About HomeBuilders Ministry
HomeBuilders Ministry is an outreach of Rowland Road Baptist Church of Monroe, Louisiana, equipping families to live successfully God's way. It is the outgrowth and extension of a ministry of the HomeBuilders Sunday School Class developed over a number of years at Olive Street Baptist Church Pine Bluff, Arkansas by Larry and Thelnita Fincher.
Proverbs 24:3,4 "By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures." expresses the foundation of the ministry -- that an application of biblical principles on a daily basis with reliance upon the power of the Holy Spirit will build strong, stable families.
The ministry has and is developing practical teachings for the family in the areas of marriage, parenting, finances, leadership, and career.
These teaching are centered on both biblical principles (knowledge and understanding) and application (wisdom) pertaining to daily problems facing the family. Through learning and applying biblical principles the family can be all that God intended it to be.
