Nehemiah used two city rebuilding strategies:
1. He encouraged families to rebuild the city where they lived.
2. He told all the families to come together when he blew the trumpet.
We are encouraging both during Jesus week:
1. That THE CHURCH would PRAY AND WORK TOGETHER as the family of God in every zip code in our city.
2. That THE CHURCH would GATHER TOGETHER as ONE BODY to make His praise glorious in our city.
Sat. May 27 – Sat. June 3
Times Square Starting Time 5:00 PM

Participate in PRAY NY: Mobilize your church to pray in your zip code on May 27th to kick off Jesus Week (any or every day of the week is fine as well – just save energy for Times Square).
For over ten years, PRAY NY Churches have “prayer walked” and ministered in every zip code in NYC. Jesus commanded us to go into the highways, the streets and the lanes to compel the lost to come in (Lk. 13:21,23).
The Lord promised Joshua, “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you” (Josh. 1:3).
We have seen God do marvelous work as we obey His command to “possess the land.”
We believe in uniting churches, as well as equipping them with resources & training to help prepare them to transform their community through a Hope Day event.
We work with churches to host events within their community, which offer families & individuals free resources such as food, shoes, haircuts, & more.
Ultimately at the end of the day, our hope & prayer is that every guest who attends a Hope Day event will experience the love of Christ through our staff & volunteers.
Our mission is to celebrate and accelerate collaborations that love and serve the City of New York. We are a large network of hundreds of churches across all Five Boroughs and together have invested tens of thousands of dollars and volunteer hours in loving and serving New York and her amazing people. Through the incredible and generous work of the Luis Palau Association, NY CityServe got its start in the summer of 2014 and officially launched a year later.

This ministry will give everyone who registers a list of 100 of their nearest neighbors. Every day they can receive an email list with the names and addresses of 5 families to pray for. Every 20 days, they can pray for 100 families around them. Assuming, 4 persons per household, 25,000 saints can saturate a city of 10 million in prayer. Learn More Here
Welcome to the website for The HOPE video and Study Guide. We're glad you are here. The HOPE is an epic 80-minute dramatic motion picture overview of the story of God's promise for all people as revealed in the Bible.

Prayer Stations: Set up a table with a banner that says: “Prayer Station” in a strategic area. Offer prayer, Bibles and literature. You can order these tables from YWAM or make your own. Learn More Here
Movie Outreach Events: Last year many churches engaged in the “Risen Movie Event.” Congregants invited friends and neighbors view a free movie. Popcorn and/or hot dogs were served and the Gospel was preached. This is a very low cost/high impact outreach. There are many wonderful Christian Movies available now.
Books and Flowers Day: Distribute Christian Children’s books and plant flowers in neighborhoods that you believe would appreciate this outreach.
Children’s Book Drive: Many children in NYC neighborhoods do not have a single book that they call their own. Many families in our churches have hundreds of books gathering dust in their attic. Consider reaching out to a Title 1 school in your area and offer to provide children’s books for the children to take home for summer reading. The principal may allow you to facilitate a “Free Book Fair.”
Paint Classrooms In A Local School: We have partners that can help to facilitate and/or supply paint for this outreach.
Free Family Portraits: Invite your neighbors to come to church and offer to take a free family portrait. Serve coffee and snacks while people wait for the picture. Have your church members socialize with them. Let them know that they can pick up their portraits in church the following Sunday.
