Our church plant is gaining traction for the Gospel in the neighborhoods we serve in Atlantic City. This summer is a vital time to keep the momentum God has blessed us with. Come join us for a week of intensive cross-cultural ministry training and to learn how to better serve the poor in a way that is both helpful to them and glorifying to Christ.
Equip your team with a vision for racial reconciliation, cross-cultural urban ministry, mercy and development ministry among the poor, and joy in worship in Atlantic City, NJ.
Join with New City Fellowship of AC, Hope for Atlantic City (HFAC), and Mission to North America to assist in the evangelism and development of urban neighborhoods in Atlantic City. Our focus rests on the Chelsea Heights neighborhood of AC as well as North Maryland Ave. (known as “back Maryland”) section of the city. NCF and HFAC seek to be a bridge to all of the residents and provide mercy and development opportunities for the future of the neighborhood.
In reliance upon the grace of God we desire to establish a cross cultural worshipping community, centered in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which will produce equipped, maturing disciples who become God’s instruments of grace, justice, and mercy and to help plant like minded churches throughout the Atlantic City region and beyond.
