A new church in Manhattan

Dwell Church is a new church in the Bowery neighborhood. Their vision, through worship and outreach, is to connect the mission of God to the Bowery. They are a group of people  trying to discover and live out the good news of Jesus in this dynamic urban context.

More about Dwell Church

  • Dwell started meeting in late 2011 when a group of friends committed to the flourishing of New York City and the Bowery started gathering together for meals and Bible study on Sunday evenings.

  • Each Sunday at Dwell Church, Pete preaches to a congregation that includes men who were homeless a couple weeks prior, now living at the Bowery Mission, and also Ivy League graduates working on Wall Street. 

  • The Bowery is the oldest street in Manhattan.

Dwelling in the Bowery

Every church planter has a story and mine started in 2004, when I was managing a coffee shop in Grand Rapids. One of my regulars was a friend who had recently returned to Michigan after an 18-month stint in New York City. I had only visited New York once and enjoyed listening to his stories.
