Baptist Student Ministries heads
to New York for Spring Break
The HPU BSM is taking a mission trip to New York City. The church we will be partnering with is called Jackson Heights Community Church. They are part of the Metropolitan New York Baptist Association and they are meeting needs in the Jackson Heights community. Our ministry team will come alongside the church to minister to the community through servant evangelism, English learning classes, and various other activities.
Most of the people in the area of the church have migrated from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and other South Asian countries. This will truly be a cross-cultural experience for our group. Within a few blocks of where the church meets are a mosque, Hindu temple, Sikh temple, Buddhist temple, and thousands of people who need to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. Jackson Heights Community Church already has a great reputation of service in the community. We want to help them enhance that for a week and offer ourselves as servants to engage the neighborhood for Jesus Christ.
