Help church planters in New York City show God’s love to local teachers and administrators.

Church planters in New York City are seeking to show God’s love in tangible ways to reach their neighbors through the “We Inspire NYC” teacher tote project. This initiative is designed to help church planters, who are engaged in four neighborhood schools, bless the teachers and administrators.

“People won’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”
– Pastor Danny Torres of Swerve Church in Queens, New York 

We Inspire NYC

What can you do to help?

1. Pray for these planters to have favor in the schools as they build relationships and share the gospel. Pray that God will further use the teacher totes as strengthening those relationships and opening more doors for gospel conversations.

2. Connect with a planter in NYC for gospel partnership in the Big Apple. We are happy to help you make these connections in NYC, as your church prayerfully considers partnering here. Reach us at partnership@kybaptist.org.

"We're trying to be good news in our community. We don't want to just be a church that is just in the neighborhood. We want to take advantage of this huge open door to minister in local schools."

"It took us 5 years to sort of build relationships with the school. You have to earn the relationship by investing in the neighborhood. We try to position ourselves in the middle of the neighborhood and meet needs. Our goal is to show the love of Christ."

"We want to make sure (the teachers we work with) feel valued as individuals. We're not trying to simply proselytize, we really care about them. I've already had other principals reaching out to me to see how they can get a church to adopt them."

"We are excited about partnering with your church to help supply teachers and at their schools with the things they need. This will be a great way for our church here in Woodside Queens to partner with the local schools we have already developed a relationship with."
