Use Laborers For Christ

Laborers For Christ members bring experience and expert knowledge in construction, typically cutting building costs by 10% to 30%. Laborers For Christ can also update existing facilities, helping you acquire tax credits, money savings and energy efficiency.

The financial benefits, though, are secondary to the uplifting presence Laborers For Christ brings to your ministry. Members become part of your ministry, attending worship services and Bible studies. They will help you multiply your volunteer base—not only for the construction project but for your overall ministry.


Join Laborers For Christ

You can join Laborers For Christ to start helping LCEF with construction projects at LCMS ministries. When you become an Active Laborer, you’ll be able to empower ministry by working to help congregations, schools and organizations carry out their mission of sharing the Gospel.

Please complete the Laborers For Christ Application (PDF) or contact LCEF to become an Active Laborer or to express interest in an upcoming project.
