Is God you calling you to NYC?
Being confident of God’s calling to Church Planting is only the first step in the process of becoming a Planter. Those God is calling must also determine where His Spirit is leading them to plant a church. God calls different people to plant differing churches in a variety of areas. In His wisdom, God matches the personalities, socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, and psychographics of the planters with a given church planting field. In some instances He calls a planter that has significant skills in cross-cultural ministry to plant in a pioneer area like Metro NYC/NJ.
With the assistance of the NYC Church Planting Team you can locate communities that best match the gifting and background with which God has prepared you to plant.
