Oh, Thank Heaven for 7-11!!
We’re praising God for many answered prayers as we continue to prepare and get equipped for NY CityServe & CityFest! There are many, many events already taking place and still being planned to serve the people and proclaim God’s truth. The event that will surely capture the attention of the city will be the Festival with Luis on July 11th in Central Park!!
Praise God with us for these opportunities!

Praise God for the wonderful time at the Pastors’ Prayer Summit in January! 350 pastors gathered together in unity and excitement for all God is doing and going to do in their region! Pastors are incredibly supportive and excited.
Praise God for a great Connecticut Launch as nearly 100 pastors representing more than 20 cities, braved the extremely icy conditions and gathered to hear Luis and Kevin Palau cast the vision for CT. The enthusiasm was amazing! Pray that these pastors will have great favor as they go back to their various communities and ask other pastors to join them.
A decision has been made and an advertising company hired!! This is wonderful news as the team can move forward with blitzing the city with the Good News!

“Feed the Need” - A large service project in Clinton NJ with over 8,000 volunteers (many who don’t know Jesus personally and would experience Him deeply as their Savior) from over 40 churches, preparing over 2 Million meals to distribute, February 16-21. Pray for good, dry weather, continued finances to complete the project, and that not only physical but spiritual hunger would be nourished!
Riker’s Island Outreaches- Pray for God to work through these upcoming prison outreaches.
“For This City”- A large scale youth event coming up March 13-15, featuring Andrew Palau. Pray for those organizing the event and for youth pastors who are coming together to encourage and motivate youth for Jesus.
Central Park Program, July 11- Ask God for wisdom as the team prayerfully determine and go after the right artists and testimonies for this central event. Plead with God that every person who attends will indeed see Him in a new way as a result of those gathered to proclaim the Good News.
Meetings with the Parks Commissioner and other Parks contacts- Pray as the team reviews the next steps in preparing for Central Park while asking God to open doors (quickly) to secure parks and other venues for regional festivals and outreaches in the other areas. Ask God to provide favor and availability for locations in every borough.
Lift up our Regional Church Directors, those working to unite local pastors/churches and equip them for local service and outreach: Kevin Palau (Manhattan), Tim Innes (Queens), Levi Park (The Bronx and New Jersey), Randy Burtis (Connecticut and Brooklyn) and Tom Mueller (Long Island, Staten Island, and Westchester County). Pray for continued favor with every leader they meet in the city.
Let us get equipped by praying.
