OUR STORY

In March of 2015, as a Student Pastor, Jordan Floro led his first mission trip to Queens in New York City. It was on this trip where he saw first-hand the overwhelming opportunity that presented itself because of the city’s density of people and diversity of culture. He fell in love with the city and was inspired by the ministry that was being done to reach people from all over the world for the Gospel. While on this trip, he was presented a phrase that would be a constant refrain anytime he’d think about Queens.
 

If you reach the neighborhood, you’ll be reaching the world
 

Since 2015, Jordan and his wife, Melissa, have led numerous trips and visited the city multiple times. On these trips, they have been able to build relationships, serve the people, and share the Gospel. With every visit came a deeper affection and love for the people of Queens. 
 

In the Summer of 2019, soon after yet another mission trip to Queens, Jordan and Melissa began to sense God’s calling toward a new work He had been preparing for them. Over the next few months of praying, seeking the Lord,, and listening to wise counsel, they believe that God is calling them to plant a church in Queens New York City.
 

We would love for you to pray and consider joining us in the work God is doing!

 

WHY QUEENS, NEW YORK CITY?

DENSITY AND DIVERSITY

Queens has a population density of over 21,000 people per square mile. This means that a church that has a significant presence on multiple city blocks has the opportunity to impact tens of thousands individuals who all need to hear the Good News of the Gospel!
 

Of the almost 2.5 million residents who call Queens home, nearly half of them moved to Queens from other countries. There are also a large number of second and third generations Americans who still have significant relationships in countries outside the United States.
 

If you reach the neighborhood, you’ll be reaching the world
