MNYBA: A Church Planting Center for Jackson Heights, Queens

The Metro-New York Baptist Association has a vision for reaching the nations from the most diverse place on the planet: Jackson Heights, Queens, NYC.

Partnerships are forming now to create a church planting center in Jackson Heights: a physical space, that would house multiple congregations, and allow for citizenship and ESL classes, mission team housing, and more.

It is a huge vision that must involve other churches, state conventions and associations. You can be a part of it. Please watch this video and connect with George Russ in NYC to secure your spot on the upcoming vision tour.

NACP Partnerships: Supporting Church Planting & Reaching the Lost in the Northeast and Toronto

NACP Partnerships: Supporting Church Planting & Reaching the Lost in the Northeast and Toronto

Planting new churches is the most effective way to reach the lost – and there are more than 60 million people in the Northeast and Toronto who are living and dying right now without Christ

Boe and Connie Ellis through a ministry called North American Church Planting Partnerships are supporting Southern Baptist church planters and church planting leaders by providing a catalytic, church planting need – that because of the lack of churches in these areas, there just isn’t local funding for.

We invite you to expand the mission of your church, your organization and your family by partnering with us. You can adopt a planter, a church plant, a city or the whole region.

Your prayers, your teams, and your financial giving through the Metro-New York Baptist Association and the Baptist Convention of New England will not just support our ministry but it will underwrite the work that we are giving away to planters who are not equipped to tell their stories and create new partnerships.

Thank you for helping us help them reach their neighborhoods and the nations.

MNYBA partners with Boe Ellis to create new NYC Church Planting Site

[clear /]

NEW YORK – CERICDigital and Boe Ellis are pleased to roll out today in partnership with George Russ of the the Metro New York Baptist Association and Steve Allen of the North American Mission Board the new

Geared especially as a resource for connecting future planters to the world’s most strategic metro-area, Ellis says the site will bring together the best of two worlds. First, Steve Allen’s influence and input as NAMB’s Lead Church Planting Catalyst for the Tri-State Church Planting team will give the site an insider’s look into the world of becoming a planter in the Metro-NYC area. And second, George Russ’s perspective as a local association leader will bring to the site a local flavor and a day-to-day, on-the-ground presence.

Though the site is still undergoing a major development / re-development, the team felt like there was enough of the story there now to go ahead and flip the switch and make the site live.

“I love it,” Allen said. “I love the new look and especially the way we have created a simple navigation for both planters and partners to find their way around. I look forward to this site representing us well and growing in the coming years.”
