United Methodist Builders have been an important part of building churches all around the Iowa Annual Conference. United Methodist Builders have helped new congregations buy land or build their first church facility. United Methodist Builders have provided funds to help older congregations update their facilities, build new additions, to expand their ministries.
Builders Calls are made for specific churches which are either building new facilities or making major renovations. Recipient churches make application through their district office. Applicants are prayerfully reviewed by the District Parish Development Committee (Chair), the District Committee on Church Building and Location, the District Superintendent, by the Annual Conference Parish Development Committee and finally approved by the Bishop and Cabinet. Where possible one call each year is made on behalf of a recent new church start, and one for an established church building project.
Special consideration is given to emergency situations.
