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 encourage you to listen to God’s voice and discover the mission he wants you to invest in.
We are focusing our time, gifts and resources towards a few ministry organizations to make the largest, most meaningful impact for the kingdom. We call these organizations mission partners. They are:
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
Register to receive email notices and volunteer for opportunities to serve those in need on a local and global level. Check out some other great opportunities below.
ESL PROGRAM – In partnership with Redemption Church
ESL PROGRAM – We are in need of volunteers to help serve the children of adults who are attending Redemption’s English as a Second Language classes. We split time playing outside (weather permitting) and playing board games, hide and seek, and four corners. It’s so much fun!
The ESL Program meets every Monday evening following the Olathe school district calendar (winter break, spring break, etc).
We kick off this year on Monday, September 22nd., from 7-8:30pm, at Redemption Church (515 S. Ridgeview).

MISSION ADELANTE strives to serve the immigrants in our midst in ways that meet their most practical needs, and that demonstrate the love of Jesus. We have multi-level ESL classes for the adults, teens’ discipling ministries, and kids’ outreach Bible studies, for our Bhutanese and our Latino neighbors. We’d love to show you how easy it is to make a significant difference in the lives of our neighbors!

LOCAL SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP with Olathe East
LOCAL SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP with Olathe East – Heartland is a community partner of Olathe East High School.
Weekend Food: Many students receive free and reduced lunch during the week but lack adequate food over the weekend. Help is needed on Tuesday morning to shop for and transport food to the school, and on Thursday afternoon between 12:00 – 3:30pm (do not need to stay for the whole time) to organize food to fill over 50 backpacks each week.
Mentoring: Connect with and encourage a student throughout the school year.

THE HOPE CENTER
THE HOPE CENTER has lots of different ways you can help serve kids in the urban core. The medical clinic, K-5 school, community development effort and youth programs are beating the odds by meeting core needs in one of Kansas City’s most abandoned neighborhoods.
