MasterKey Ministries is God's vision for reaching our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Instead of preaching on a street corner (nothing wrong with that!), we look for ways to fill significant needs for those that face instability, develop loving relationships with those we serve, and earn the right to share our faith. Does that mean that we only serve those that share our beliefs? Absolutely not! We count it our privilege to provide assistance to everyone...regardless of who they are and what they believe.

In 2019, MasterKey Ministries launched its first annual fundraising event called HeART to Heart. Using art as our theme, we offered local artist-designed preschool chairs based on famous book themes at a silent auction, displayed three Canstructions built by community businesses, and shared our story with more than 200 attendees. We envisioned physical ways to demonstrate our three core aspects of our mission: food assistance improves the quality of life for a person with limited resources TODAY, education for children and adults empowers families for a better TOMORROW, and sharing faith in Jesus Christ that will impact their lives FOREVER. It was a wonderful success!

In March of 2020, after many months of preparation and for the completion of four new Canstructions, our event was canceled as our community shut down in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Fortunately, our four great participating Canstruction businesses and schools' work was preserved on video and shared here for you to view.

By 2021, MasterKey has determined to celebrate HeART to Heart Annual Fundraising Event in a unique and safe way. Instead of an on-site luncheon, we have opted to recognize our community partners through a Day at MasterKey Ministries. Company banners were prominently displayed and each volunteer proudly sported a company tee shirt. As families moved up in line to receive their food, MasterKey proudly shared that we are able to do what we do because of the help of our community partners.
