New York City
We have sent out one of our own church members, Chris Mills, and his wife, Sarah, to plant a church in a community of Manhattan, New York, called Hell’s Kitchen. The church officially launched in 2020, during the height of the Coronavirus Pandemic. It’s called One Community Church, and it’s focused on reaching the people in that community that has a sordid past as a hub of Irish mob activity.
Located near Times Square, OCC has been successfully engaging the community through a variety of outreach efforts and by being involved in neighborhood activities. Chris and Sarah also work closely with other churches and church plants in New York as they coordinate their efforts through the North American Mission Board (NAMB) and the Metropolitan New York Baptist Association (MNYBA).
As OCC’s sending church, we have unique opportunities to be engaged with the work Chris and Sarah are doing in New York. If you’d like to be part of that effort or learn more about it, contact Mike McClanahan, mission pastor, at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 615-447-1374.
