Church Construction

Favor’s church planting initiatives are an integral part of our Community Development program, because we want to rebuild each community’s physical and spiritual needs around a healthy church. We stress the importance of organization and the installation of good leadership before dreaming of construction, but with these critical elements in place, construction of a church building begins. Favor partners with International Cooperating Ministries (ICM) to fund the new church construction and ICM has helped Favor build many churches across Uganda and South Sudan.

Our intention is to simply be a resource behind the church allowing them to take the lead and be as independent as possible. When finished, our staff walks with the new faith community throughout the following year to guide and provide training, discipleship, and mini Bible school courses. These churches don't belong to Favor but to the community of believers and their leadership from that local church.

The church building becomes a key gathering place for the communities and is one of the most effective means of reaching and transforming lives. Between life skills classes, Women Empowerment meetings, youth sports & activities, and schooling for all ages as a Village Learning Center, the church building becomes an anchor point in the community for both the young and the old. One church planted in an unreached community can affect countless generations.

“So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.”

- The Apostle Paul, 1 Corinthians 3:7-9
