Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert.” – Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV)

The Vision

New York City. The largest US city by more than double. Home to over 1 million young adults between 18-24 and the largest foreign-born population of any city in the world. It is the concrete jungle, where dreams are made of, making NYC and its surrounding area one of the world’s best training grounds and places for vision and impact. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere and truly can change the world.

To bring revival and build the future of the church, we started a City Campus Region of the NYC church in Fall 2021. We have seen a healthy biblical ministry culture built, deep relationships developed, multiple people raised up into the ministry and the gospel changing many people’s lives.

In 2024, we want to see God take it higher. We have a tremendous team of Campus Ministers. However, with so many colleges and parts of the NYC metro area to reach, we are praying that God will call other men and women here to join our team and excel our progress. Young men and women who will have a huge impact and be taken to a greater place in their faith, spirituality and leadership.

We believe that God is doing a new thing in New York City and the surrounding area. We dream of a day when every college campus in NY and NJ has heard the gospel preached. Where young people from all walks of life are coming into Jesus’ Kingdom with a passion to build it and bring it to this influential city. We are already seeing God working in incredible ways and believe that with your help he can do even greater things. Come and be a part of it.

This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Once again I will yield to Israel’s plea and do this for them: I will make their people as numerous as sheep, as numerous as the flocks for offerings at Jerusalem during her appointed festivals. So will the ruined cities be filled with flocks of people. Then they will know that I am the Lord.” – ‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭36:37‭-‬38‬ (NIV)
