New York Mennonite Conference continues to engage with various churches and emerging ministries on the West Side of Buffalo. Buffalo Chin Emmanuel Church is a full member of NYMC; their passionate faith is an inspiration to others. We are also building a relationship with another Chin congregation on the West Side. Keith Kristich leads a discipleship house of young adults at 440 Plymouth. Every other month leaders from five Anabaptist related congregations/ministries meet on the West Side for prayer, engaging with the Word, mutual support, and planning. In the summer of 2014 one hundred people enjoyed the first joint Anabaptist picnic at Queen City Farms. Alden Mennonite Church and Clarence Center Akron Mennonite Church from the eastern suburbs of Buffalo are integrally involved in ministry in Buffalo.
