Nyack College Joins the Luis Palau Association CityServe Event in Manhattan

Posted by Cezanne.Perez on Monday September 29, 2014

Nyack College students and staff from the Manhattan and Rockland County campuses demonstrated their hearts for serving last week at the CityServe event sponsored by the Luis Palau Association, which took place Calvary Baptist Church located at 123 West 57th Street in Manhattan.

CityServe is a movement with mission “to unite and mobilize churches, businesses, organizations, and city leaders to love and serve their city.” Believers across many denominations took advantage of this platform to gather and to pray for the City.

Charles Hammond, associate dean of student life at Nyack’s Manhattan campus, reflected on this powerful gathering that took place in midtown. He says, “While the UN General Assembly was meeting across town with representatives from all nations to discuss difficult and serious world issues, another historic moment was taking place at Calvary Baptist Church on 57th Street. Only this event involved pastors and influential leaders from around the city and outside the city who are involved in kingdom building. What a great testimony of New York's rich diversity as Dr. A.R. Bernard, founder and senior pastor at Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn commented on a ‘oneness in Christ’ which sends a strong message to our city.”

“Nyack's presence was duly recognized as our students served in various capacities as ushers and greeters to welcome the body of Christ to this momentous event. In 1857 on this very same date, September 23, an historic event took place, which ultimately led to the emergence of the Fulton Street Revival. How fitting that again on September 23, 2014 another historic day unfolded as CityServe launched its campaign to reach souls for Christ under the leadership of the Luis Palau organization. I was truly blessed to join with my fellow Nyack colleagues today in this effort.”

Heather Butcher, resident director at Christie Hall on the Nyack Rockland campus shared, “The students were excited about the event and about being a part of something so big. They liked hearing that as Christians we should not be seen as people "against this and that," but we should be seen as people of love and action. They are excited that the Church is coming together across denominational lines to be one in Christ to reach the City.”

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

The Fall Semester at Nyack NYC was officially launched on Thursday, September 11th with our annual Convocation service. The Christian Folk Ensemble kicked the evening off with a Spirit-filled rendition of Fred Hammond’s “Jesus be a Fence.” SGA President Tryphena Ramcharitar followed up with welcoming remarks and a reading from Matthew 14. We then received a stunning word from Jeff Quinn, Vice President for College Relations. The evening culminated with a beautiful Hebrew blessing and encouragement for the challenging seasons in life.  

Opening Chapel - Fall 2014

Posted by Cezanne.Perez on Friday September 5, 2014

"God is planting something in your spirit!" 

Dr. Russell Mcleod opened yesterday's chapel service with an encouraging, and yet challenging, word for the Fall Semester. Pastor Mcleod began with the Parable of the Sower in Matthew chapter 13 and insightfully  connected it with how students will undertake their growth here at Nyack. This inspired word was coupled with beautiful, Holy Spirit filled worship led by Dean Hammond and the new Chapel Worship Team. It was a glorious start to what is sure to be a spectacular semester!

On Thursday, August 28th, Nyack NYC welcomed the newest members of the Warrior community at our annual New Student Orientation!

The fun-filled day kicked off with a presentation by Dean Charles Hammond and a very special welcome from President Scales. Introductions were made to the Office of Student Development and the new students met with current club officers and student leaders. These introductions quickly blossomed into God-centered friendships as stories were shared. The group took lunch at Battery Park and the afternoon culminated with games, skits, and lots of laughs.
