Engage our city with the word of God

Join. Read. Engage.

Transform New York City

As an international cultural capital and traditional melting pot, New York City attracts international influencers and foreign-born citizens. The people in this city have the potential to spur worldwide change, to inspire a revival of Bible advocates.

But the Bible’s cultural influence in the city could be stronger. Only 29% of New Yorkers have read the Bible in the past week. God’s Word needs to be brought to life for the diverse people in our city with their varied backgrounds, world views, languages, and stories.

That’s why we’re collaborating with leaders and churches in NYC to engage with God’s Word. We’re working on the ground with ministry partners throughout New York City to reach people at coffee shops, parks, homeless shelters, and street vendors. Join local churches and ministries as together we see our city transformed through the life-changing message of the Bible.
