New Creation Fellowship was founded in 1981 by Pastor Stephen J. Andzel and his wife Alice. The first services were held in the meeting room of a local hotel. Pastor Andzel then relocated the church to 430 Niagara Street on Buffalo’s west side, where the church rapidly grew. In a short time, the congregation of NCF exceeded the occupancy of that building and again relocated, this time to 1245 Niagara Street. Six years of growth and prosperity followed. Then in 1992, NCF purchased our current home in Cheektowaga, NY – 26,000 square feet situated on ten acres of land. We are excited about taking this community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
In 2005 New Creation Fellowship founded NCF Academy. Ever since Pastor and Alice knew they were called to the ministry, they knew God had also called them to start a school. They saw the need in the community for children to be raised up and trained in a Christian environment where they can be nurtured and taught the Word of God and learn how to operate in His kingdom.
2011 saw the beginning of the Joseph Business School of Buffalo. Dr. Bill Winston founded the Joseph Business School in Chicago as an avenue for entrepreneurs to establish God’s kingdom in their business. Since then Dr. Winston established more schools across the United States and the world. The Joseph Business School of Buffalo seeks “to provide practical teaching, resources, and a state-of-the-art environment that produces successful Christian entrepreneurs who will create income and employment opportunities for many others.”
