Church As Family

We believe that Jesus left His family to create family for those that don’t have family.

Our missional communities are groups of 10 - 25 people who are learning to live as an extended family that exists to serve specific people in our neighborhood. Our hope is that each missional community would grow in relationship with one another, grow in relationship with God, and consistently reach out into the community, serving people with both humility and tact. Our missional communities meet for a meal and to learn together every week.

Our Communities

Our vision is to launch new groups of people that begin eating together, learning together, listening to their neighborhood together, and celebrating the love of God with one another. Our aim is to help more and more people experience the church not simply as an institution, but as an extended family set apart to bless NYC. To join an established community or to help launch a new one request more info below.
