Intercultural Ministries
Reaching the ethnic populations of NYC

After serving as World Missionaries for 20 years, mostly in Africa, God has changed our course and sent us to one of the most unreached, yet most reachable cities in our world: New York City!

8:00 pm - 5:00 am
102-07 Rockaway Blvd. Ozone Park, Queens

This is a call to pray for the world of nations including diaspora communities in NYC and their representative countries of origin. 

This unique mission event will provide a special prayer focus "around the clock" and "around the world", beginning with dynamic multi-ethnic worship and a special keynote message from Greg Mundis (Executive Director AG World Missions).

Who's My Neighbor Seminar

Praise the Lord!
We had a wonderful time at Who's My Neighbor - NYC Intercultural Ministries Seminar in October. The goal of this seminar was to motivate greater responsibility toward the underserved intercultural ministry needs of NYC and beyond. Who's my Neighbor? focused on ministry to Muslim peoples and showcased our partnership with AGWM's Global Initiative: Reaching Muslim Peoples. Read the full report here

Northeast Japanese Conference

The Japanese AG, NY Intercultural Ministries, and Westchester Christian Worship Center joined together to host the event. Of the 35 people attending, two Japanese people were dynamically saved. Haniff Bacchus, John Cummings, and Scott Temple were among the many ethnic ministers present to show support for the vision of reaching the Japanese people (now over 50,000 in Metro NY).
Percentage-wise, Japanese people come to Christ outside of Japan far more than they do in their homeland.

Ministerial Credentials

Julie and I celebrated with Pastor and Mrs. Kwami Hlomawou, who pastor a French speaking West African congregation, as Dave Nuzzolo presented them with ministerial credentials. God is doing GREAT things in NYC!

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:26-28 NIV).
