With 8.5 million inhabitants who speak nearly 500 languages, New York City is one of the most diverse and influential cities in the word.

Metropolitan New York is larger than Dallas, San Francisco, Atlanta, Seattle, Boston, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Miami and Las Vegas combined. One out of every 16 people in the United States lives within a 75-mile radius of Times Square. All the nations of the world live in the neighborhoods of New York.

Metropolitan New York Baptist Association (MNYBA) is about connecting local churches for global impact. MNYBA helps churches plant new churches, serve in their communities and advance the Kingdom of God throughout the world.

The churches of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina are partnering with MNYBA to help advance the Gospel in an area where only 3 percent of the population has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Connect Your Church

Church Planting – Existing churches are a vital resource in the strategic church planting efforts in New York City. The Office of Great Commission Partnerships can help your church or association work with the MNYBA church planting team to help plant an effective New Testament church in New York City.

Kingdom Prayer – Kingdom-focused prayer is the heartbeat of Great Commission Partnerships. We ask that your church consider adopting a church in prayer. Contact the Office of Great Commission Partnerships to get your church engaged in the prayer ministry of partnerships.

Assisting Churches – MNYBA can help connect your church with an existing church in New York to assist the church with a mission project.  Project opportunities are wide ranging.  Contact the Office of Great Commission Partnerships to get connected today.

Vision tours are an opportunity for pastors and mission leaders to see what God is doing and to learn how churches or a network of churches can get involved. Join us for the New York Vision Trip on  April 18-19, 2013. Click here to register or email Emily Compton at for more information.

*North Carolina Baptist pastors and associational missionaries receive a $100 scholarship for their first vision trip to each partnership area.
