InterVarsity's NYCUP exists to develop leaders with the character and capacity to change the world. Then, we commission them to do so. We do that through introducing them to God who created the world, Jesus who redeemed it, and Holy Spirit who fills us with love, joy, patience, peace, kindness, gentleness, and self-control to join Him in the renewal of all things. And in the coming year, we hope to take the to the next level!
More than 300 students, staff and community members fed the homeless, collaborated to fight racism and educational inequity, prayed and listened to the stories of our immigrant brothers and sisters. RecWeek is short for Reconciliation Week because God is making things right and calling us to do the same around the corner and around the world.
NYCUP Summer is almost here and our 3 programs will be in full force. NYCUP Students will be ministering alongside the staff at the Bowery Mission's Mont Lawn Camp to at-risk youth for 10 weeks. Six women of God will live in community and dive deep into hearing from God and loving our marginalized neighbors with NYC Relief, Nomi Network and Restore NYC. And, we will welcome hundreds to Calvary Baptist Church for our Let's Talk Avodah, vocational leadership program where over 6 weeks we welcome speakers and leaders to share about following Jesus in the workplace. How to Sabbath, fight anxiety, set boundaries, and build healthy relationships are just a few of the topics!
These programs, we hope will catapult us into a new season in September where we launch weekly programming where university students and communities around them can hear from God and respond together! Leaders from around the city will meet with those seeking to grow in faith and respond in action to plant and grow witnessing communities committed to loving God and loving people of every race, background and culture. And it's my hope that you will help us!
