Planting in Tribeca

Planting in Tribeca

By City Collective

In 2011, Michael Rudzena and his wife Kyndi moved to New York City, following God's call to leave Dallas, Texas to plant a church in the neighborhood of Tribeca as part of the Trinity Grace Church family of churches. After a year and a half of seeking God's vision for this new community of believers, the church held its first gathering on Easter of 2013.

Just prior to launch, Jon Tyson sat down with Michael to learn how he discerned the call to New York, Michael's efforts at contextualizing a gospel-centered ministry in the wealthy bohemian culture of Tribeca, and some of the unique ways he and his wife formed community before launching the church. Listen below for the Rudzena's story.
