About Finish The Wall

Since 2004, Finish the Wall has been dedicated to completing unfinished churches and other humanitarian efforts that have been left in some phase of construction without a plan for funding or completion. The ministry has finished six projects in countries such as Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Barbados, Trinidad, and Tobago. The ministry, which is based in South Charlotte, received 501(c)3 non-profit status in 2007.

OUR STORY

Finish the Wall takes its name from the story of Nehemiah, and his vision to complete the wall around Jerusalem, which had fallen into disrepair.

Our inspiration is from Paul’s words to the church in Corinth, “Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means.” (II Cor. 8:11)

It all began in 2004 when a group of men from a church in Charlotte, NC went to Barbados on a construction mission trip. They spent seven days working on a 12,000 square foot building that had been in some phase of construction for 12 years.

After additional trips, and much progress, founder Joel Davis, felt called to start a ministry that focused on the completion of unfinished projects in a timely manner. Finish The Wall was established as a non- profit in 2007, and later returned to Barbados with 39 people from 9 churches, to finish the original project together.

Since that time, FTW has completed additional projects, usually one per year, sending 4 separate teams of people, over a 5-week period, to complete a project from beginning to end.

OUR MISSION
