Habitat Texas Sets Up Faith Partnership Council

Habitat Texas Board Makes Commitment to Faith Engagement

Recognizing the difficulty affiliates have with finding the resources to engage congregations in their communities, the Habitat Texas Board of Directors recently held a planning session around developing partnerships with regional and statewide religious institutions and organizations that in turn filter to congregational level (interfaith or intrafaith). At the same time, Habitat Texas will seek to provide resources to affiliates, providing social and structural support for engagement. The goal is for congregational level leaders to then reaches out and more fully supports affiliate.

Do you feel called to engage in seeking and solidifying relationships on the regional or state level?

Habitat Texas Board Members Steven Leggett, Brenda Shuttlesworth, and Beaman Floyd are taking the lead on this initiative with staff support by Andrea Earl. To get involved, email Andrea at andrea@habitattexas.org.

A few things we are looking at:

  • Celebrations to mark World Habitat Day
  • Hosting statewide National Day of Prayer breakfasts
  • Attending regional meetings of judicatory bodies.

How you can help?

Do you have a volunteer who would be willing to advise this effort? Maybe a bishop, presbytery, diocese level leader, whether or not they are clergy.

Prayer for our efforts, either person prayer or lifting us up at an affiliate meeting.
