New York City, NY Overview

NYC has 5 distinct boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island) with just over 8 million people. With a population of over 22 million people, NYC’s population is larger than 39 US states—more than twice of LA, the second largest city in the country, and more than 27 times the population of Buffalo, the second largest city in New York state.

NYC is often considered the most cosmopolitan city in the United States with residents from over 180 different countries. It is the headquarters of the United Nations. Immigrants of Irish, Italian, Chinese, Korean, Puerto Rican, Mexican, Dominican, Jamaican, Iranian, Arab, Greek, African, Jewish (and more) origin all have enclaves within the city. Ironically, NYC has a higher Jewish population than Jerusalem.

Ministry Focus

CityConnexx was born in the heart of Manhattan when Founder Dean Cowles was called to urban ministry while reading Amos & Isaiah on the steps of Lambs Church in Times Square as a seminary summer intern in 1982.

There’s no place like New York. You’ve heard it said and it’s true, “A City so nice they named it twice. Or as David Letterman likes to say every night on his show, “the greatest city in the world”. And we think he might be right.

To experience NYC is to explore the world. It has more cultures and ethnic populations than any other city on the planet. It’s just a huge magnet. Therefore the cause of Christ needs to be proclaimed “in the city that never sleeps”.

We will take you to places that need to hear the good news of the gospel. We’ll explore the many diverse neighborhoods, serve folks where they are and meet the needs where they are. Don’t come with your own agenda, too many do. We custom design a mission trip for you based on God’s agenda for change and transformation.

We could say a lot more but maybe pictures and videos speak louder than words.

"Be apart of what God is doing in the New York City and join us as we aim to live out the Gospel and proclaim Jesus in the streets of the city. Witness the Holy Spirit transform lives right before your eyes and go home with a new zeal and passion to live for God and be a part of His story." -Eddie Huezo, NYC Ministry Site Director
