Part of our vision is to serve the world and make a difference in the lives of others. We accomplish this vision locally through outreach opportunities, partnerships with community organizations and serve days. Nationally, we invest in church planting and helping local churches become healthy and high-impact. Globally, we invest in intentional partnerships with organizations who are making a difference for Jesus. Check out the different opportunities to make a difference in our community and in the world.

Meeting Individual Needs
The coronavirus has created a lot of needs across our communities. Some have financial needs. Others need help picking up groceries. If you (or someone you know) has a need that we can help to meet, we will do our best to provide assistance. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will get back to you.
Buffalo Dream Center
