Building4God Outreach

About us

is a Christian Organization that focuses on human empowerment and providing solutions to the ills in society. This humanitarian organization was born in 2013 from a desire to build a new church building for the St. Joseph Catholic Community in the village of Umon-Okon in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria.

This amber of desire caught fire and set the hearts of many generous individuals in the United States of America ablaze. These individuals contributed greatly in planning, dedication, zeal, and fundraising. And this desire transformed into a new state-of-the-art Church Building for St. Joseph Catholic Church, Umon-Okon, Ikot Ekpene Diocese.

Father Simon has spread the love of Christ far and wide, touching lives, hearts and whole communities wherever he goes.

Even though he is based in the United States of America, he has not forgotten his land of birth. He has supported the education of some of the impoverished children in his community.  Reverend Father Akan Simon has provided shelter to the homeless, especially the widows.  A strong advocate for women’s dignity and well being, he founded and spiritually mentors Our Lady of Fatima Women Association (OLOFWA), a registered non-governmental organization.  This organization focuses on the welfare of the women in our society in general, and the Umon-Okon Catholic Community in particular.

True to his lineage, Reverend Father Akan Simon grew up in a family where giving is a tradition. He never stops making positive impacts in the lives of the less privileged around him and beyond.
