Join us for a week in New York City sharing the Gospel and ministering alongside of Pastor Boto in Jackson Heights!

These week is very strategic to the work of Jackson Heights Community Church as we intentionally send out short-term mission teams to sift among Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and other seekers who are being drawn to Christ in Jackson Heights. Why Sifting? We trust Jesus’ promise that when the Holy Spirit comes “He will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment” (John 16:8). Our team will partner and join with our local church to sift through the largely immigrant neighborhood identifying those persons who are under conviction from the Holy Spirit through dreams, restless hearts, or simply openness to a Gospel witness. Our week will be filled with prayer, worship, training, witnessing, serving, temple visits and of course enjoying ethnic food and fellowship. We will be very intentional in learning about Eastern religions and having a deeper understanding of Eastern worldviews and culture in the context of our diverse neighborhood. We will greatly multiply their efforts to engage and look for “persons of peace” who are hungry to hear the good news of God’s Salvation.

Service Interest

God has gifted you uniquely in many ways. Often people try and list things they think might help on a mission trip even if it isn't something they are gifted with. Many times this leaves out the unique gifts God has given you. He might use your true gifts and passions in ways you couldn't imagine. So... go ahead and tell us how God has designed you!
