How a Small Church Creates a Big Ministry Impact

With a full-time staff of just three people, Metro Baptist Church serves nearly 1,600 community members in the infamous New York neighborhood known as Hell’s Kitchen through preschool and after-school programs, a teen center, English-language classes for adults, a food pantry and clothing closet, holiday meals, family events and more. An article written by Genine Babakian for Faith & Leadership, an online publication of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School, indicates that Metro’s successes depend upon its 600 regular volunteers and the establishment of a nonprofit arm that has successfully pursued grants and charitable contributions.
