Can dreams really come true in the city that never sleeps?
New York is the ultimate destination for people to chase their greatest hopes and dreams. Whether for Broadway or business, visitors stream in from all corners of the globe.
The largest city in the United States, more than 8 million people call New York City home. As the major port of entry for immigration, New York is one of the most culturally diverse areas of the US—as many as 800 languages can be heard in New York City.
With this many people and this many cultures, ministry opportunities are limited only by your imagination.
Your team could meet up with New Yorkers in one of the city’s parks, developing relationships and connecting with individuals from different cultures. Nowhere else would you have the opportunity to connect with people from so many different religious backgrounds and share the story of Jesus.
Despite its appearance of prosperity, New York also has a high population of homeless. Connect with a local homeless ministry and serve the people that society passes by. Show them the grace of Jesus and let them know that God has not forgotten them.
Your team may take on the challenge of hunger. Cook and serve meals in one of the city’s soup kitchens, nourishing people’s souls and bodies when they’re not able to help themselves.
Of course, you’ll find time to experience the brighter side of New York as well. Ride the subway, visit Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, or ride to the top of the Empire State Building…New York is ready for you!
Come to the Big Apple and share the love of Christ throughout this multicultural metropolis!
