Faith In Housing: An Initiative for Congregations to Create Affordable Housing

More than 130 people joined us for "Faith In Housing: A Workshop For Congregations To Create Affordable Housing" at Mayfield Memorial Baptist Church. Six congregations presented their affordable housing initiatives. Other speakers provided frameworks for evaluating congregational resources, ideas for innovative architecture, and a vision for neighborhood collaboration, plus info about the housing bond referendum.

Let's Discuss!


  1. Loved hearing about all the great things that are happening from supporting organizations to Covenant’s big plans to help fund apartments. Can’t wait to hear what other congregations will do after being inspired at Faith in Housing!

  2. A real community learning event. Thank you Greenspon Center for putting this together and Mayfield Memorial for hosting. It was inspiring to see such creativity and collaboration in addressing the affordable housing needs in Charlotte.

  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be actually something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems tooo complex aand
    extremely broad for me. I am looking fkrward for yokur next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!

  4. Join us for Faith In Housing II on Saturday, March 30, 11 am – 12:45 pm at Mosaic Village on the Johnson C. Smith University campus.
    We will share how congregations in our community are creating affordable housing, including a panel discussion and Q&A.
    A donation of $10 to cover the cost of box lunch is requested at the door, but not required.
