About the Church/Area

Why Queens?

Because the Lord led us here, and then we found out that it is "the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world.” With over 2.2 million people and 47.7% foreign born, Queens, the largest borough in NYC is a world within the world. Furthermore, Jackson Heights, the neighborhood that we've adopted has the largest subway stop in Queens making this community "a melting pot of the nations.” Last summer alone we had the joy of working with over 200 witnesses from across the country as we proclaimed Christ with our mouths and served our community with our hands.
