Fuller Center for Housing

Dinner and Ministry Presentation – June 23rd at 6:00 p.m.

MVPC is honored to be hosting a Fuller Center Bike Adventure Team from June 22-24.  They are on a 4,000-mile trip starting and ending in Portland, OR with the goal of raising $400,000 to help fund the Fuller Center’s mission to end poverty housing worldwide. 
The Fuller Center for Housing is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating poverty housing worldwide.   Founded in 2005 by Millard and Linda Fuller, who together founded Habitat for Humanity in 1976, The Fuller Center has grown to over 75 communities in the U.S. and 19 countries around the world.  Globally, the Fuller Center has built or repaired over 4,550 homes.
Working under the “Partnership Housing” model, The Fuller Center is empowering families by offering a “hand-up” out of the cycle of poverty. Partner families build alongside our volunteers and then repay the costs on terms they can afford — with no interest charged, and no profit made. As their payments go toward work on other houses, Fuller Center families become donors in their own right, demonstrating the principle that it is more blessed to give than to receive.
Come out and meet the team on Sunday, June 23rd.    Join them for dinner and ministry presentation from 6:00-7:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.  Learn more about their ministry and the work they have been doing along the way.  A free-will offering will be received.   You can learn more at www.FullerCenterBikeAdventure.org.  Please contact the church office if you plan to attend.
