Pastors and Builders

We are a small group of area pastors and contractors on a mission to help rebuild communities on the Ridge devastated by the recent Camp Fire.

The Ridge:

The Ridge is the commonly referred to name of the areas affected by the Camp Fire, including the towns of Paradise, Magalia, Concow, and other small surrounding communities

The Camp Fire was sparked the morning of Nov 8, 2018. Within hours it had destroyed tens of thousands of structures in Concow, Paradise, Magalia, and the surrounding areas known as the Ridge. In total, over 150,000 acres, nearly 18,000 structures, and 86 lives were lost. The Camp Fire is the deadliest wildfire to date.
