Friends and citizens of the internet, I give you my current project: The Vine NYC.
Right before Christmas, Lutheran Ministries of Higher Education in NYC (LMHE) approached me, seeking help. After a short conversation, I agreed to serve as their temporary communications consultant as they launch a new model for ministry in NYC. The idea is pretty awesome. University and College ministries in NYC are shifting away from being campus-centric. Instead of focusing on on, say, Columbia University, they’re broadening their model to include multiple leaders covering the entire city. At the church I serve, Advent Lutheran, we have a dozen students from Barnard, Juilliard, Manhattan School of Music, CCNY, Fordham, etc. A ministry for them can’t be focused on only one campus. LMHE is creating a new movement called The Vine NYC. The first event, What’s Love Got to Do With It? is February 7 at Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church in Manhattan. I’m excited about this but I need your help.
Are you on Instgram? Follow us. On Facebook? like us. Know a college student in New York City? Tell them about The Vine and tell me who they are. Even though LMHE has been around for over 100 years, we’re starting this movement from scratch. I think this can really be an awesome resource for college kids in NYC. Help if you can!
