Dear Friend,

We are a month into 2018, and God is moving in No Heart Left Behind as we have a lot of exciting news for you! As always, we start off our year meeting with our board and evaluate our past year of ministry and pray and discuss where we believe the ministry is headed. We set our goals for 2018 and drew on the strengths and gifts of everyone in the room to accomplish those goals.

Secondly, many of you have been asking about our annual fundraiser, “The Chance for Romance.” Well it is back again this year but with a new name and a new venue! NHLB’s Heart and Soul Gala with 4 Unplugged will be held on Friday, March 9th from 7-10pm. This year, we will host this popular event at a brand new location, Keith Young’s The Greystone in Madisonville. Tickets can be purchased by visiting our events page.
