Welcome to the official home of NY13
Here you will find information and resources about NY13. NY13 is short for New York 2013. It's rooted in our mission as a church to win others for Christ. With more people living in urban communities than in suburban areas, the General Conference chose New York City as its launching pad for large-city evangelism in 2013.
Why Metro New York?
New York City has been chosen as the first of about 650 cities where the Seventh-day Adventist Church plans to hold evangelistic meetings over the next several years. It is an urban center whose population reflects a microcosm of the world. Church leaders are also following the counsel of Ellen White in the Spirit of Prophecy that the work done in New York City should be a “symbol of the work the Lord desires to see done in the world.” Representatives from all of the 13 divisions of the world church will be involved in this effort and the knowledge gained from their participation will allow them to be able do a similar work in their fields.
