Danny & Summer
Hey friends and family! We are so glad you are here to follow along with us in our journey. After 7 years of Gospel ministry in South Texas, we have felt the Lord's calling to a new work in our ministry! On March 13, 2014 the Lord led Danny to meet Larry Mayberry, a church planter that had just moved to Queens, NYC. After their first conversation, Danny knew he wanted to partner with him in some way. In the Summer of 2016, we finally got to lead a mission team of adults and high school students to partner with a local church in Astoria, Queens. After that trip, we couldn't wait to plan our next visit for the two of us to experience the city. This led to multiple mission trips and a couple of personal trips to NYC where we continued to partner with a local church and serve Queens. While it was never our plan or our intention, in March 2018 we began to feel the Lord's calling on us and began to have real conversations about leaving Texas to move to Queens, NYC. We were asked by our NYC partners to move to NYC to join them in planting a new church in Queens, NYC.
The thought of leaving our comfortable Texas home, our friends and family, full-time jobs, our amazing student ministry and our lively church to move across the country to a city we had simply visited scared us. Although what we felt God place on our hearts was simply to stop visiting and start investing. Each time we visited NYC we built relationships, we shared the Gospel, and constantly pointed people to the church. We realized that it was time to start investing in the people. Our desire is that you know that this move is far from the glamour of the city and all about the hearts of the people who are without Jesus. This is not a comfortable move for us, but God calls us to the uncomfortable. God calls us to move and even though we don't know all the details we are excited to see a new Gospel work happen in Queens, NYC and we are excited to step out in faith.
Our desire is that you would consider to join us in this Gospel work prayerfully and financially. To partner with us, please continue reading this page! We would love to hear from you, so if you have any questions or comments, please leave us a message in the Contact Section below! Thank you for reading our story!
WHY QUEENS NYC
For the Sake of the Gospel
Matthew 28:19 says, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..." The Great Commission calls us to make disciples of all nations and the uniqueness of Queens, NYC is that so many nations have come to one borough (an area of NYC). The goal of Church Planting in Queens is to reach the nations by reaching the neighborhood. The neighborhoods of Astoria, Woodside and others in Queens are extremely diverse and have an extreme lack of Gospel-Centered churches. Simply put, Queens, NYC needs more people reaching the neighborhoods with the Gospel. The harvest is plentiful and the laborers are few. Our desire is to join the laborers and see a Gospel work that can flourish in Queens, NYC that will happen through a new local church.
