We believe everyone’s life is telling a story.

Most people are not satisfied with the story their life is telling but they don’t know how to change that. Jesus designed you for a different story, a better story, a New Story. We desire for people to discover the New Story that Jesus has for them. As a group we want to be a part of writing Jesus’ New Story for our city.

Scott Lackey

Scott & Kim have been married for over five years and are confident that God has called them to start New Story Church in Buffalo, NY.  They’ve awaited God’s timing for this exact calling- to plant a church together. Scott discovered his calling for ministry in high school, with a specific call to plant a church after his senior year. Kim knew her desire to be in ministry, but did not know how God would shape that until she met Scott in 2012.

In 2014, Scott worked at a church plant as the youth pastor and Kim volunteered as a youth leader. Together they started a middle and high school youth ministry. Being able to start something from the ground up excited both of them and really ignited their desire to bring the gospel to people. A few years later, Scott & Kim were both hired at The Chapel in Getzville, NY where they had the opportunity to continue to grow into the calling God had placed on their lives.

Scott and Kim are excited to see people step into the New Story that Jesus wants to tell in their lives, and they cannot wait to be a part of writing a new story of hope in Buffalo, NY. When they’re not at church, you can find them passionately cheering for the Bills, binge watching Netflix shows, and going to see every Marvel movie in theaters at least three times.
