The Fuller Center for Housing

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

Make a difference in the lives of local families in Papua New Guinea, a culturally diverse country with a whopping over 800 different languages spoken! One of the world’s most rural countries, less than one fourth of its population reside in urban areas. It is believed some local groups still have zero contact with other communities.

Experience a new culture as you work side by side with local families to help them achieve their dream of owning a safe, decent, and affordable home.

In addition to providing safe housing, our program provides locals with jobs while supporting the local economy and creating a life-changing experience for all involved. If you have a heart for combining service, travel and new experiences, this trip is for you!

Mission Statement

The Fuller Center for Housing, faith-driven and Christ-centered, promotes collaborative and innovative partnerships with individuals and organizations in an unrelenting quest to provide adequate shelter for all people in need worldwide.

Description

Foundational Principles

We at the Fuller Center for Housing believe that:

We are part of a God movement, and movements don't just stop.

We have been called to this housing ministry; we didn't just stumble into it.

We are unashamedly Christian, and enthusiastically ecumenical.

We aren't a church but we are a servant of the Church.

We are faith driven, knowing that after we've done all we can do the Lord will help finish the job--something that requires us to stretch beyond our rational reach.

We are a grassroots ministry, recognizing that the real work happens on the ground in communities around the world through our covenant partners, so a large, overseeing bureaucracy isn’t needed.

We try to follow the teachings of the Bible and believe that it says that we shouldn't charge interest of the poor, so we don't. Government has a role in our work in helping set the stage, but that we shouldn't look to it as a means to fund the building of home.
