The Nyack College Gospel Choir was on the roster of featured performers at the final event of “Jesus Week XL,” which drew crowds to Times Square in New York City. The gathering wrapped up five weeks of events in the five boroughs of New York City that took place May 25 through June 29. “Jesus Week” was co-founded and organized by Pastor David Beidel, president of Saturate NYC and Urban Hope NYC (pictured above), along with Dimas Salaberrios, a pastor at Infinity Bible Church. Both Beidel and Salaberrios are alumni of Alliance Theological Seminary.
An article in Charisma News, “How Times Square Turned Into a Holy Temple Last Weekend,” was written by Pastor Beidel, documenting the impact of the day of ministry in worship and the Word.
