We were planted in 2008 by our lead pastors, Jon and Yolande Hasselbeck, by 15 different churches of different denominations. Jon has been in ministry for over 40 years and has always worked to unite the church of Western New York together. Our vision has always been to reach young people. Jon and Yolande had a vision to reach college students at the University at Buffalo, so our location is near the north campus. in 2020 we launched our second campus in the City of Buffalo in one of poorest areas of the city. God is working to change the neighborhood across the entire Buffalo area!
