For over 200 years New York has been the leading city in America — shaping the trends, values, imaginations, and hopes of the country and the world. Many of the key institutions that shape our country are found here, in education, financial services, marketing, technology, media and entertainment, the arts, and numerous others.  Where is the Christian witness in these spaces?  Without it,  New York finds itself leading the way in the moral decline of a nation that looks to wealth, pride, and freedom from all constraints for meaning.

 

God has called us to actively create and build, and to be salt and light  (Matt. 5:13-14).  Our culture is crumbling under the weight of sin in all its forms, both of commission and omission.  The church is called to engage every sphere of society to promote godliness and the flourishing found in our right relationship with God.  And we have God’s promises that He will respond as we seek Him (Ezekiel 18; 2 Chronicles 7; James 4).

 

We spend the vast majority of our waking hours in pursuit of our vocation.  While not the only venue for our transformative efforts, our vocation naturally lends itself to this purpose.  We need to do more than survive as Christians in these professions; we need to redemptively promote the purposes of Jesus Christ.  We need to create and build products, services, systems, networks, traditions, normative behavior, and values in these industries that reflect God’s intent.  And we need to structure our own lives to live faithfully and obediently as His children and ambassadors.

 

God has called us to be filled with the Spirit and to widely proclaim His Gospel.  We have seen this lived out at various times in our history through the Great Awakening of the 1730’s and 40’s, the Second Great Awakening from 1801-1830’s, the Businessman’s Revival of 1857-58, the Pentecostal Awakening of 1906, and the Jesus Movement of the 1970’s. America has perhaps the best revival history in the world, such that Christians from other nations have learned America’s Christian history that they might emulate it. These great moves of God are always preceded by large numbers of Christians repenting of sins, praying, fasting and seeking God’s face for His will (2 Chronicles 7:13, 14).

 

"Christian Union is making a serious attempt to spark this kind of prayer and devotion.
I welcome it, and am very encouraged by it."
- Tim Keller, Chairman and Co-Founder, Redeemer City to City


Christian Union New York is equipping, inspiring, and mobilizing Christians to engage the city every day.  This is accomplished by the grace of God through the following initiatives.

Direct Ministry to NYC Industry Leaders:   

Christian Union develops and mobilizes leaders in the city through one-on-one mentorship, intercessory and healing prayer, fasting and prayer retreats, transformational Christian Leadership coaching, and valuable networking to maximize their impact for Christ on their industry, on New York City and consequently on the nation.  By God’s grace, we are strengthening city and national leaders in every sphere; media, law and government, arts and entertainment, finance and business, education, faith, and family.

Year-Round Regular Events:

  • Salons and Forums: These small, intimate events highlight a speaker on an aspect of faith related to theology or vocation relevant to how we engage in personal growth and redemptive faith.  These include discussion and Q&A.
  • Conferences:  The CU Cities conference is our yearly conference for professionals from across industries to explore compelling ideas about faith and its relevance to every facet of our lives. CU Fire conferences are filled with intensive prayer, fasting and teaching experiences for spiritual rejuvenation.  Gospel of the Kingdom conferences educate New Yorkers on the supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit including prophecy, healing, inner-healing and deliverance.  


“I’ve been enriched beyond words.  I am now looking to God to do the extraordinary in the lives of those around me through earnest prayer. The weekend raised my spiritual temperature and sharpened my senses.  I am ready for battle.”
- Recent CU Conference Participant


Special Welcome for Young Professionals 

CU welcomes and integrates young professionals when they move to New York so they do not become consumed by the city, but instead form patterns that lead to their individual flourishing and equip them for cultural impact.  They are especially vulnerable to the temptations and trappings of the city, so special social opportunities and events are planned year-round.
