Locals Help Build A Church In A Day

Earlier this month, some members of the Jordan Hill United Pentecostal Church joined more than 300 volunteers from other churches and church associations to accomplish a feat that must have seemed insurmountable. The volunteers joined with others from the Hornbeck community, all around Louisiana, and neighboring states, and converged on the tiny community of Hornbeck, Louisiana, with a common goal in mind…to build a church in a day. After a very special prayer at the building site, work began at 7:00 a.m. on Friday morning, September 2. Church In A Day, or CIAD, assists congregations within the United Pentecostal Church, in building new church buildings, all in a single day. With CIAD, a church receives the equivalent of a $100,000 to $250,000 donation, and most importantly goes from an empty lot to a service-ready sanctuary. Before a church is constructed, certain criteria must be met. A local assembly must have land and the means for putting in a foundation.
