NY13 Participating Conferences
A Welcome Note from the Chairman...
Donald G. King
NY13 Steering Committee

In this first issue of NY13 Update, we're thrilled to welcome you and invite you to join us in one of the most exciting opportunities of the decade--that is, reaching people in Metro New York City in 2013 and beyond with the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

In this update, please note the NY13 Fast Facts and ways in which you may become involved. Take a moment to watch the Hope Channel and 3ABN Special. Also, please start planning to invite your friends to attend or watch the Satellite Evangelism and Prayer Rally, September 21 and 22 this year in preparation for the NY13 kick-off in 2013.

Most of all, we invite you to pray for this massive initiative as we forward the mission of preparing the world for the triumphal return of Jesus Christ.

In an effort to raise awareness about NY13 among our members, we have prepared a NY13 Fast Facts index card for distribution at our participating camp meetings and churches. It is by no means exhaustive, but provides quick basic facts about NY13 and how you, your church, and our members can become engaged in the process.

What is NY13?

NY13 is an evangelistic outreach project sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to reach people in the metropolitan area of New York City in 2013 and beyond with the gospel of Jesus Christ. In addition to New York City, it includes the areas of Northeast New Jersey and Southern Connecticut.


Why New York?

New York City is the first of 650 cities chosen for evangelistic meetings. Ellen White says in the Spirit of Prophecy that the work done in New York City should be a "symbol of the work the Lord desires to see done in the world." Representatives from all of the 13 divisions of the world church will be involved in this effort.


How can I get involved?

* Become one of more than 5,000 prayer intercessors.

* Give Bible studies.

* Distribute literature.

* Purchase and distribute "The Great Hope" book from you local ABC.

* Become trained as a community health missionary.

Satellite Evangelism and Prayer Rally
Satellite Evangelism and Prayer Rally for NY13
Mark your calendars. September 21 and 22, 2012 will be our Satellite/Internet Evangelism and Prayer Rally to launch NY13. This will take place at the North Bronx Seventh-day Adventist Church and will be uplinked via satellite and streamed via the Internet. You can watch live on Hope Channel, Hope Church Channel, and Esperanza TV. 3ABN will carry a delayed broadcast because of their fall camp meeting program. Join us on the internet at (Atlantic Union Adventist Media) or via

Goal-100,000 in Attendance. Since not everyone will be able to attend the Evangelism and Prayer Rally at the North Bronx church location, it is our goal to have each local church in the Metro New York City area participate in the weekend rally by connecting either by live satellite downlink or Internet streaming. With every church member inviting two or three friends as guests to their local church to watch the program live, we can potentially have an audience of 100,000 or more just from the Metro New York area. Our guest speakers will include: Carlton Byrd, Breath of Life Speaker; Mark Finley, General Conference; Ted Wilson, General Conference; Abraham Jules, Pathway of Hope speaker; and a special broadcast in Spanish with Robert Costa, General Conference.
