Our mission

Our mission is to reach New York City undergraduate students with the Gospel and equip them to serve Christ, his church, and his kingdom. We aim to do this in a way that is both plausible to the skeptic and life-changing to the Christian. We have one weekly large-group gathering as well as small groups that meet at various times and places throughout the city during the week.

We are affiliated with and supported by local churches in New York City like  Redeemer and Emmanuel, and we are the local chapter of Reformed University Fellowship.
