A Letter from Pastor James Giles

Dear Community:

“All of us in the Back to Basics Outreach Ministries Inc. family wish to welcome you to our new web-site. Although our new web-site is a work in progress (like our actual work every day), I want to alert you to its existence and invite your interest and support. We will be expanding and enhancing our site in the coming weeks and invite you to stay tuned as we proceed. We plan share videos, a newsletter, blog and ongoing updates about our many and growing programs and services. We appreciate your continuing good faith and support as we grow our web presence and our faithful service to those most in need in the City of Buffalo and surrounding communities.


​Please return here often to see our progress.


Your faithful servant,
​Pastor James Giles ”
