Builders for Christ

The Builders for Christ Mission Team is a team consisting of Elders and teams from churches all over the East Coast.  The mission of Builders for Christ is to assist churches in building new buildings or additions.  Builders seeks to help churches construct buildings for reaching the surrounding communities as well as keeping costs down for the recipient church.  The team is full of volunteers of various construction skills from master builder to those who have never lifted a tool.  It is a great experience for the whole family.

Builders for Christ is usually involved in the following:  drywall, framing, setting the steeple, siding installation, insulating, and building the stage among other things.  There are also teams for meal provision, praying, VBS for little children, and the snack team (Frozen grapes are a favorite).



March 27-31, 2023

Some of you may remember Liberty Baptist Church in Speedwell, Tenn. We did a sanctuary building for them several years ago with a combined group of Maryland and Mobile builders. They have been in contact with me about fellowship hall attached to the first building we built. The block is laid, and they will be putting the floor on. Our mission will be to build the walls, set trusses, and shingles. If windows are ready and doors we should have the time for them as well. The trip is set for Monday March 27th to Friday March 31st. If Saturday is needed we can help if your time allows. The building is 40’x57’ with 8’0 high walls and a 5/12 roof pitch. Very builder friendly! We would like to field approx. 25-35 guys for this build. Housing will be available and some remember Joanne owns a diner a mile down the road and will be feeding us. If you are interested in being a part of this trip you can contact me directly @ RPWMSCONST@AOL.COM or let Kathy know if your Maryland and Susan if your are Mobile. This will be a great opportunity to get us warmed up for June in Spanish Fort. God bless and I hope the Lord leads your heart to help.

Please contact the church office at 410-795-9481 if you are interested in going on this trip.





Spanish Fort, Alabama - June 24-July 1, 2023

We are excited to share more information about our summer 2023 Maryland Builders for Christ building trip. We are traveling to Spanish Fort Bible Baptist Church, 7975 Spanish Fort Blvd, Spanish Fort, AL 36527. They are located out about 30-40 miles east of Mobile, Alabama. The dates are Saturday, June 24 thru Saturday, July 1, 2023.


The church is averaging 70-80 members each Sunday. They currently have no room for Sunday school. Although small in size, they are big in heart. They now sponsor 15 missionary families, sponsor a drug and rehab center, and work with Veterans and Bikers. The pastor, Richard Ullo, has been at this church over 14 years and serves as chaplain of the Spanish Fort Police Department. They have been praying and saving for the building and with ith help from volunteers, they are ready to build and move forward. And we are joining with Mobile Builders Baptist Builders as we have for several years to help them proceed with their building. Our part of the project will be to complete the interior (like we did in Steelville, IL). We will be doing insulation, sheet rock, and other finishing work. (more specifics as we get closer to the date)
