Nyack/ATS Alumni Celebrate MLK Day in Israel

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Wednesday January 17, 2018

Two media outlets in the Middle East, jewishweek.timesofisrael.com and Haaretz.com covered the story of four New York churches that travelled together as "the Brooklyn United Churches Holy Land Pilgrimage."

Nyack College and Alliance Theological Seminary graduates were among the pastors who were joined by members of their congregations. The group included Pastor Charles Galbreath (NC, '06; ATS, '09) of Clarendon Road Church (top photo); Pastor Lesly Milord (NC '97; ATS '16) and Pastor Mullery Jean-Pierre (NC '00) both of Beraca Baptist Church; Pastor Gilford Monrose (NC '04) of Mt. Zion Church of God and Pastor Clifton McDowell (NC '95; ATS '02) of Church of God of East New York (bottom photo). Alumnus Christopher Smith (NC '10), on the ministerial staff of Clarendon Road Church, served as a trip organizer.

Prior to the conclusion of their weeklong journey, on Monday, in Jerusalem, the five Nyack/ATS alumni and their combined congregations—some 200 people—gathered for prayer in Jerusalem and paid tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as the late Civil Rights leader was being celebrated back at home in the United States. Pastor Jean-Pierre was the keynote speaker at the commemorative service.

Nyack's Men's Basketball Team Serves at Martin Luther King Day Breakfast

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Tuesday January 16, 2018

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?"

This is just one of the many quotable expressions voiced by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as he led the Civil Rights Movement in our nation from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968.

For more than three decades, our nation has celebrated his legendary life. January 15, his actual birth date, was observed yesterday as a federal holiday. Post offices, schools, banks, the New York Stock Exchange and a good deal of the American work force had the “day off” on Monday.

Members of the the Nyack College men’s basketball team made it a “day on” as they served residents of the Rockland County community who attended the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. breakfast at St. Charles A.M.E. Church in Sparkill, NY.

Throughout the academic year, Head Coach Jason Crafton has his athletes involved in community initiatives such as King Day community outreach—just one more reason to look up to these young men who honor the fallen American hero.
