Heartland on Mission
We exist to equip and challenge people to invest in others. Our hope is all followers of Jesus will lovingly sacrifice for the sake of the Gospel. We want to encourage you to listen to God’s voice to discover the mission he wants for you to personally invest in.
We are focusing our attention, gifts and resources towards a few ministry organizations so we can make the largest, most meaningful impact as possible for the kingdom. We call these organizations mission partners. They are:
- Mission Adelante
- The Hope Center
- Angel Tree Project
- History Makers Church, Bryansk, Russia
- Building water wells in Haiti
We also focus on various needs within our own church community:
- Our Food Pantry - Food Pantry List
- Local School Partnership with Olathe East
- ESL Program in Partnership with Redemption Church
