This year we have two main goals. Our first focus is on our Rockaway Beach Church plant in Queens.
As we pulled away during our furlough time, we realized our leadership in the church wasn't quite as strong as we originally
thought and it took a few steps backwards. Because of this, our focus is to grow leaders to a point that transition to a long-term
pastor would be a fruitful time for the church. Our second focus is on incubating a new work in Rego Park, Queens. We spent
last summer helping a dying work in the area and at the pastor's request handed that back over to him. This time only increased
our burden for this particular area of Queens, especially because this is the neighborhood we live in. In the 455 acres that
make up the neighborhood, over 30,000 people live there with very little biblical influence. As a matter of fact, the only
known bible believing church is the one we helped and they are struggling to influence the neighborhood by themselves, so
the need is great.
So, as we look forward to a fantastic 2019, we are currently making plans for future ministry
opportunities. Please be in prayer with us for our teammates and goals and we look forward to reporting great things that
God is doing in New York City.
