Recently, four SCBaptist pastors visited with the Metropolitan New York Baptist Association (MNYBA) to learn about and serve poverty-impacted communities in the heart of NYC.

“It’s been years since we’ve planted churches here in Manhattan because it’s incredibly challenging. But over the last year and a half, we’ve seen several churches planted right here on this island,” Kevin Cabe, partnership coordinator at MNYBA, said.

The SC pastors and leaders engaged in roundtable discussions with MNYBA leaders to facilitate an exchange of ideas and experiences among pastors serving in poverty-impacted communities.

“These pastors, part of a cohort with the Serve Team, are doing great work in poverty-impacted communities in South Carolina and it was helpful for them to connect with likeminded pastors in NYC,” Jon Jamison, SCBaptist Serve Team Leader, said.

Developing Partnerships

The pastors also toured three different ministry sites in New York City, including Graffiti Church and Graffiti Community Ministries, providing firsthand insights into the challenges and opportunities these pastors face daily. “We look forward to seeing this partnership develop, strengthen, and deepen as we work together,” George Russ, Executive Director of MNYBA, said.

This cross-state collaboration serves as a testament to the broader Baptist community’s commitment to see lives impacted by the Gospel. “We continue to pray that we will see transformed lives and communities here in South Carolina as well as in New York,” Jamison said.

If you would like to deepen your community ministry impact around your church or would like to partner in challenging communities in New York, please reach out to Jon Jamison.
