities and villages with little to no Christian influence. Once sites have been selected, meetings are conducted with village leaders to obtain support and schedule a three-day evangelistic outreach. This outreach yields a new body of believers and an ongoing prayer community. Next, these new believers are engaged in training and discipleship through our two-month Portable Bible School. Potential leaders are identified and equipped to lead the new congregation and to train others as pastors and church planters.

With these critical elements in place, the construction of a church building begins. The entire community is involved in the construction process by providing labor, food for workers and available resources. When finished, the structure houses not only Sunday services and prayer meetings, but also serves as a community hub for ongoing teaching and training in literacy, health and economic development. Ongoing mentoring also takes place on location as our staff walks with the new faith community throughout the following year to guide and sustain the village’s continued development.

A Word from Favor

“You want God to do the impossible? Put your feet into the impossibility, and watch God divide the water… You watch God do the supernatural, but go step on it. Go step on it.”
