WHERE CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN INTERSECT MINISTRY
Third Lens is a community of architects, engineers, planners, real estate and construction professionals who invest their Time, Talent and Treasure for eternal purposes.
That doesn’t always mean writing a check or traveling to a foreign country. It doesn’t even mean you have to work in the construction industry. Our community of volunteers often times work on projects from their home computers or office desks.
- Time: Time is our only non-replenishable resource. Many of our volunteers devote working hours to assist projects while others take personal time to contribute to a project or go on mission trips.
- Talent: Our volunteers donate their vocational giftings and skills. Some give professional services like architectural design or engineering, but talent comes in many forms and types.
- Treasure: Our volunteers are invested in the mission of Third Lens and its ministry partners. Many provide financial resources out of their abundance to assist with the impact the ministry is having on global missions. Donors are investing in a portfolio of projects across the world.
