SERVICES IN BAY RIDGE STARTING SEPTEMBER 2017

 

Liberty Church is a family of local church communities, born in New York City in 2011, with a heart for cities everywhere.

Our vision is simply to know Christ and to make him known.

 

We have a growing community of people who call Liberty Church home but who make their home in southwest Brooklyn. We can’t wait to open the doors of a new Liberty Church in Bay Ridge to extend the freedom that we have found to the neighborhoods where we live and work.

A weekly meet-up to help get on the road to connecting our health/fitness with our faith.

Veteran Connection

Each Thursday, 7:00pm in Carroll Gardens

We will be meeting to develop community and camaraderie as veterans who want to grow a deeper understanding of the cross section between our identities as a veteran and that of a child of God . Our goals are to provide a safe space where we can discuss our past experiences and what they mean for our lives now in addition to exploring how we can support other veterans in and around New York City. Due to the sensitive nature of our conversations, this group will be open to military veterans only.

 

GIVING

Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

TESTIMONIALS

LIBERTY BAY RIDGE LEADERSHIP

team_image
Paul + Andi Andrew
Lead Pastors

Paul and Andi Andrew moved to New York City from Sydney, Australia to pioneer Liberty Church in 2010. The first gatherings were around a picnic table in Central Park as they studied the birth of the church in the book of Acts, and prayed over our vision to influence a city that influences the world. They now lead a growing family of local church communities in Downtown Manhattan, Union Square, Downtown Brooklyn, Upper West Side, and Manzini, Swaziland and are currently establishing new communities in Bay Ridge, San Francisco, and St Petersburg, FL. They are also the founders of Liberty City which serves our local neighborhoods “for the greater good” and Liberty Foundation which invests hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in planting local churches globally and helping the hurting around the world. And they support the local expressions of Liberty Church by developing specialized ministries for men, women, and kids and our business community, among others.<br />

Heath + Emily Kirkendoll
Community Pastors of Liberty Church Bay Ridge Brooklyn

The Kirkendolls stumbled upon Liberty Church two years after moving to New York, and, surrounding themselves with a church that has a contagious love for people, they felt their hearts moved toward the city they call home. Living and working in Bay Ridge, they began dreaming of a church that would extend the freedom and love and family they’d discovered to others in their neighborhood. Heath is a high school social studies teacher in Bay Ridge and is passionate about youth, education policy, and, of course, history. Emily served on staff as Finance Director at Liberty Church since it was a year old, witnessing the heart and mission of Liberty expand over many stages of growth. They were engaged during a nor’easter in Boston, married during a blizzard in Toronto, and honeymooned during the rainy season in Zambia. So, they’re pretty much weatherproof. They share a passion for connecting people through the church and seeing lives transformed, and as parents they love helping kids and families thrive in the city.
