Tuesday, September 10, 2013 Nyack College NYC had its first Chapel of the Fall 2013 semester as well as the first Chapel in the new building at 2 Washington in the historic Financial District.
The Chapel began with amazing worship from the Music Department and the Nyack College NYC Chorale’s beautiful rendition of “Lift every Voice and Sing” and “My Country tis of Thee”. Dr. Dana Tally spoke of 9/11 and how God has protected our school throughout the past twelve years.
Rev. Charles Hammond, the Associate Dean of Student Life gave an encouraging Word to the students to remind them to put God first in everything and the Chorale finished with “Total Praise”. It was an inspiring beginning to the Fall 2013 Chapel season.

Nyack College/Alliance Theological Seminary (ATS) was ushered into its 2013-2014 academic year covered with prayer during a service last night at Brooklyn Tabernacle in downtown Brooklyn at the invitation of the non-denominational congregation’s leadership.
In the absence of Senior Pastor Jim Cymbala, Associate Pastor Tim Dilena, led a power-packed gathering. While the customary worship and corporate prayer for the needs of people in their congregation and from across the nation remained a central focus, the compassion and care for the work of Nyack/ATS under the leadership of President Michael Scales was evident in this prayer service.
It was an unforgettably poignant moment when Pastor Dilena singled out Rev. Charles Hammond, an associate pastor at Brooklyn Tabernacle and also the associate dean of students at Nyack's New York City campus, to recognize the work he has diligently carried out at the church and at the college. He then called President Scales, along with Manhattan and Rockland campus administrators, faculty, and staff from their seats to the altar where Brooklyn Tab church workers literally stood with each man and woman. An inspired prayer was led by 2008 ATS alumnus and a pastoral team member at the church, Alexander Burgos, for the success of the new academic year, the financial and academic needs of the students, the skills and contributions of faculty and staff, resources for the institution, and the wisdom necessary for the success of the new Battery Park campus.
