Where your gifts go

Like any church, we employ staff and pay for space. And yet our core value of mobility affords us the unique opportunity to use your donations to more effectively offer assistance to individuals and families in need, give to local organizations that serve the High Country, and support efforts to make a difference globally:


  • Benevolence —Regularly we are contacted by people in our community who are in need of short-term financial assistance. Whether it's helping pay a utility bill, covering a hotel room for the night, filling up a tank of gas, or whatever it might be, we have a process in place to determine how we can financially and spiritually help our friends.

  • Hope Pregnancy Resource Center—Based in Boone, this local agency works to empower women with unplanned pregnancies and helps them make informed choices. theHeart provides a monthly donation to support that mission.

  • Hospitality House—An area organization that offers at-risk residents with housing, nutrition, and prevention in a safe, nurturing, and healthy environment. theHeart provides money and volunteers for a meal to be provided on the third Sunday of each month for more than 150 people.

  • Meniscus—Our partnership helps Meniscus work in under-served areas of the world and High Country for the relief of the poor, distressed, and underprivileged by the transformation and development of healthy families, communities, and cultures. 

  • Emoyeni (South Africa)—theHeart budget gives monthly to this ministry based in South Africa, which was created in response to the country’s rural orphan crisis. Through this partnership, we have the opportunity to sponsor the children with whom we have an ongoing relationship. We lead trips to South Africa, and in 2014 theHeart was able to fully fund a Care Point, built especially to provide kids with safety, food, and loving support.

  • Wine to Water—theHeart budget gives monthly to Wine to Water, an international humanitarian organization that is providing clean water in sustainable and repeatable ways to as many communities as possible. We are in relationship with their leadership team and encourage people to volunteer with them, both in Boone and around the globe.
