CNY Youth Fellowship 

Sadeesha Morgan

Sadeesha Morgan Facebook post Dec. 20:

"A thing happened this past Sunday 12/16/2023 it was so amazing to see what the Lord is doing behind the scenes with these youth. Jennifer Brunner Fasulo and her husband are providing a safe place for the youth to fellowship and be poured into concerning the things of God and invited me to come share my testimony and ask questions, WHAT AN HONOR! This was God for my name to be mentioned, it was only God that put it on her heart to invite me. Thank you for trusting me to come and pour into these little soldiers. These youth are on fire for God and hungry for the Lord. When I saw them, I saw soldiers on the front line being raised up to fight back against the plans of the enemy, in places parents are unaware of what’s really going on. Example in the schools: you had to hear what some of what the teens there shared with me. If you see this lift up a prayer for Jennifer, her husband/family, every child coming to these meetings, and in the schools."

Mission Syracuse Caroling at Destiny Mall

Per Mission Syracuse Facebook post Dec. 6:

"Mall Management ... invited us to be caroling in the Atrium at 5PM during the spectacular snow show. How about that?

Imagine a crowded food court and wall to wall shoppers everywhere else, and we just walk in and start with “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Go Tell It On The Mountain.” Tilling the soil and sowing seeds. Entertainment with a message. “… that Jesus Christ is born.”

Pray that God uses this to invite people to look past the store sales… and go back to the manger. John 3:16"

Northside Church Youth/In My Father's Kitchen

In My Father's Kitchen Dec. 12th Facebook post:

CNY Youth - House Church

Per Brandon Joy Facebook post Nov. 26:

"House Church and gathering of many youth groups from different High Schools in the Syracuse area. It was amazing to see the younger generation on fire for the Lord.

Hebrews 10:23-25 NKJV — Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching."

Pastor David Forsythe

Great evening of worship at Third Day Worship Centre (TDWC) in Van Buren on Oct. 21st with TDWC and special guest Roy Fields!

Pastor David Forsythe welcomed the Christian recording artist, who heads Run With Fire Ministries. Fields brings his elevating spirit-filled worship around the world, and he is currently on his 2023 Believers Gathering tour with his wife Melanie. Roy and Melanie moved out of their house in Florida in 2005 to pursue full time ministry. The two of them gave everything away because they knew God was calling them into something deeper.

They now travel along with their two children proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ through worship and their messages.

  I am House of Prayer

Prayer Night

I AM House of Prayer – Syracuse

(Per James Doupe):

"Houses of prayer have been opening around the world in the past fifty years or so, and there are now over 22,000 of them in 155 nations. The I AM House of Prayer in Syracuse opened in November of 2022 at 3650 James St. in Eastwood by the Lord’s leading.

The vision of I AM House of Prayer is to usher in the presence of the Lord through worship and prayer, with the expectation that His presence will result in transformation for the greater Syracuse area.

We are currently open on Monday and Thursday evenings from 6:00-8:30, which we hope to expand to other evenings and also to weekends, as others who share this vision come on board.

This has to be an area-wide effort by the Christian community for us to 'keep the fire on the altar from going out.' (Lev. 6:13)

Although we are looking for the Lord to bring awakening and transformation to the greater Syracuse region, we also have a heart and pray for the state, nation and world. We join with national efforts, such as the current 'Command the Foreword' prayer initiative and the prayer and fasting for Israel this past May.

There is always a strong and sweet manifestation of His presence in our midst, as well as evidence that our prayers are being heard. We are currently calling forth the Biblical worldview of various spheres of society, including government, law, medicine and education. We invite the Christians of this area to join us in this ministry. Although many stay the entire time, people are free to come and go as they are able."

Third Day Worship Centre (TDWC)

TDWC Lead Pastor David Forsythe
TDWC Worship Team
Guest Pastor Bill Ferguson

Fantastic tent revival at Third Day Worship Centre on August 25th in VanBuren! “We decided to have a tent meeting this year for the first time ever because we wanted to reach out to our community and win souls,” associate pastor Greg Annan said. “We believe there is a great need in our community, where people need to be delivered and set free from the bondage of sin.” 

Pastor David Forsythe and special guest Pastor Bill Ferguson from Ontario Canada were among those giving messages. 

Annan said this year’s theme for the church is from Isaiah 43:18-19: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness, and streams in the wasteland.”

The tent meetings started on Wednesday Aug. 23 and continued through Aug. 26.
