It’s a glorious Sunday summer afternoon. You’ve just had a really successful event. Your people showed up and had a great time. Your core cooked up the most scrumptious of dishes. The decor was dazzling and there were some really exciting spontaneous activities that the words in your conversation couldn’t describe.
The event is over and there’s nothing left. Sometimes short social media statuses, selfies & slightly blurred phone pics are all that’s left. Nothing to really convince the rest of the group that they’ve missed it! Nothing that says that your last event was amazing and the next one is worth coming to.
Hope Leaders! I introduce to you MINISTRY BLOGGING! One of the Hope Groups happening this upcoming Fall semester at HopeNYC! This blogging group will be focused on blogging for your ministry! You may be saying ” I got too much on my plate” “I’m A BIT busy planning the next event!” Don’t fret! Find a person in your group that is right for the job! It’s not just anybody 🙂 Someone with an interest, very observant that can remember the special moments and key details of the event. Not to mention someone alittle tech savvy and ready to start posting and SOON! 😀 The group will also cover some brief photography skills. Yes! Even a phone picture needs to have some thought put into it 📱 Are you less of a writer and more of vlogger? (Video Blogging) We will cover that too! This group is a helpful way to promote growth in your ministry WITH PRAYER OF COURSE! Also this could be a special way to capture your event and have a well-written article with photos left for you and your group to remember! Be on the look out for the Ministry Blogging Hope Group this upcoming Fall Semester!
There may be people (of any age) out there that needs the fellowship, love and encouragement of your ministry. Also a home ⛪️

A Small Taste in pics of Compass After-Hours
“There are good fathers at Hope! ”
I remember sitting down hearing that yesterday at HopeNYC’s Father’s Day service and I agree! But I must mention that they learned from the best 👆🏽 In fact all of us do! At HopeNYC, your problem is our problem and your victories and achievements is our celebration! Over the years of attending, I see that the men of God here look out for their church family. Always aiming to encourage, give, teach and intercede in prayer for other sons and daughters. Yesterday, many celebrated their fathers, relatives and father figures and highly exalted their Heavenly Father. The one responsible for all good fathers. There were gifts, testimonies, dances, and more! It was such a good time! Many Hope Kidz spoke out in a video how they felt about their dads. WARNING ⚠️ some are cute and some are funny!
This is the opinion of my iced latte this morning at Compass!
All the flavors your tastebuds should experience with coffee! Strong nutty taste from the espresso which is creamed with cool almond milk stirred with the right teaspoons of sugar. I craved strong and sweet and got it! What do you crave? There’s choices in sweetners, syrups & milk to make your ideal cup of hope! Just ask 😀
This Saturday morning as I work here on the laptop, I see tweens sitting together with frappes, soda, and Sunshine snacks. I’ve seen people today enjoy the Compass sandwiches talking how great the pesto spread tastes. A little boy who actually likes chai tea lattes and a friend of mine that dunked an oatmeal cream cookie in a milkshake. How interesting! Should try it one day! This is a pleasant place to be in the rain right now. Stay dry everyone!
TOMORROW AT 10:30pm! Awesome place to bring your dad! Empowering encouraging Word, gifts and more! It’s always such a special service! He will be blessed!
HOPE DAY SERVICE THIS WEDNESDAY AT 7PM!
NEXT SUNDAY AFTER SERVICE! 🌎 Try foods from around the world!
My recent Instagram Post: Reading the book of Ephesians 💻#Read #Bible #Ephesians #Cookie #Coffee #Outside #Summer #Compass
Last night many accepted the challenge! I am sitting right outside of Compass Cafe starting it off reading on the mac with some coffee & munching on a Jodi Bake cookie! For the next two Hope Day services: We will be digging deep into the book of Ephesians. I am so excited. Excited to fall in love more with Christ and find fresh new things in these love letters written by Paul 🖊 Now the challenge: Read the entire book of Ephesians every day for three weeks with a pencil! Why? God is about to speak!
Need to fall back in love with Christ? ❤️ Are you a new believer or know a new believer? The book of Ephesians is a great place to open the Bible & get started! This new series is a great time to make your first visit at HopeNYC Church! Summer at Hope is starting & it’s usually so suntastically awesome. So much that I think we end up having much more fun than vacation goers ✈️

Tomorrow right outside in front of our building: HOMESTRETCH! See dozens of beautiful amazing testimonies get encouraged like never before!
Heading inside the cafe about to get my coffee! Have you had yours yet? It’s 8am & Compass is opened! Follow me on the way in!
The oatmeal cream pie tonight was delish & FREE! It was crunchy creamy & compact! Not to mention the rich great-tasting center that’s totally Jodi Bakes! I wish I can have it for breakfast tomorrow morning! After today’s life-changing Hope-Day service, it certainly made the perfect after-service snack!

Words can’t express how thankful I am towards Jesus my savior. I’m thankful for waking up this morning to a new day with endless possibilities. Thankful for no feelings of physical pain & the ability to move around actively. I’m doing what I love right now 📸 I am thankful for a growing business, & excited for future job opportunities. We encountered car problems almost 2 years ago but He gave us a better car absolutely free! I’m thankful I’ve actually got a good marriage with someone genuine, amazing & cares greatly about God’s kingdom. Also thankful for a good family & the friends that do keep in contact. Not to mention daily forgiveness of sins, limitless counseling from the Holy Spirit & an upcoming eternal life in Jesus Christ. I am aware that there are plenty of things I do not have & things that are going wrong but at the same time there are too many things going well!
What are you thankful for? Remember to be thankful for the things, people and blessings you have every day! That is how breakthrough is going to come to you!

There’s been a song constantly in my spirit since Sunday. I’ve heard about it and typically enjoy the band but never really listened to this particular song. I Youtubed it and it has really started to just grow on me, speak to me, and really prophecy. It has done the same to others at this very point in time. This is it:
Breakthrough. What a good and needed word to hear right now. I actually witnessed a breakthrough at last night’s Hope day service at HopeNYC. God spoke about breakthrough and before the night was up, the congregation got healed! He wanted to minister to everyone. From the person who had cancer cells down to the person who caught the common cold. Some got healed instantly and some progressively. I can testify that I’ve been getting better by the hour! Jesus is a healer and it is His will that YOUR LIFE is healed!
Breakthrough is the truly word right now and I encourage you to visit HopeNYC to see what God is doing here.
Hope day Service: Wednesdays at 7pm BREAKTHROUGH, PRAYER, DEEPER STUDY IN THE WORD
Sunday Service: 10:30am REVIVAL THIS SUNDAY MAY 21st!
Compass Cafe is opened an hour before service and a little bit after so be sure to sip or snack on something good! All proceeds goes towards helping victims of human trafficking and providing clean drinking water for people in other countries. BRAND NEW! Milkshakes & Sundaes are here just before summer!
