We partner with local organizations to make an impact in their communities through our renovation projects.
We come alongside these organizations with tangible needs to assist them in rebuilding or updating their property. Through these projects we equip organizations to advance their work in the community and empower their vision for their city.See Projects

Who We Have Served
"We could never have afforded to do the renovations needed to open a 3rd house without the partnership of Servant’s Heart. Because of these precious, hardworking servants of the Lord, lives will be rebuilt for many years to come until the Lord returns."
Executive Director, Madison Avenue Crossroads, Paterson, NJ
“Their labor of love has been outstanding. Servant’s Heart has minimized our challenges and our obstacles tremendously. Without them, we would not be embarking on this project today.”
Reverend Robert L. DeVeaux
The Humanity Baptist Church, Newark, NJ
“What Servant’s Heart does in engaging the gifts, skills and passions of folks and plugging them into ministry and the needs of different organizations is incredible.”
Executive Director, New City Kids, Paterson, NJ

Pastor Richard Jones
Bridgeway Community Church, Haledon, NJ
"To all of Servant’s Heart, volunteers and vendors, you are greatly appreciated by the Prophetic Church of God. These acts of kindness clearly reveal the wonderful, Spirit- filled, giving ministry you are, with the sweet grace of God. Every hammer, ruler, nail, saw, and board magnify and glorify His Name."
Rev. Warren MC Dowell
Senior Pastor, Prophetic Church of God
"The amazing work to our fellowship hall and kitchen will allow us to ministry to the community in a new way and provide a beautiful space to share the love of God. Every volunteer that crossed over the threshold of Grace Gospel Church truly exemplified a Servant's Heart."
Rev. Sarah Anthony
Co-Pastor, Grace Gospel
"Stan was at our Church almost every day and never tired of our questions or requests, always responding humbly, professionally, and honestly. We became a strong team that worked in love. We are so grateful and appreciative of Servant’s Heart, that we continually pray for you all."
Rev. Norman Sheriff
Senior Pastor, St. Gabriels
"Servant’s Heart recently renovated my bathrooms and kitchen and it's been such a great glessing! I had to put the house on the market last year because I could not afford the cost of the repairs that were needed to continue the ministry. I thought this part of my ministry was coming to an end. Only God had a different plan - to let the work continue, and in an even greater way!
No amount of thankfulness can adequately express how grateful I am for everyone’s hard work at Servant’s Heart. I'm so grateful for their love for the Lord and compassion for the children I serve. Their ministry is impacting the children's lives and making a life changing difference in their future."
Founder & Director, Street Hope Alive
"Christ Church has been blessed tremendously by the Fellowship and work from Servant's Heart Ministries. The renovation of the basement is the latest project that was done and this is the most amazing work of Love that I have experienced from a group of people who persevered by showing/sharing God's love. Now, we have more space in doing the work that God has called us to do in ministry. This is an experience that I will always cherish. For example, seeing the group fellowshipping with us, while dining on the breakfast and lunch prepared by some of our church members. To God be the Glory for what He has done."
Member, Christ Church United Methodist
"Bethel Church of God in Christ was impacted by Hurricane Ida in September 2021. The church has been blessed to learn about Servant Heart Ministry and its services. Servant Heart put its name to work by helping Bethel Church with many repairs, including helping on an urgent basis.
The Servant Heart Ministry team is assisting Bethel's Family Enrichment and Community Empowerment Center by helping to put on a new roof, removing items from the building, striping the walls and ceilings, and much more.
Servant Heart's support is enabling Bethel to 'Better Serve' the community. We are extremely grateful to each team volunteer who has helped Bethel in its journey of helping others."
Pastor Andrew Smith
Lead Pastor, Bethel Church of God
"I speak for the entire leadership of Bethany Church when I say how grateful we are for Servants Heart Ministry. Our congregation has been energized by having our members serve alongside Servants Heart’s skilled volunteers each week. “Sweat equity” has a way of empowering people toward a greater stewardship of the church family, and of the facility God has given us."
Pastor Zach Guyton
Lead Pastor, Bethany Evangelical Free Church
