Faith Build 2020
Each year, Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent partner together with local churches and Thrivent members in Green Bay to make a difference for a local family. The home is built and then sold to qualified families at no profit.
Join us in doing mission work at home!
Your faith-based organization can get involved through prayer, volunteerism, or financial support.
This year's Faith Build home is located at 1207 Western Avenue, Green Bay, WI, and will be purchased by the Grailer family with a no-interest mortgage.
Though our build site is currently closed to volunteers, you can help virtually by making a financial contribution. And to make your efforts more impactful, Thrivent will match every donation dollar for dollar!
In partnership with:
Share God's Love Through a Habitat and Thrivent Faith Build
Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent Faith Builds bring our local churches together to raise roofs, walls, funds and prayers to build a house in partnership with a family in Greater Green Bay and Brown County. It’s an opportunity to live out your church’s ministry, engage your members and see the miracle that occurs when God touches the hearts of new homeowners and the volunteers who work alongside them.
Join us for a life changing experience!
We’ve worked on numerous Faith Builds in partnership with Thrivent to help make affordable housing and better communities a reality for families like the Grailer’s. We invite your church to be a part of Faith Build.

There are many ways for church members to get involved in a Faith
You're making double the impact when you donate! All financial contributions made toward the 2020 faith build are matched dollar for dollar by Thrivent.
Turn faith into action
Church members generously volunteer their time. In a normal year, that includes helping with construction, and non-construction activities. However, due to the challenges presented by the pandemic in 2020, we’ve made a few changes. This year, church members can participate by hosting tool drives in their parking lot, make financial contributions or participate in fundraisers, and by praying
When a church hosts a tool drive, the tools collected are donated to the Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Proceeds from sales contribute to our Homeownership Program. So, while the pandemic may have limited our volunteers on the build site, we continue to find ways to creatively work in our community to continue our mission.
Faith Build is an ongoing event through December. We will be dedicating all funds raised on #GivingTuesday to our Faith Build, and that means every dollar raised is matched by Thrivent! We will also be selling this year’s hottest craze, hot cocoa bomb kits, and again, all proceeds raised as a part of the kits will be matched dollar for dollar by Thrivent.
Let's do this together!
Together, we can help a family begin a journey to strength, stability, and independence through affordable home ownership. Let’s continue the conversation and collaborate on ways to make this Faith Build a success. Call/Email: Matt Harper at (920) 593-5784 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
