So what is Faith Builders Ministry?
Mike and Naida Poirier
I retired from the Army in 1994 and lost my way in the world. I ended up in prison and it was truly the best thing that could have happened. There Christ rescued me from my depravity (John 3:19) and made me whole again. Since my release in 2006 I have worked in some form of ministry, either prison or construction/disaster relief and sometimes both.
My lovely wife Naida and I serve as Missionaries from Pioneer Valley Baptist Church, Chicopee, MA. We are currently headquartered in Jackson, MS. We were sent to the mission field in 2012 to help Rebuild Lakeshore, a ministry of Lakeshore Baptist Church in Lakeshore, MS complete its post Katrina building projects. We had been serving there part time for many years before being called into full time service. While there my wife worked the Mercy House distribution center and I worked as project manager/volunteer coordinator also serving as Sr. Volunteer Chaplain at the local Hancock county jail.
Since completing that project in late 2015 we relocated to Jackson MS to assist a church, in building a new sanctuary, there that had come to help in Lakeshore many times. But due to many circumstances the focus for the ministry has changed some and expanded over the past 24 months. For a full list of what we offer please see the SERVICES OFFERED page. This November (2017) I was honored to be accepted as a associated member of the Reformed Baptist Network (RbNet).
In addition I am the director of Faithful Steward Ministries and FSM Women’s Outreach a Christian outreach ministry; to those with addictions, incarcerated and our veterans, which we started back in 2006. I continue to serve as Chaplain on the Southern Route of Run For The Wall each May as we ride our motorcycles across America bringing awareness of the thousands of Missing and POW American Service members still unaccounted for. Between us my wife and I have two beautiful daughters 3 sons and 11 grandchildren and 2 great grandchild.
In January 2018 we were happy to have Anthony join the team of FBM when he too relocated from New England to Mississippi. tony brings a wealth of roofing, carpentry and cabinet making experience with him and will be a great asset to the team.
Occasionally we get homeowners or customers who do more than just thank us for our service(s) and with their permission of course we will share them here with you.
