Nyack College Joins the Luis Palau Association CityServe Event in Manhattan
Nyack College students and staff from the Manhattan and Rockland County campuses demonstrated their hearts for serving this week at the CityServe event sponsored by the Luis Palau Association, which took place Calvary Baptist Church located at 123 West 57th Street in Manhattan.
CityServe is a movement with mission “to unite and mobilize churches, businesses, organizations, and city leaders to love and serve their city.” Believers across many denominations took advantage of this platform to gather and to pray for the City.
Charles Hammond, associate dean of student life at Nyack’s Manhattan campus, reflected on this powerful gathering that took place in midtown. He says, “While the UN General Assembly was meeting across town with representatives from all nations to discuss difficult and serious world issues, another historic moment was taking place at Calvary Baptist Church on 57th Street. Only this event involved pastors and influential leaders from around the city and outside the city who are involved in kingdom building. What a great testimony of New York's rich diversity as Dr. A.R. Bernard, founder and senior pastor at Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn commented on a ‘oneness in Christ’ which sends a strong message to our city.”
“Nyack's presence was duly recognized as our students served in various capacities as ushers and greeters to welcome the body of Christ to this momentous event. In 1857 on this very same date, September 23, an historic event took place, which ultimately led to the emergence of the Fulton Street Revival. How fitting that again on September 23, 2014 another historic day unfolded as CityServe launched its campaign to reach souls for Christ under the leadership of the Luis Palau organization. I was truly blessed to join with my fellow Nyack colleagues today in this effort.”
Heather Butcher, resident director at Christie Hall on the Nyack Rockland campus shared, “The students were excited about the event and about being a part of something so big. They liked hearing that as Christians we should not be seen as people "against this and that," but we should be seen as people of love and action. They are excited that the Church is coming together across denominational lines to be one in Christ to reach the City.”
