Spring-breakers from Wittenberg University infuse housing ministry with young energy

Wittenberg University of Springfield, Ohio, may be a small liberal arts college, but their students have a big impact on their community. Dozens work with the local Clark County Fuller Center for Housing throughout the year, providing about 80 percent of the volunteer hours that have helped them complete 16 new homes in the past three years, according to Clark County FCH construction leader Dave Holly.

This week, about 50 Wittenberg University students are spending their spring breaks serving other Fuller Center communities in their first experience with The Fuller Center’s U.S. Builders program — working with Fuller Center covenant partners in Tallahassee, Fla., Albany, Ga., and Perry, Ga.

WMAZ-TV of Macon, Ga., made the short trip down I-75 on Monday to catch up with the 10 Wittenberg students who are working in Perry. You can view the WMAZ report in the video below, and then check out the photo gallery from their first day on the job.
