In 1986 Central Alabama Christian Builders (CACB) began as a volunteer group of men, women, boys and girls to assist ministries and local churches in the construction of their buildings. Members of the group came from churches (most of which were Southern Baptist) throughout the central part of our state.
During the first 16 years, CACB participated in one out-of-state project and assisted with several in-state projects annually. As the number of volunteers grew so did the number of projects committed to each year (For a list of past projects visit our History page). This was evident in 2006 as the group made five out-of-state trips. 2006 also saw a significant increase in volunteers as a large group from South Carolina joined CACB. This increase helped equip the group not only for more projects but also larger scale projects. Two examples of large scale projects were the construction of Central Baptist Church in Lewistown, MT (2007), and Susannah Missionary Baptist Church in Milton, WV (2009).
Another milestone came when some of our leadership retired which enabled them to plan and lead multiple projects. This brought the opportunity to develop a sheetrock hanging and finishing team in addition to our framing crews. Along with these developments came leadership with the ability to rough in the electrical along side of the framing.
The summer of 2010 saw yet another milestone in the ministry. The leadership and various members of CACB stayed four weeks in Vallecito, CO to oversee and complete the entire construction of Vallecito Church from the foundation to the painting.
In 2008 CACB incorporated as a non-profit ministry with an elected board of directors and officers. The blessings of God upon CACB are obvious to all those who have been associated with this diverse group of devoted volunteers from many different congregations. As we enter our future service of the Lord we do so with great excitement due to His continual blessings of new volunteers and new projects.
