"Hillsong Church is not built on the gifts and talents of a few, but on the sacrifice of many."
Hillsong NYC doesn’t just happen week to week, it’s built and carried everyday, by everyday people; People who give of their time, talent and energy to make church great for others. Whether it’s sweeping or singing, on Sunday or midweek, volunteering is a fantastic way to forge new friendships while learning new skills or strengthening already established ones.
With so much vision and such large cities to reach, we’ve got a lot to do and “If you ain’t helpin’, you ain’t helpin’!” – Pastor Carl Lentz
