    "The provision of $30,000 in Matching Funds by AGTrust, in partnership with Church Multiplication Network, did more than help us plant Lumber City Church. It helped the congregation implement creative ways to inspire multiplication and foster spiritual health in all areas of ministry and allowed us to replicate a local model for multiplication that continues to plant other churches today."

Founding pastor Chad Rieselman

    Lumber City Church (LCC) in North Tonawanda, New York, was planted in 2012 with the help of Matching Funds provided by AGTrust members. Today it is thriving! This church is a sterling example of how we can help transform America through church planting and multiplication.

    LCC collaborates with other local churches and agencies to engage in sustained, meaningful compassion ministry and evangelism outreach. A significant low-income and single parent population in North Tonawanda has been a particular focus.

    Chad and Christina frequently remind their congregation that their mission in North Tonawanda must also be turned outward to a global field. LCC has helped fund the planting of other churches in New York and overseas.

    Lumber City Church acquired the buildling they call "The Hope Center" (below) a few months ago. With a full court gymnasium, functioning school kitchen and cafeteria/auditorium, LCC's facility offers opportunity to reach out to the city in a variety of ways.


    Box of Hope is a partnership between LCC and 3-4 other partner churches in North Tonawanda. The school district identifies needs in students' families, and the churches mobilize to meet those needs. In 2016, more than $34,000 in life-giving resources were distributed to families.
