Bringing the hope & healing of Christ to WNY and the world.

Christian Health & Ministry Center

by Debra Minotti

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens." Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

A Solid Foundation: Addiction Recovery Coach, Brad, writes scripture on the center floors before new carpeting is installed

After years of praying and your faithful partnership, now is the time to unlock the Christian Health and Ministry Center, the first in the country, which stands just blocks from the heart of the medical corridor.

It is a season where we have the liberty to worship & pray.

Side by side with the church, we have Christ-centered strategies for renewal, encouragement, and education. Mobilized, we then expand His kingdom through healthcare to WNY and beyond.

Please partner with us in prayer for continued favor.

We are incredibly grateful for our generous partners who have enabled us to rent this 2,000 sq ft. space. However, more funding is needed to see a successful launch.

Funds are needed immediately for:

New carpeting
AV equipment
Administrative costs

Memorial Bike Ride

12 bike riders attended the event honoring Drs. Mark Hoeplinger and Mark Hagen. David Holmes and Ron Vukman set the stage with remembrances of the Two Marks.

The weather was sunny and humid. Most of the riders circumnavigated Grand Island, a 21-mile loop. Two others added more miles by crossing the North Grand island Bridge to Niagara Falls and Goat Island.

To conclude, we enjoyed lunches together in the parking lot after the ride. Fun and Fellowship were had by all!
