Join Builders For Christ for a new sanctuary build in West Bend, WI

Be a part of something transformative as we expand Shepherd of the Hills' present facility into a brand-new sanctuary spanning 9000 sq. ft. Volunteers will lead the charge, tackling rough construction tasks including building both exterior and interior walls, installing trusses and roofing, constructing a firewall, and also contributing to the remodeling of the kitchen.


Whether you can volunteer for a day or several weeks, starting June 4, 2024, your contribution will be invaluable. All skill levels are welcome! Make a meaningful impact with your hands and heart.


Location: West Bend, WI

Dates: June 4 - August 31, 2024 (Tuesday-Saturday work week)

Number of volunteers needed: 30-40 volunteers

Project Manager: Mark Pamperin

Assistant Project Managers: Steve Blado and Peter Behrens



Camping will be available on-site from June 1st - August 12th. A BFC camper will be available to rent at $100/week for a maximum of three weeks.


A noon meal, snacks, and water will be provided each day. Volunteers are responsible for their own meals in the morning, evening, and on non-working days. Anyone not involved with the day-to-day building process is encouraged to assist the congregation with the meals and break snacks as needed.

Apply to volunteer


Do I need to have previous experience to apply?

Each phase of the project requires different skills and numbers of volunteers, so if you’ve never lifted a hammer, you can still volunteer! Our experienced volunteers happily provide on-the-job training to those who need it.

What should I bring?

While bringing your own tools and safety equipment is encouraged, it is not a requirement. We understand not everyone can access the necessary tools or safety equipment. If you have your own items, feel free to bring them. This would include safety glasses, a hard hat, appropriate shoes, hammer, tool belt, 1″x25′ tape measure, speed square, utility knife with blades, bird’s foot/cat’s paw, pencil(s), and chalk line. If you’re traveling by plane and find it difficult to pack these items or don’t have them, we have them covered.

Are there age restrictions?

Anyone 16 years of age or older may serve on a Builders For Christ project. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have an adult chaperone who will volunteer as their supervisor. Only volunteers age 18 and older are permitted to operate motor vehicles and power tools, climb ladders and scaffolding, work on a roof, or engage in any other hazardous activities.
