Introduction to NYC-MTSNYC Missionary Training School (NYC-MTS) is an August-May training program led by a multi-agency team of believers who are committed to starting churches among the unreached people groups of the world. Over the past few years we have seen many come to Christ and have seen churches started in least evangelized countries as a result of our ministries. Thousands of internationals from least evangelized countries come to New York City every year. These internationals represent the influential thinkers and policy makers of their nations. Being away from home, many are more receptive to the Gospel message. Our focus is on making disciples among these people and training them to start reproducible churches here and when they return to their home country. Ultimately, our desire is to see movements of national led churches established throughout the darkest corners of the world. NYC-MTS is cross cultural church planting training. This program enables individuals to learn about the DNA of reproducible church planting, cross-cultural ministry, and the Gospel while working alongside experienced church planters. They will have opportunity to start discovery Bible studies and house churches among internationals or unreached people groups within New York City.
