Renaissance Church Partners

In his letter to the Galatian church, the apostle Paul wrote about his commitment to remembering those in need (Galatians 2:10). And as a church, we want to be committed to the same thing. We want to help meet the needs of others in our neighborhood, city, and world.

Our Renaissance Church Partners are organizations doing incredible work, both in- and outside of Harlem.

By coming alongside these organizations, our Church Partners help us make every effort to remember those in need. We invite you to be a part of a movement for mercy and justice. Read below to learn about opportunities to serve or get connected to organizations we partner with.
