Habitat for Humanity Ministry
  • Habitat for Humanity Ministry

  • Winter Build Home Dedicated

    The house dedication took place April 27th  for the Carter-Cumberlander family, our winter build house. 

    The COTR Habitat Ministry has been working on the build since a bitter day in February along side people of multiple faiths.  The 'Unity Build' concept brought people from Jewish, Catholic, Unitarian Universalist, Muslim and Evangelical Christian faiths together for a common cause.

    This house was also featured in the Faith & Values section of the Columbus Dispatch.  See the full article HERE.

    • Our Mission

      The Habitat for Humanity ministry will build on the mission of the church by providing outreach and opportunity to those who need physical shelter. By doing so, our Parish works as a community of God her on earth by providing financial, physical, emotional, and prayerful support to many in need.

      In this mission we will achieve the following:

      • Strive to be primary sponsor on two houses a year- first starting in central Ohio and then exploring beyond our local community
      • Involve as many Parishioners as possible in this meaningful, life altering work
      • Use the many talents in our Parish to help us achieve the mission
      • Bring the light of Christ into the presence of those whom we serve
      • Build awareness in our Parish of the need for affordable housing and advocate for legislation that addresses this in conjunction with Habitat International.

    • Habitat for Humanity is a hand-up, not a hand-out

      • Families have to afford to pay mortgage
      • Families must assist with build
      • Families must attend Financial management classes
      • Positive results in mid-Ohio with low foreclosure rate
  • Get Involved!

    When I signed up for a day with Habitat, I was checking off an item on my "Bucket List". Little did I know the adventure was just beginning. I am on my 8th day now and am loving it. I came to help build a house but after meeting the family at the site, I quickly realized we were building a home! Everyone is patient and you get on the job training for the daily assignments. I have decided that I really like working with power tools.
