THE MISSION OF CONNECT NYC IS TO PLANT 5 CHURCHES IN EACH OF THE 5 BOROUGHS OF NYC 

ABOUT CONNECT NYC

We believe the local church is and should be the vehicle of God's grace to each and every community. Our team is dedicated to helping people make relationships that will build them up, find projects that will allow us to learn and grow in the Lord, and be involved in the community that surrounds us as well as stay active in each others lives. In short, we are church planting in an urban setting to help others experience community through a local church. 

We are driven to plant 5 churches in each of the 5 boroughs of New York City.

RON & SUSAN TAYLOR

Ron and Susan felt the call to urban church planting during Ron’s sophomore year at Baptist Bible College. After graduating and serving for four years at their sending church, they arrived in New York City in 2008 with a vision to plant 5 churches in each of the 5 boroughs of NYC.  God has already used them to launch two works: one in Brooklyn and the other in Queens. Knowing one of God’s greatest tools is the local church, they are excited about the team God has put together to reach the world through New York City.

Ron and Susan have two teens, Noah and Ally, who are both heavily involved in their ministry.  They are quickly approaching an empty nest and savor any spare time with their kids by sharing a common love for coffee and travel.

Betty developed a heart for missions in High School. Throughout the years she has been on several mission trips. In 2018 she went on a mission trip to New York City to serve with Ron & Susan Taylor. While reflecting on her trip and the immense need for the Gospel in New York City, God confirmed in her heart the call to join the Taylors in New York City. The desire of Betty's heart is to connect the people of New York City with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

BEN & CRYSTAL JOHNSON

Ben and Crystal served in China for three years until God brought them back to the States in 2020. They then realized that God was leading them to change fields to New York City to see churches started. Their heart and desire is to help those who do not know the Lord to realize His goodness and trust in Christ as their Savior. Helping those new believers to grow in their faith, as well as grow closer to God, is their goal and focus. They are excited to see what God does in such a massive and diverse city!
