Every Nation NYC’s Story
Our congregation was started immediately after the 9-11 terrorist attacks, when Senior Pastor Ron Lewis, Pastor Rice Broocks, and a team journeyed to New York City. Pastor Ron was deeply moved when he saw the pillar of smoke filling the sky above lower Manhattan. At that moment, he felt God clearly speak to him, “Out of these ashes I will build a great church.” Pastor Ron interpreted this to mean the Lord would bless many churches in NYC, as well as call Every Nation to start a new congregation in the heart of Manhattan. Within a few weeks, we held our first worship service in the historic Lamb’s Theatre in Times Square.
Over the next 5 years, Every Nation NYC saw thousands of New Yorkers from all walks of life respond to the Gospel. We have born much fruit, helping to plant a church in Philadelphia, and sending teams and resources to serve churches in Russia, Taiwan, and the Dominican Republic.
Today, Every Nation NYC is a diverse, multi-ethnic congregation experiencing God together. We are committed to seeing God transform this city one life at a time through helping people Know God, Grow Together, Discover Purpose, and Make a Difference.
