Living in RV Full-Time as Construction Missionary Workers

Imagine living in an RV full-time with your family, traveling from one construction site to another. That may sound like a demanding and stressful lifestyle, but for construction missionary workers, it's an exciting and fulfilling way of life. Construction missionaries sacrifice much to give care, aid, and support to the needy, all for the love of God. In this post, we'll uncover a little of the life of construction missionary workers living in RVs full-time and how you can support their cause.

First of all, construction missionary workers are a unique set of people who are called to work with their hands and serve God through building homes, churches, schools, and other community projects. They travel the country and work in all kinds of weather and terrain to bring help to people in need. Living in an RV full-time may seem daunting, but it allows them to be close to the construction site and to work efficiently. It's a way for these workers to share God's love through practical actions and to let those in need know that they are not alone.

Living in an RV full-time presents many challenges that some may not expect, such as the incessant need to fix things in the RV, sleeping in a confined space with family members, and finding a place to park the RV overnight. Finding an internet signal and where to "dump" are always a challenge too. But these challenges are just a small price to pay in exchange for the fulfillment of doing God's work.

If you have ever dreamed of living full-time in an RV, in tight quarters with family, giving God all you have, physically and spiritually, and would like more information, please contact us, Ken and Margaret Heaton. We are always ready and willing to talk about our ministry, Priscilla and Aquila MInistries, giving hints, telling you our tales from the road and extending a praying hand to you.

One of the many joys of living in an RV full-time is the sense of community that develops among construction missionary workers. We meet fellow workers on the construction site, where we often stay for an extended period. We establish friendships with the people we serve, who sometimes offer to park the RV on their property or host a dinner for the group. These connections build an extended network of friends, many of whom become lifetime friends.

These friendships develop around a sense of serving God in each one's unique purpose God designed for each. We become a support system for other workers' spiritual journey. Without a home church and the family it provides, life on the road as an RV missionary can be lonely, but the support from other RVer's is important.

Another advantage of living in an RV full-time is that we workers can take our family on our journey of service. While we don't have small children, many people choose to include their children and grandchildren in the RV ministry lifestyle. By doing this, you are able to expose children to different cultures, languages, and people who are in need. It's a unique educational experience in which the children learn to be compassionate and understand the value of helping others, even when it's not easy. Children often learn sacrifice and service go hand-in-hand.

Lastly, you can support construction missionary workers by providing them with the resources they need. Churches can host workers, RV parks can offer discounts, and individuals can donate financially or offer physical assistance at construction sites. Construction missionaries sacrifice so much to spread the message of God's love, and it's essential to support them with time, resources, and prayers.


Living in an RV full-time is not for everybody, but for construction missionary workers, it's the sacrifice we are willing to make for God's purpose. The lifestyle presents significant challenges, but the payoff is immeasurable. The sense of community, fulfillment, and impact are priceless. Everyone has a role to play in supporting construction missionaries, and whether it's through hosting, donating, or offering assistance, every bit counts. Construction Missionaries represent the best of humanity through their dedication and commitment to serve others, and who knows, you might just be inspired to take your family on the journey of service as well.
