Be a Messenger

Heart Check is our annual opportunity to engage in ministry outside the walls of our campuses. It is a call for us to serve others in our local communities, in our city, and globally. We are called to pray for those whom we partner with as they love people and share the Gospel. We also have a chance to serve in tangible ways with our time and talents and to give of our resources to make this work possible. We hope you'll join us on this adventure as we participate with God's work in the world!

"...for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.' How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: 'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!'"

Local Initiatives

The greatest value we can bring to our communities is to mobilize our people to serve in and at existing community activities & initiatives which will build trust, create curiosity, and give visibility to how God is working in and around them. You'll find us in Hamburg, Eden, Evans, Springville, and East Aurora. We invite you to get involved at your campus and make an impact on your neighborhood!


Regional Initiatives

We have many terrific partners in the City of Buffalo and the larger Western New York region. These organizations reach people in the darkest of circumstances with the Gospel. And they do it by caring for the whole individual—providing spiritual and Gospel-centered love and support while meeting practical and physical needs. We are committed to being a part of the solution right here in our hometown.


Global Initiatives

Our partners around the world bring healing, hope, and the Word of God to people in desperate need of all three. We have supported these ministries and the hard work they do for many years. Now more than ever, as persecution against Christians grows in some of these places, we need to continue pushing back against the darkness and helping these organizations reach more people for Jesus. 


Legacy Partners

Legacy Partners are individuals in the mission field that we support as they reach people for Jesus. Their work is varied and takes place all over the world. We’ve been in relationship with these individuals for years, sometimes decades, and it’s a blessing to see the fruit of their ministries.
