Dear TGC Queens,

On Sunday, August 13th, we had the privilege of announcing our new church name, Wellspring Church NYC, rooting our future identity in the prophecy of Isaiah 43:19, 

"For I am about to do something new.
    See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
    I will create rivers in the dry wasteland."

We look forward to all that God has in store for us as a church community in the future. Our official re-launch as Wellspring Church will take place on Sunday, September 10th, and we would love for you to join us!

Please feel free to reach out to myself, the church staff, or one of our board members or deacons with any questions that you may have. 

God bless, 
Seth Bazacas



Additionally, on June 25th, as part of our transformation to Wellspring Church NYC we commissioned the following new leaders:

Board of Directors:
Kirby Leung
Nancy Spencer
Jeremy Goss

New Deacons:
Susan Koch
Steve Koch
Christina Cooper

New Children’s Ministry Team Directors:
Ashley Parizek: Coordinator/Admin, and Director of Pre-k and Nursery
Alex and Jake Dinsmore: Directors of Elementary and development of youth program 

A note about each commissioning:

Board of Directors: 
The Board of Directors will meet all of our legal and financial requirements for the state of NY, and oversee all of the fiscal and pastoral accountability for our church as a local body. 

We believe that to care for the people of this community it takes more than just one or two shepherds. We all carry this role one to another. However, additionally we have identified specific individuals in our church to oversee areas of ministry and care as deacons in our church. 

Our Deacon Structure is as follows:
Ashli Lotz: Marriage and Family
Liz and Luis Mendoza: Prayer Ministry
Jacob Thornhill: New Guests and Discipleship
Steve and Susan Koch: Hospitality and Benevolence
Christina Cooper: Community Life

Children’s Ministry Team:
We believe that by moving forward with a Children’s Ministry Team we will increase our capacity for growth, care and sustainability, as we seek to disciple our children in the way of Jesus.
