The New York City Leadership Center Joins the National #GivingTuesday Movement
Pledges Will Expand Initiatives to Provide Leadership Training to Christian Leaders
[November 20, 2013] [New York, NY] -The New York City Leadership Center has joined #GivingTuesday, a national movement to harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners – charities, families, businesses and individuals – to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back and help create a better world.
As a catalyst for the acceleration of Christian leadership effectiveness and influence in New York City and, leading cities nationally and globally, The New York City Leadership Center (NYCLC) knows first-hand the power of collaboration. The NYCLC joins #GivingTuesday to increase awareness of the strategic impact of NYCLC’s Christian leadership development initiatives—including the Leadership Fellows Program and the Global Leadership Summit (broadcast by Willow Creek Association). The Center seeks to replicate best practices and Gospel Movements to other cities through the Movement Day Congress, and the scripture engagement initiative with American Bible Society.
In the last 3 years, the NYCLC has hosted and trained an aggregate of more than 7,000 Christian senior leaders. “Our goals are to inspire leaders, churches and ministries to cultivate partnerships and share best practices as a way of achieving a true gospel movement and resolving some of today’s biggest challenges in our cities, “ states Dr. Mac Pier, founder and CEO, The NYCLC. “History has shown that great spiritual and social movements birthed in New York City – impact the rest of the nation and the world. We believe God can and will do the same in this present time.”
