Spare a quarter?

Spare a quarter?

Heard that one before, haven't you? The hopeful "any change sir?" is sadly familiar to all of us. No major city in the US is spared of the cries of the poor on the street. And while we all mean well, and hope well, and wish well for them...we often find ourselves doing-nothing.

But, groups of young Coptic people all over the US and Canada are. A certain phenomenon of sorts is sweeping the nation. Young Copts are taking the love of God through His Orthodox church, to the street and proclaiming with their words and actions that "Jesus Christ (JC) is here for you!"
Ministry has grown beyond the "JC4JC" or "Jesus Christ for Jersey City" which began in New Jersey. Now there’s to JC for NYC, for Orlando, for Tallahassee, for Montreal and so on. In these cities and many others, lives are being transformed by the sincere healing power of our Lord. Miracles become a norm. Repentance learned. Bonds of the devil are crushed and our Father in heaven is glorified.

Let's not just applaud...but join them. Show your community that "JC" is for them, too...today.

The NBA Cares...and So does COYBL!

You might have seen the great initiative from the National Basketball Association that has stars such as Kobe Bryant and LeBron James doing more than dunk a basketball...but lend a helping hand in their local communities. 

This year, for the first time, the Coptic Orthodox Youth Basketball League decided to do the same! The "COYBL CARES" campaign launched this season. Partnering with FTFT!, players and coaches from New York and New Jersey are putting down the basketball to hit the streets and show the love of Jesus Christ to those who need it most! Players, coaches and servants are going out and serving pizza to men and women who are homeless in New York City! God is blessing the efforts of these young men by showing weekly fruit! Tears of repentance are a familiar sight...hearts are changed, spirits are lifted, and GOD IS GLORIFIED!
