House and Church Building
Family poverty and the lack of homes and churches in Tijuana, Mexico neighborhoods are widespread. Many of these families live in shacks, makeshift buildings often with dirt floors and no running water. Building homes for these families provides many with decency, security and hope for the future.
The Kingdom Builders Ministry and Ministerios Transformacion mission is to “build relationships and change lives” of deserving families through the building of a substantial home that serves to nurture and protect a family.
Churches are also built in deserving family neighborhoods so that the gospel of God's teachings, and worship services can be made readily accessible to those who choose to follow the life of Christ, Jesus. Neighborhood locations of these new churches makes it easy for local families to walk to church since vehicle and/or public transportation is a luxury most can’t afford.
