But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8
Church Planting Vision
WE SEE A CHURCH that multiplies! We are a part of a church planting movement and are sensing a fresh calling from God for us to partner with Him in pursuing not just the Cedar Valley, but all of Northeast Iowa. We see 30 satellite campuses that will be planted out of this vision over the next 30 years.

Street Ministry – Thursday Night
Are you looking for adventure to spice up your Christian walk?
Thursday evenings our Street Ministry teams venture into areas of the Cedar Valley to reach the lost, the broken, and the hungry to minister the love of Jesus.
We meet at the church at 6:00 p.m. and pray as a team. Then we go where God directs us. Experience God’s presence as we pray for people while we walk different neighborhoods in our community.
We are led by the Holy Spirit and go where He says to go. We welcome everyone, young, old, students and youth, even parents pushing little ones in strollers. We invite you to join us and you can step out as much as you desire. You are certainly welcome to join us just to “shadow” us or watch and ask questions. You won’t even need to talk to anyone we meet if you don’t want to. Come as you are, but come expectant. God will amaze you.
For more information contact Corey Peters at 319-215-6212.

In 1995, Pastor Fred and Debbie Collum moved to Mazatlan, taking a small team of nationals with them. They held a twenty-one day tent crusade and a few months later, started Sunday services in a five-star hotel in Mazatlan’s “Golden Zone”. Since then, the Golden Zone church has planted two other churches in colonias (communities) in Mazatlan. As of April 2014, there are 14 children’s feeding centers and a children’s scholarship program that sponsors and registers children for school who have never attended before (nearly 400 kids were sponsored in 2014). Sixteen thousand bags of groceries were given to the poor. The church also operates a mobile kitchen that has fed thousands of children and adults in Mazatlan’s poorest colonias; and plans are being made for starting a school for children whose parents are “dump scroungers.” The church now has land in other colonias for future church plants in Mazatlan.
Heartland Vineyard is currently working with Fred to grow his ministry through financial support and child sponsorships.
