ARE YOU HERE FOR THIS?

The reasons people move to New York City are endless - career ambition, new relationships, a fresh start, education opportunities, or more.  We believe God has brought you here for something deeper, something greater - a kingdom purpose.  We believe God has called you here for mission.  No matter why you are in New York, or for how long, we are inviting you to a greater ambition - to live in the Way of Jesus for the Renewal of the City.  We are committed to practicing and pursuing the Kingdom of God in the middle of our city, to see lives changed, to see hearts awakened, to see people come to know Jesus and the power of the Spirit.  What are you here for?  Are you here for this?

WHICH MINISTRY TEAM IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

We've been working hard over the past few months to design our teams, to make sure that everyone has a place to belong, contribute, and lead.  In its simplest expression, a "ministry" is a larger gathering of multiple "teams" (with a few exceptions).  For Vision Conference, we'll do a breakout session in the afternoon where we ask you to meet with your ministry, and your team.

If you don't know which ministry team you're on - feel free to join the one that feels like the best fit for you (some of the teams have special requirements, like auditions or background checks).  If you are open to serving in whatever is needed, feel free to join a "ministry" and let the ministry leaders place you on a team.

If you're part of multiple ministries or teams, that's great!  We'd ask you to sign up for the ministry where you are most committed to leading.  For example, if you're a community group leader, but you also help with hospitality, come to the community group ministry training.


  ONE // HOSPITALITY MINISTRY  This ministry helps us make sure everyone feels like they are home.  That they've found a family.  This is a robust meaning of the word "hospitality" - to extend a thoughtful and loving welcome to anyone who enters a gathering or a group.  Hospitality is a way of welcoming people through proactive service.  The hospitality ministry is under the leadership of Amber Yager in the new year.   1.

  TWO // WORSHIP + PRAYER MINISTRY   This ministry is on the front lines of intercession - helping us continually call up on the Lord, proclaim his goodness and worthiness to the world, and invite him to do a new thing in our lives, in our community, and in our city.  Worship is the work, prayer is the work.  The Lord rewards those who seek them - we will be people who seek him.  This is at the very heart of what we do as a community.  The worship and prayer ministry is under the leadership of Isaac and Emily Gay.   1.

  THREE // COMMUNITY GROUPS MINISTRY  Community is everything.  If we have the best Sunday experience, or the best teaching, but people aren't known by others, or they don't have a place where they can ask questions and work out their discipleship, then formation simply won't happen.  We're committed to making space for people to belong and be known.  We want to practice the Way of Jesus together.  We want to cultivate friendship and family that surprises the world.   This ministry is under the leadership of Tyler Prieb.   1.
