Movement Day to Transform Cities through the Gospel
New York City, NY—Mac Pier, president and visionary leader of The NYCLC and author of Consequential Leadership (InterVarsity Press 2012), said, “A ‘gospel movement’ is considered to be happening when the Christian population is growing faster than the general population in a city and/or region. We believe Movement Day can help make that happen by convening powerful ministry and community leaders to share innovative ideas and best practices and to advance collaborative partnerships across business sectors within multiple cities. The Apostle Paul set the pattern for us, because he most often went to the largest cities of his day to preach and teach. By following his example and delivering the same message of Christ as Paul did, we can transform the spiritual and social culture of U.S. cities and beyond.”
A gospel movement also encompasses the following elements, according to Pier:
- The integration of local churches reaching new individuals with the gospel
- Ministry and community leaders transforming the lives of youth, the poor and the marginalized
- Cultural leaders exercising their faith and influence in every sector of society
- Citywide networks emerging to mobilize, develop and connect these leaders
The NYCLC is excited to see major city leaders already working with “city teams” to accomplish the goals and visions of Movement Day. The NYCLC’s plan is for each city team to use the knowledge gained from convening with other global leaders and adapt it to their own cities’ contexts to reach the youth, poor and marginalized in their areas with the life-altering gospel of Christ.

Movement Day is a leadership development initiative of The New York City Leadership Center founded by Dr. Mac Pier. Their vision is to become a model of Christian leaders impacting the spiritual and social climate of an urban center. Their mission is to exponentially increase the leadership effectiveness of ministry and marketplace leaders. Visit their website at www.NYCLeadership.com.
