Impact of NYC


Often referred to as “the Big Apple” or “the City that Never Sleeps,” New York City is home to almost 8.4 million people, and world renowned cultural, financial, and diplomatic institutions such as Broadway, the New York Stock Exchange, and the United Nations. An urban center that has captured hearts and imagination throughout history, New York City serves as a leading center of change and innovation both at home and around the globe.
300% GROWTH

In 2000, Dr. Mac Pier, founder & CEO of The New York City Leadership Center, and Dr. Timothy Keller, founder of Redeemer City to City, formed the Church Multiplication Alliance. Since 2002, this joint effort has helped to launch more than 100 churches resulting in a growth of the Christian population in Manhattan by 300%

14,000 LEADERS

In 2010, over 800 city leaders convened at Calvary Baptist Church in Manhattan for the inaugural Movement Day, a gathering of leaders changing cities through gospel movements. Nearly 14,000 have attended since. 2016 marked a historic gathering of 3,000 influential leaders from around the world

60,000 CHRISTIANS

Birthed from Movement Day 2012, the Luis Palau Association launched NY CityServe, a Gospel-driven movement that identifies, develops and nurtures church-connected, neighborhood-focused service collaborations throughout the boroughs of NYC. In June 2015, NY CityFest hosted nearly 60,000 Christians at the historic Central Park for worship and proclamation. Nearly 10,000 made decisions for Christ during the inaugural campaign.

4,000 PASTORS

United prayer between pastors and leaders has been the foundation since 1988. Concerts of Prayer Greater New York, founded by Dr. Mac Pier, emerged as a significant collaborative prayer network connecting 4,000 evangelical pastors and churches throughout NY, NJ, and CT across racial and denominational lines. This movement continues as one of the most developed urban prayer and pastoral networks in the world

Prayer Points


01

Pray that NYC becomes a positive influence on the world, that an undeniable movement of God would arise, and that the city would no longer be known only for its entertainment or talents but for its love for Christ Jesus.

02

Pray for the ‘new thing’ God is yet doing, and that which is to come. Pray that leaders yield to the preparation needed to steward the move of God.

03

Pray for the thousands that are bound in cycles of poverty and homelessness and that the hope of Christ would pervade their situation, calling forth financial resources, education, housing and the necessary support services.

04

Pray for unity! With such unparalleled diversity, there is a need for God’s anointing to speak a common language and to bear God’s heart for the city.
