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.

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.
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
