Our charter permits us to aid IRS-recognized churches and 501(c)(3) charitable organizations, particularly Christian camps and mission agencies. Assistance is given to organizations aligned with our Statement of Faith, following thorough evaluation by CWCf staff authorized by the Board of Directors.

At present, we are only accepting applications within the United States.

We provide short-term construction and maintenance assistance to our client ministries so that they can either expand their ministry or make it more efficient. We are not a Contractor and we do not contract work. In most cases, we come alongside your ministry to assist you – not to perform the work for you. Below is a complete listing of our services.

  • Pre-design or pre-construction review
    • CWCf staff is willing and ready to review your building needs even before you begin the design work;
    • If you already have plans underway or completed, we can review them and possibly make recommendations that might lead to a more efficient or cost-effective volunteer project.
  • Recruit volunteer labor (craftsmen, handy-helpers, willing workers)
    • Our Project Coordinator can serve as a liaison between you and our pool of potential volunteers. We may be able to send one or more volunteers to work directly under your own on-site supervisor or to work with a CWCf team leader;
    • Most of our volunteers serve through RV’ers for Christ, a ministry of CWCf.
  • On-site job supervision
    • CWCf staff is made up of full and part-time, faith-supported construction missionaries;
    • CWCf supervisors can help order materials and help coordinate subcontractors, but CWCf does not typically provide any materials, subcontracts, funds, or fundraising on behalf of our client ministries.

Following a comprehensive review conducted by the project coordinator and CEO, which includes confirming project details, requirements, and ensuring alignment with our statement of faith and ministry standards, the project will be considered. Ultimately, we trust the Lord to bring all the necessary resources together to support the project.

  • An application for construction assistance that has been filled out.
  • An executed Memorandum of Understanding (given by our Project Coordinator once your project has been approved and details have been finalized).
  • Materials for the project must be bought and delivered to the site before our team arrives.
  • Workers from your congregation (whether staff or volunteers) are invited to take part in the project implementation. Remember, we are here to support and complement your team along the way.
  • Construction permits and licensed subcontractors, where required. We must have copies of the required permits in our office before we will mobilize missionaries and/or volunteers to your jobsite. (Any inspections must take place throughout the project, as required per building codes…no exceptions.)
  • We request to be added as additional insured under the client ministry’s general liability insurance policy during the construction operations. (A copy is then requested to be received at the time of execution of the Memorandum of Understanding.)
  • Automobile Liability Insurance for any and all vehicles owned by Client and used at any job sites or to transport individuals or materials to or from job sites for a minimum coverage amount of $1,000,000 each accident, including Hired and Non-Owned Auto Liability Coverage.
  • If your coverage does not meet these standards, or you are unable to obtain insurance that does, please discuss your situation with our Project Coordinator.
  • Internet access for our missionaries and volunteers.
  • Accommodations for our Volunteers/Missionaries vary depending on the project and the assigned missionary staff:
    • A designated area for parking their RV (trailer or motor home), along with parking spaces or rooms for any recruited volunteers, provided at no cost to the missionary and associates; the number of required spots is coordinated with you before staff is mobilized.
    • Utilities for the RV spaces include a minimum of 30 amp electrical service (50 amp preferred), potable water, and some form of sewer service (whether permanent or temporary), with the client ministry covering the utility expenses. While ensuring the missionaries’ propane tanks are full before departing from your location is not mandatory, it is greatly appreciated.
    • Some of our missionaries and volunteers do not have RVs; for them, we request that you arrange lodging, typically with a church family, in a camp dorm or cabin, a mission apartment, etc.
    • While we do not mandate the provision of meals, on projects where several individuals are working during meal times, it is common and highly appreciated for the client ministry to offer at least one meal a day for the workers. At camps, this often involves using the dining hall, while churches usually organize a potluck committee to bring meals to the job site.
  • We seek opportunities for our missionaries to introduce the ministry of CWCf to your community. For churches, this could involve addressing the entire congregation or smaller groups. Additionally, some missionaries are available to stand in for your pastor on certain occasions. For organizations outside of churches, we welcome the chance to present our ministry to your board or leadership team.
  • We kindly ask for your ministry organization’s support in promoting CWCf by providing a testimonial, mentioning CWCf in social media posts and tagging our social media accounts, and other related activities.

Please Note: Approval/Acceptance of your project does not constitute a commitment by CWCf to service it. We depend entirely on the Lord raising up volunteers to work on projects after we publish the need and project details.

Although CWCf missionaries are supported by faith and our volunteers and RV’ers for Christ cover their own expenses, we kindly ask our client ministries to consider assisting, if feasible. Along with the details listed in the “What do we expect?” section, we urge our client ministries to prayerfully consider contributing towards the following basic expenses:

  • Travel Expenses to Your Jobsite
  • Staff/Volunteer Accident Insurance: We provide a small accident insurance policy for our missionaries and for all volunteers we supply through CWCf to your project for a very low cost.
  • Ministry Support: Your support in any amount that fits your budget on a monthly basis is greatly appreciated. This will enable CWCf to assist other ministries with their construction requirements, allowing them to carry on the important work they have been called to do. (A suggested donation amount is $100 per month.)

If you are unable to contribute toward these needs, it will not prevent your project from being considered for assistance.

Please reach out to the CEO if you have any questions or concerns.
