Gospel Assembly Queens
During our years, as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, in collaboration with other associations, organizations and churches, we have contributed to the development of the community in the following ways:
- We started and maintain a food pantry program serving over Five thousand (5000) families per month. In addition, we instituted a food delivery ministry facilitating needy home-bound individuals and families.
- We operate a year-round-clothing drive and a seasonal holiday toy and gift drive.
- We support the communities’ recent immigrant with their cultural adjustments, as they attempt to assimilate into their new American environment.
- We organized and conducted an after-school and summer-school program, and presently cater to our youth’s artistic development by giving weekly music lessons.
- We facilitate the Summer Youth Employment Program for the youth of New York City, which provides a huge relief to the parents of both the students in our summer-school program, and those of the summer-employment program’s participants, while providing income and job experience to the employed youth.
- We administer a dynamic youth ministry, where guidance and counseling are provided, with supervised meetings held weekly, with the objective of restricting the negative influences of drugs, alcohol and street violence, helping them to focus on the positive aspects of life, such as self-esteem, mutual respect, discipline; hence promoting altruism.
- We have aligned ourselves to an accredited academic institution which provides continuing academic support, guidance and supervision, giving the members of our church-community an opportunity to achieve post high-school academic certificates and/or degrees to the Associate, Bachelor, Masters and even the Doctoral levels.
- We have a live 24/7 radio ministry where we provide social services while spreading the ‘Gospel of Jesus Christ’, which convincingly, is the most influential agent of change.
- Our Pastor and Chaplain, Rev. Marc T. Pierre and his ministry has been providing spiritual guidance and counseling, facilitating conflict resolutions and mediations, together with any other community-required services.
- We minister to inmates in prison, as well as to the sick in hospitals and nursing homes, the displaced in shelters, locally and out-of-state.
- We are currently serving as peacemakers in the Dominican-Haitian crisis by making arrangements in taking a stand against racial discrimination regarding the law that was made official on September 23, 2013.
