Millard Fuller

“Millard would not want people to mourn his death,” Linda said. “He would be more interested in having people put on a tool belt and build a house for people in need.”

We hosted Millard Fuller at Trinity on the Hill & ASU a year ago. The co-founder of Habitat for Humanity & the Fuller Center for Housing died Monday. His life was transformed by practical life application of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and by characters such as Clarence Jordan of Konoinia Farms who in similar ways tried to express a social holiness for the world today.

"Millard was buried humbly on Pine Hill at Koinonia Farm on February 4 at 11 a.m. Millard wished to be buried in the same manner as his spiritual mentor and friend Clarence Jordan, Koinonia’s founder. Like Clarence, Millard was laid to rest in a simple box and has no specific marker for his grave."
