The HEART Ministry was created in 2012 as Hosanna Church's response to natural disasters. It has expanded to include community disaster assistance, individual and family emergencies and a specialized prayer ministry.
HEART is a ministry of Hosanna Church that demonstrates God's love by serving communities in need.
HEART is a Jesus-centered ministry operating through a network of churches, ministries, and businesses to build relationships in the community. We are a locally and nationally known Kingdom Distribution Center providing building resources, housewares, food, and prayer to rebuild hearts and homes.
