The Beginning

Nickel City Church began with real people in mind. We launched with a passion to meet each person exactly where they are, and help them take their next steps in a more real and genuine relationship with God! (You can read more about the heart of our pastors by clicking HERE).

For the past few years, we have been facilitating this mission in a small storefront property right in the heart of Kenmore, NY. In this space, people come in and experience God in real ways, and are changed by Him; people are called up from the mundane motions of every day life and into unique God-given purpose; people find life-giving community that builds them up; through Sunday morning sermons, life groups, serve teams, relationships, and other resources people become equipped to make a difference for in this city!

People who had once given up on church and even God are now attending regularly, growing in their knowledge and understanding of God, serving on a team and finding family, and being equipped to apply their faith in real and practical ways!

The Burden

NCC has always been and will continue to be a place where community, discipleship, and life transformation happen...this has always been the goal, only now God is leading us into a season where the mission can be expanded!

We aren't called to simply get through Sunday morning services. God has given us burden to completely shift the spiritual culture of Buffalo, NY!

 Currently Buffalo is on the top 25 list of the most unchurched cities in America. What that means is that 46% of our community has no connection to a local church. Think about it...that means almost half of our friends, family, neighbors and coworkers are not connected to ANY church whatsoever here in Buffalo!

A more recent study shows that Buffalo was also listed in the top 15 cities that would be considered "POST-Christian"...that means that not only are people in Buffalo just not going to church, but they have lost their faith and walked away from God completely.

We aren't okay with this! We know that God desires for people to be close to Him, and experience His love and truth and grace in real and tangible ways. That is why we are pursuing a property only a mile away from our current space; one that has more than 4 parking spots, and enough room to grow. Not only in numbers of people, but in our ability to accommodate the expanded vision and mission to which God has called us!

The Road to renovation

This is a big mission, and our church cannot do it alone...we need more people to be a part of it!
What is impossible on our own, is possible when we all work together.

Goal 1: $150,000 to secure the loan for the purchase of this property (by April 3rd)
Goal 2: $650,000 to renovate the space to "move in" ready!

There are two ways people, churches, and businesses can partner...
1.) A one time monetary donation now to help us reach $150k
2.) Pledging a designated amount over time (see giving pledge below)

Currently, the new location is completely gutted! So over the course of the next two years, we will be raising funds and renovating the space as needed with walls, floors, lighting, bathrooms, and so much more.

These seems like a big project...because it is! But we know transforming the city of Buffalo is worth every penny. Rather than looking to simply raise money, we are looking specifically for partners, investors, and visionaries who believe in the mission enough to partner and give!

This isn't simply about brick and mortar, this is about changing lives and transforming this city.
PARKING LOT
In our current space, we only have FOUR parking spaces! With the purchase of this new building, we gain a whole parking lot. That means access to parking will be easy and stress free. People and families will no longer feel turned away because they couldn't find a place to park.

AUDITORIUM
A 300 seat auditorium will more than triple our current capacity, creating more space for new faces. We will be able to accommodate more people who will experience God, discover their purpose, build life-giving community, and become equipped to make a difference in this city!

NICKEL CITY KIDS
Our new Kid's wings will offer more safety and security and accommodate more families! With classrooms, multi-purpose rooms, and more, there will be plenty of space for kids to learn about Jesus, be discipled, and have room to invite their friends! A safe and secure entrance through Kid's Check-in will foster a controlled environment.

LOBBY/WELCOME CENTER
A large lobby means more relational space for mingling, making a friend, seeing a neighbor, or building life-giving relationships. The lobby will be a place that is warm and welcoming with designated space to stay awhile. This area will provide opportunities for community all week long.

AND MORE...
This new building offers even more room for additional multi-purpose rooms, offices, and more that grants us room to truly be a HUB FOR CHANGE in Buffalo, NY! 

Every penny counts!
