Arkansas Baptist Builders (ABB) love using their building skills to help people and share the gospel!  ABB is made up of volunteer teams from around the state and even out of state teams.

ABB is involved with local churches in Arkansas for:

  • remodel projects
  • renovation and expansion of existing church buildings
  • construction of new church facilities.

ABB also assists home owners in Arkansas with repairs and renovations when financial they cannot afford to hire contractors.

After the last Vilonia tornado, ABB lead and worked with teams from some 12 states that came to assist in the rebuild. One of the primary goals of ABB is to rebuild lives and minister to the families in need. On one job site in Vilonia we had a chance to witness to a family of 5 while working on their tornado damaged home. Within 30 minutes of sharing the gospel with them, the entire family of 5 made a profession of faith and accept Christ as Lord and Savior.

Nailbenders for Jesus is a construction ministry affiliated with the Arkansas Baptist State Convention.  As a volunteer group of mostly retired men and women, we feel called to help small to medium-sized congregations with new construction projects and additions including sanctuaries, educational facilities, fellowship halls, etc.  We serve throughout Arkansas and seek the Lord’s will in meeting the needs of churches we serve.   Nailbenders are always looking for new opportunities to serve and new members to join us in ministry (no experience required). See the Nailbenders for Jesus Construction Manual in the Resource area below.
