history paul smile 3

For the last 12 years, Heart Check has been a key part of the identity of our church. Through Heart Check, we have given away more than $12 million to partner ministries here in the Southtowns, in the City of Buffalo, and around the world. We have built relationships with terrific people and organizations doing Kingdom work. The hearts of our own congregation have been transformed as so many of us have recognized our calling to care for those outside our walls. We invite you to join us on our next endeavor to press on through the pandemic and meet the needs God lays before us.

A Goal of $1.5 Million

From January 2021 until May 2022, our goal is to give $1.1 million to partner ministries and outreach as well as set aside $400,000 for key projects here at home. Scroll down to learn more about these partners and how we can help.



We are working with three partners whose work greatly affects the Southtowns. We will also dedicate around 25% of the collected funds to projects here at home. As a multi-site church, we have an ongoing responsibility to care for the campuses God has given us. Finally, we will be setting aside funds as we plan for a future campus in East Aurora.

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 in a variety of ways, from nutrition and job training to caring for those suffering from addiction or the horrors of human trafficking. We are committed to being a part of the solution right here in our hometown.

We will continue the strong partnerships we have built up in Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, India, and Lebanon in this campaign. We are also adding a new partner in Haiti. All of these organizations bring healing, hope, and the Word of God to people in desperate need of all three. We know what it is to feel anxiety during this time. Imagine how much more, then, our brothers and sisters in war-torn or persecuted areas must be going through. Now is certainly the time to press on and continue to support the remarkable work of these organizations.
