About this trip
The diversity of cultures in New York is one way to bring the Gospel to unreached people groups throughout the world. Almost every country in the world has a community or neighborhood in New York. In addition to these communities, there are over 100,000 people who are homeless in this city. The New York City Urban Missions Project partners teams with inner city ministries to bring the hope and life that Jesus gives to the many suffering people here.
Team members will be the hands and feet of Jesus as we work in rescue missions, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and relief centers as well as participate in outreaches with the local churches in these communities. Please prayerfully consider becoming a part of this team for a life-changing experience!
